My Mission

Electric & Acoustic Guitar Lessons

My lessons are driven by the music you love - I teach everything from Ed Sheeran to Metallica covering all styles and teach both electric and acoustic guitar. I like for my students to make sure they let me know the music that they enjoy so I can build a learning direction and lesson plan around that.

I pride myself on making sure my lessons are enjoyable for all of my students. Together we will create a lesson plan that suits your needs whilst making sure you get the most out of your lessons. If you ever have any questions about guitar I will always try my best to make sure I give you detailed answers that are easy to understand.

My Lessons

Guitar Lessons with Students in Mind

I like to create a lesson plan tailored to the student, focused on their individual goals and help them enjoy learning their favourite music while progressing rapidly on the guitar. I've always found that this is the best way to really improve as a skilled guitar player and also as a beginner. Learning familiar music and songs is the key to positive learning.

I believe everyone should be able to experience the pleasure of playing a musical instrument. This is why I offer lessons to students of all ages and abilities. However I would recommend waiting until age 6 to begin playing the guitar. I will make sure your lessons cover everything from theory to understanding without making sure we focus on your technique.


£15 per 1/2 hour

My Experience as a Teacher

I’m Lewis, a musician who has been performing and teaching in the Aberdeen area for the past 17 years.

While at college I taught at Sound Ideas and later began piano teaching privately. Throughout this time I have been very active in the music scene, and so in lessons, there is an emphasis on practicality. This includes music theory.

I can teach both electric and acoustic guitar in a wide range of styles. Please make sure to let me know what direction you want to learn in when getting in contact.

Lessons Focus

Progress from an intermediate to advanced

Helping students to push on from intermediate players to advanced guitarists
