My Lessons

Ages 10+

I have experience in teaching students of all ages however, I would recommend starting from age 10 because of the size of both electric and acoustic guitars.

I'm able to teach a wide range of genres including Rock, Pop, Country & Blues.

My Experience as a Teacher

I'm an experienced guitarist and have performed in covers and original bands and have recorded my own material.

I'm currently in the process of completing the RSL Rockschool grades myself and perform to a grade 6 level and I've also completed other online guitar courses including Fender Play.

I currently play as lead guitarist and singer with established and a well-respected covers band. I co-founded an alt-country band 'The Black Widows' that played all over the UK and made two albums.

More About My Lessons

I offer lessons both in-person and online and I'm happy to travel. I have a teaching space at my home which is in Newcastle-under-Lyme close to Stoke-on-Trent and I have all of the equipment necessary.

I realise that every student has their own aspirations and goals. If you're aiming to take a more academic route and learn grades or perhaps you wish to take a more laid back approach and simply want to develop your skills and make music – I will adapt my lessons to your needs! I can accommodate all ages and abilities.

We will always learn in a style and way that you want you. I like all of my students to let me know the styles and genres that they enjoy.

Music Shops in Stoke

Stoke has a few good options when it comes to music shops. Here are a few I would recommend.

The Rhythm House, is the best option for those looking for an all round music shop that has a good range of guitars. You can find them at 21-23 Hope St, Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent ST1 5BT.

A Major Music, is another store that stocks a small range of guitars and even ukuleles. You can also find a lot of sheet music here. The store is located at Trentham Shopping Village, Trentham ST4 8AX.

Music Mania, is a great option if you're looking for a locally owned music shop. They don't stock instruments but sell a wide range of music and CD's if you're looking for inspiration then this is the best place to go. You can find them at 3-6, Piccadilly Arcade, Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent ST1 1DL.
