My Lessons

Lessons Suitable for any Student

Over my years of playing and teaching guitar I have worked with students of all different levels and feel comfortable working with anyone. Each lesson is tailored and structured to you, so no matter if you have never played a guitar before or if you have been playing for years. Any student is welcome!

The lessons will cover all elements of what it takes to be a good guitar player. This includes not only studying and learning the practical techniques needed but also the music theory and the behind the scenes of music too. I feel both elements are just as important as each other when it comes to growing and developing as a musician.

Prices:


£15 per 1/2 hour
£25 per hour

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

All Styles & Genres Covered

Whether this be Rock, Jazz, Blues, Pop, Classical, Metal, Folk; my lessons can provide everything you'll need to be the guitarist you've always wanted to be.

My Experience as a Teacher

Hi! I’m Daniel Carpenter, a professional electric guitarist, composer, and songwriter from and based in Birmingham, I’m keen to pass on my knowledge and experience to students of all ages and abilities.

As an electric guitarist, I can teach for both ‘standard’ guitar (6 strings in E standard), and I can teach for extended range instruments such as 7 string guitar, if the student is interested in branching out into that!

My guitar teaching comes from a background of gigging, recording, and groundbreaking academic research, so whether you want to play lead guitar in a band, play your favourite songs, or learn theory and prepare for University while playing guitar, I can definitely enrich your playing. For composers, I draw from a multitude of influences, including modern rock and pop, 21st and 20th century classical music, and anything in between, from Takemitsu to Debussy, Birtwistle to Beastie Boys. My philosophy is, if it exists, you can and should learn from it, I hope we get to introduce each other to a lot of new music. Regardless of what your background is and what your intentions are, I can definitely help you and provide you with a new and unique perspective on your writing that can take you to the next level.

More About My Lessons

I can also prepare any student for theory grade exams. I taught myself up to ABRSM grade 8 theory when I was preparing for University, and so I want to provide a more laid back, lower pressure setting, where students can discover the best ways for them to learn and apply music theory. I can also teach theory far above ABRSM standard, and give feedback on Musicological, composition, and analysis based work for University students and aspiring academics.

My lessons are based around what the student wants to learn. Whether that is to complete a few grades or simply to learn a few songs for fun. I can definitely help you with whatever you wish to achieve. However, I will make sure every student has a good understanding of the guitar as well as going through all the necessary exercises to reach your goals.

I welcome students of all abilities. If you are a beginner and have no idea where to start or have had problems learning. I guarantee you will make progress taking lessons with me. Alternatively, if you are a more experienced player with a certain goal in mind or have had an issue with a certain aspect of your playing, we can make a lesson plan that works for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

The standard lesson prices are £25 for an hour or £15 for half an hour.

I'm a mobile teacher which means that I will travel to you for your lessons.

My lessons cater for students of all ages (6+).

No, there is no demand for regular lessons to be had, really it's about what works for you. I do however recommend that around one hour per week tends to allow for the most consistent progression.

Any lesson cancelled within 48 hours of the agreed lesson time can still be charged for. I understand that things out of control can pop up from time to time and will always be happy to work with you in the most reasonable way possible. Once confirmed however, any cancelled or no show lessons can still be charged for at full cost if no prior notice (within 48 hours of the lesson) is given.
