My Lessons

Lessons cater to all Ages and Abilities

I welcome students of all abilities, including complete beginners. The number one objective for me when giving lessons is that the student is enjoying the learning process. I like to keep the lessons fun and relaxed at all times ,learning to play guitar should be exciting not stressful.

Lessons are tailored to the students needs and ability and do not require any previous experience. My focus for the first lesson is on developing a sense of what direction the student would like to go in terms of the style of music they wish to play and creating a plan for future lessons going forward.


£30 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; the lessons can provide everything you'll need to be the guitarist you've always wanted to be.

Lesson Focus

Perfect the Fundamentals

Learn the parts of the Guitar, The Names of the Strings, Learn some Simple Songs and Famous Riffs, Power Chords and basic Strumming Patterns

My Experience as a Teacher

I have studied music from School age through to University whilst taking private guitar lessons and exams in my own time. I fell into teaching the guitar whilst I was at College after having a good experience with my own professional lesson.

I quickly realised I had a passion for teaching others how to play, seeing people progress lesson after lesson is just as inspiring now as it was when I started. In my experience as a teacher I have seen many people go from complete beginners to advanced players and that gives me a great sense of job satisfaction, I love my job.

Alongside my time as a guitar teacher and studying music I have acquired more that 10 years worth of live performance experience which has come in handy when my students start gigging and need to know how things work when performing live.

Lessons Focus

Developing to the Intermediate/Advanced Level

Covering Open Chords, Barre Chords, More Complex Chord Extensions and Progressions, Harmony, High Tempo playing, Solos

More About My Lessons

All ability levels are welcome, with the majority of my students being beginners my main focus is to get the student playing the foundations well. The guitar playing journey can be confusing if you don't know where to start, and can be made more difficult if you start with the wrong technique.

This is why the foundation phase of my lessons is heavily focus on not only learning the basics but learning them with the right technique. Intermediate guitarists can benefit from taking lessons as well.

Often after a few years of playing you can hit a sticking point and may need guiding in a new direction to allow your playing to grow further. It also doesn't hurt to take a few lessons to brush up on the smaller details of your playing and technique, sometimes we all need it.
