Guitar Lessons Croydon

Hi everyone, I'm Owen & I'm a professional guitar teacher based in Croydon offering high quality guitar lessons for students of all ages. I like to build my lessons around learning the music you enjoy whilst making sure you build good technique and a good understanding of how the guitar works. I like to build my lessons around the student's needs, making sure we always learn in a direction you can enjoy and at a pace that you feel comfortable with. I'm able to teach both beginners and advanced players and I'm always happy to answer any questions you might have about learning to play the guitar.

My Mission

Enjoy Playing The Guitar

Above all else, I want my students to enjoy playing the guitar. I will always come across as a down to earth teacher who you can ask any questions too. I will always make sure the lessons go at a pace that you feel comfortable with as a player. During my time as a teacher I realise that not everyone is the same in terms of learning style. Because of this, I will adapt my teaching style to fit the students interests, playing level & age.

I can help guide you through exams, songwriting, technique, soloing, chords, scales and more. I like to make sure my students fully understand what they are learning. I believe that this is important when learning to play anything or in fact when learning any skill at all. When you have practical uses for a scale or a chord then playing always becomes much more easy to understand. I like to make sure you will learn the genres and musical styles that you enjoy as well.

My Lessons

Learn The Music You Love

Although it's great to learn many different styles, I think that as a beginner, it's best to learn music that you're familiar with and that you enjoy playing and learning. I find that this pushes students to really learn in a direction that they feel comfortable with. I like to make sure my lessons are easy going, easy to understand and I like students to know that they can ask me anything about guitar playing & I'll always be happy to answer.

I have a love for music and it's something that I will always love to share with as many people as possible. I think that learning to play guitar should always be enjoyable. I will always make sure my lessons are both interesting and fun for beginners and advanced players. I like students to let me know what their goals are so that I can build a lesson plan around those goals whilst making sure we don't forget about understanding what we are learning and why we are learning it.

My Experience as a Teacher

I have been playing the guitar professionally for 10 years and have just finished studying at Trinity Laban Conservatoire for a Masters Degree in Jazz performance, where I studied with Mike Outram and Hannes Riepler. I have extensive performance experience in a range of different styles, having played throughout the U.K, Europe, South America and the Caribbean.

My approach to tuition is based on the needs of my students. I have many ideas and concepts for students who want to take their guitar playing to the next level, whether you are a beginner or at an advanced level. I also have experience taking students through graded exams (Rockschool and ABRSM), and applying for College/University auditions.

Besides teaching I am regularly gigging and constantly practising and writing music in order to better my own skills as a guitarist and musician.

Advanced Players Welcome

More About My Lessons

I take a calm approach to teaching and will always make sure the lessons are at a pace that you feel comfortable with. I think that learning guitar should always be fun and this is why i like to keep my lessons both interesting and enjoyable at the same time. I like to talk with my students and make sure we create a lesson plan together to work on.

I like to make sure I help students learn a wide range of skills as well as gaining valuable confidence in their own skills. I can teach song work, song writing, scales, chords, techniques, different genres and much more. I will make sure the lessons are always built around the aspects of learning that you want to focus on.

Learning guitar isn't easy but I will help nurture your playing along the way as well as making sure you become more confident in your playing. If you ever have any questions about learning to play the guitar, please don't hesitate to ask.
