My Experience as a Teacher

I have always loved the guitar and have had a passion for it ever since I was young. I received lessons myself at a young age which allowed me to grow and develop very quickly. I used to watch famous artists and used to dream of being good enough to play them. This was a huge driving force behind my own progression as a guitar player.

I understand that learning the guitar, and really any other instrument, can sometimes be a difficult and frustrating process. Therefore it's my job to help motivate and guide you through the rough patches so we can come out the other side as a better player. Always remember, Practice Practice Practice!.

I enjoy teaching and working with students of all ages. I accept that Children will learn differently to Adults and as such I will always tailor and structure my lesson plans to meet the needs of that individual student. Lessons provided offer an insight in to both the Practicial and Theoretical sides of music.

Lessons Focus

Intermediate / Advanced Students Welcome

Complex Chords, Full Songs, Solos, Composition and Harmony

More About My Lessons

Motivating people to stay focused and to practice on the guitar can be a very difficult task, but with the right guidance and appropriate goal setting, together I feel confident we can get you to be the guitar player you've always wanted to be. Maintaining regular practice in between guitar lessons is crucial for allowing yourself to develop and grow as a musician.

For those more advanced students, my lessons will deeply explore a wide range of musical topics covering both practical and theoretical elements such as Scales, Composition, Harmony etc. I believe having an understanding of the behind the scenes of music is just as important as being able to play your instrument technically well.

I have played and performed Gigs in and around Scarborough for around the last 25 years or so. This means I have many years experience as an active musician within the local scene. I have also graduted with a BA Hons degree in Music. These experiences and qualifications combined have allowed to provide high quality guitar lessons for a wide range of students.
