My Lessons
Here is what I can offer

I think everyone has an innate ability to understand music at some level, and that it can be trained in various ways to do it better. Therefore, I apply my own learning philosophy to my students: to teach them how to fish!

I can teach you specific songs that you want to learn, which is great for any beginner or experienced player wanting to take the next step of improvement. But if I can teach you how to learn and teach yourself, by showing you what to listen and look for, then you can stop paying for teachers like me and grow your own musical abilities independently! After all, isn\’t being able to do it yourself so much more rewarding?

Prices:
£13.50 per half hour
£25 per hour

Lessons are pay-as-you-go, weekly, fortnightly or as suits you.

Check out the prices page for more information about the cost of lessons.

Regular Lessons

I would recommend booking a regular lesson, either on a weekly or fortnightly bases, to ensure that you can progress at a good speed. After many years of teaching, I know that students that take sporadic lessons don't get results that they desire from learning guitar. Consistent lessons and practice is the key to success.

I can help you

My guitar playing has been heavily influenced by the skills I’ve applied from the other instruments I play, therefore I have a versatile array of styles that I comfortably and confidently teach. Artistically, it has been influenced mainly by Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Frank Zappa, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, Tony Iommi, Zakk Wylde and Dimebag Darrell among others. Therefore, I am able to extensively and intricately teach my students various genres such as blues, rock, funk, metal, pop, RNB, but also Non-Western genres such as Latin, Indian, and Tuvan (if you are interested).
