My Mission

Enjoyable Guitar Lessons for Adults

I pride myself on offering high quality guitar lessons for my students. I like to make sure my lessons are always fun and exciting, with complete beginners welcome to attend. I only teach adult learners, but help students starting from any level, with lessons carefully built around the music that inspired them to start playing the guitar.

If you wish, I offer the chance to take graded exams and I will also help you prepare for the exam.

My Experience as a Teacher

I first started playing the guitar 15 years ago when my brother bought an acoustic for himself and I couldn't wait to have a go. Since then, I've worked my way up to grade 7 with Trinity College London, which means I'm very familiar with the ins and out of preparing for and taking exams.

As well as that, I've spent numerous hours reading books, visiting websites, watching YouTube videos and experimenting to harness my abilities. I've also built up a large bank of songs, some just the chords that I strum out and sing along to and others the amazing guitar riffs, licks and solos of tunes we all know and love.

As well as having a natural ability to explain things in a way people can understand with ease, I'm very organised, almost to OCD proportions, which means I give lessons to a high standard. Over many years, I've created tonnes of teaching resources, all of which I use to guide and support my students.

More About My Lessons

If you're a complete beginner, don't worry because that was me once too so I know what it's like! For your first lessons, I'll provide a guitar if you need one so you don't have to burden yourself with that expense until you're confident you want to carry on. We'll work at a pace that suits you and I'll have you up and running in no time with a few simple chords and songs.

If like me, you've been playing for years, you'll have a different motivation for seeking a tutor. Maybe you want to extend the skills you already have, perhaps there are gaps in your knowledge that are hindering your progress, it's possible you're an expert in certain elements but a novice in others and you want to develop yourself as an all-round musician. If any of these are you, I'm here to help.

Why choose me over another teacher? Well, what I offer that many other tutors don't is that I will come to you. This means that not only do you get to avoid any hassle with travelling but you can learn from the comfort and security of your own home. Alternatively, if this is your preference, I provide lessons through FaceTime or Skype.

Music Shops & Courses

Music Shops and Courses In The Local Area

Music Shops & Courses in Winchester

Winchester is only a small place so sadly when it comes to options for music shops or music courses you are best travelling further out for more options. However, Here are my favourite picks.

Hayward Guitars, This is a great small place that offers amazing and fast repairs. you can find them on 38 Stockbridge Rd, Winchester SO23 7BZ.

The University Of Winchester, is great if you are looking to pursue anything musical when it comes to further education. They have both music options and sound production options which are both great and interesting courses.

I can help you to

If you live in Winchester or the local surrounding areas, get in touch and we can discuss setting up an introductory lesson. For those who live further afield, I'm more than happy to make the journey to you but I would ask for a reasonable fee to cover my travel expenses. Please note that my lessons are for adult students and I do ask for the money for any parking expenses I incur whilst in your home teaching you.
