My Lessons
Here is what I can offer

A musical and holistic way of learning: not just boring scales and theory for their own sake, but actual songs that you like and want to play, as well as how they fit in with the overarching web of practical theory, specifically as it relates to guitar technique. We will learn how music works through the songs and genres that you love.

A structured method to progress in both guitar playing and musical knowledge. All foundational and advanced elements of musical theory and practice covered – scales, arpeggios, picking techniques, improvisation, genre exploration, composition, reading musical notation, tablature and chord symbols and more.

Prices:
£15 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.

This is in combination with a tried and tested course of guitar lessons that have proven an excellent foundation for learning the guitar. For more advanced students we will start by exploring the aspects of your musicality that you wish to improve upon and then get to work building a tailored course of lessons that will help you reach that next level on guitar.
