Teacher Tips

Music Shops in Leeds

Music Shops in Leeds

As a teacher, I often get asked to recommend places to stock up on all your guitar essentials. Here are a few stores in the Leeds are that I would suggest checking out.

PMT, located on Citygate, 9 Kirkstall Road, LS3 1LH is a great place to start for guitarists all abilities. Massive stock of guitars, including Gibson, Fender, PRS, Ibanez, ESP, amps and guitar equipment.

Ed Allen

Hello, my name is Ed - I teach guitar to all ages and abilities and work with students to develop both their technical ability and their creative ideas. I cover most genres with a particular focus on Jazz, Blues, Rock and Pop.

I started playing the guitar as a teenager and went on to continue my studies at Leeds College of Music where I received both a Degree and a Masters Degree. I received jazz guitar tuition throughout my university education from accomplished tutors including Jamie Taylor and Ulrich Elbracht.

I have played jazz guitar alongside artists including John Surman and Jean Toussaint at prestigious events such as the Montreux Jazz Festival. Aside from working as a jazz musician, I have played the guitar at a very high professional level for both function and commercial bands as well as in original rock, pop, soul and funk bands.

“Ed is one of the most competent musicians I’ve met; someone who is adaptable and authentic across all genres thrown at him. He’s incredibly knowledgeable in music theory and music production, while also being boundlessly creative.”
– N. Widdowson
