My Experience as a Teacher

Alongside a BA in Popular Music Performance and a HND Popular Music Performance (Distinction) I have many years teaching experience, helping students of all abilities to progress on the guitar.

I believe that incorporating the music that you want to learn will make playing and our lessons far more enjoyable, so my lessons are a blend of carefully selected exercises to build your technical ability with songs that help you hone your skills.

Beginner students are more than welcome to come for lessons, including those who have never played a guitar before. I can also help intermediate and more advanced students to push their guitar ability forward - ideal for guitarists who feel they are stuck in a rut. I teach both acoustic guitar and electric guitar across a wide range of genres, so whatever your musical taste and ability I have the lessons to help you reach that next level.

More About My Lessons

I understand exactly what it feels like to be a beginner and will make 100% sure you feel comfortable at all times. There's no need to feel worried or nervous when you come along for your first lesson. You'll instantly feel at ease with a cup of his trademark tea/coffee or whatever other beverage you prefer (seriously though try the rocks!) and a friendly chat about exactly what you'd like to achieve.

My lessons are structured to give the student a clear path when studying the guitar. Too many teachers jump between subjects with no real flow from lesson to lesson, ultimately resulting in the student growing frustrated from a lack of progress.

That's not so with my lessons, you can rest assured that every lesson will have a purpose and a specific aim to push your playing forwards and get you achieving your guitar playing goals!

I can help you to

I am an enthusiastic and patient teacher with a first-hand experience of how enjoyable private lessons can be. After ten years of private tuition, I studied at the Academy of Contemporary Music, achieving a BA (Hons) in Popular Music Performance. I have since worked as a guitarist on stage, in the theatre pit and in the studio, as well as teaching a wide range of students here in Exeter.

Frequently Asked Questions

Lessons are priced at £18 per half-hour or £30 per hour lesson.

I teach my guitar lessons from my home studio located on Greyfriars Road, Exeter, EX4 7BS. It is great place to learn guitar, with parking out the front and a relaxing atmosphere. You can view this location on the map below.

I welcome students from the ages of 6 years old and upwards to attend lessons. I have a lot of experience tutoring younger learners, as well as helping many adult learners start to learn to play the guitar. Age, or shall we say life experience, is certainly not a factor in preventing a student from learning guitar, so if you are picking up the guitar for the first time and are worried you have left it too late to learn you have nothing to fear - a few lessons and bit of practice and you will quickly settle into the grove of learning.

Not at all, we can have lessons whenever you want. Most of my students have a guitar lesson once a week, with a few having lessons once a fortnight or even twice a week. It is really up to you.

Of course, you can take your lessons in electric or acoustic, the choice is yours!

My cancellation policy is to charge 50% of the lesson fee for a cancellation with less than 24 hours notice if unable to re-arrange that week.
