My Experience as a Teacher

I have been in bands and also been in an acoustic duo and played in many bars and pubs. With all my lessons you will get a pdf with tablature that covers everything we did in the lesson and what to practice to help you develop your guitar skills more quickly.

I really love Teaching Guitar and I have found it very challenging over the years but with passion, structure, and goals I have managed to get to where I want to l be and so can you!

Over the years, I have achieved a Grade 6 Rockschool Electric Guitar, Grade 5 Rockschool Electric Guitar, Grade 2 Classical London School of Music & I'm currently studying grade 8 in guitar.

More About My Lessons

I'm registered as a Rockschool guitar tutor and have studied several of their grades independently.

I can support you through their electric guitar grades if this is of interest. I teach a variety of styles from classic rock, hard rock, heavy metal, blues rock, funk rock, blues, funk, jazz-funk, punk, pop-punk, and acoustic and music theory and how to apply it. I can also help with improvising, ear training, improving rhythmically, and advanced electric guitar techniques.

I will make sure you learn in a direction that you want to & will make sure we always learn the music that you enjoy and love.

My lessons are charged at £20 per half hour, £30 per three-quarters of hour and £40 per hour for all of my students.

At the moment, most of my lessons are taught over Skype. However, I also have a dedicated teaching space in the GL52 6TT area of the city.

I offer my tuition to both young learners and adults. I would however, recommend starting no younger than age 5.

Weekly lessons are recommended but if you'd like to learn less frequently then that isn't a problem.
