My Mission

Metal & Rock Electric Guitar Lessons

I regularly teach many sub-genres of rock & metal guitar playing including progressive metal (prog), classic rock and djent. Thanks to my many years of teaching students of varying abilities, I have become efficient in nurturing great technique and confidence right from the first lesson.

My musical achievements, I am proud to state, have included performing as a finalist in numerous highly regarded guitar events throughout the past several decades such as International Guitar Idol, Acoustic Guitarist Of The Year and Guitarist Of The Year. The experience I have gained through composing, performing and teaching alike have revealed to me the key aspects of metal guitar playing that all students, beginner or advanced, will surely take value from.

My Experience as a Teacher

I have taught guitar professionally and regularly for over 30 years, educating hundreds of students at all stages of life and skill level.

Much of my time as a teacher has also been spent educating players on other valuable musical skills, such as the understanding of music theory, sight reading and ear training for those wishing to pursue. These topics are not compulsory, however they certainly do help in gaining a broader musical perspective and training.

I am well versed in giving lessons via online platforms. Over the years, I have developed specific techniques to fully adapt to remote, digital teaching.

More About My Lessons

My lessons have always been uniquely tailored to suit the needs and interests of individual students. There is no 'one method fits all' approach; personal goals and traits will always determine how lessons are structured.

After years of experiencing life through guitar as a performer, composer and teacher, my students now benefit from 3 decades of experience. I guarantee quality information that will bring your playing to the next stage.

I always ensure relaxed and positive learning for all. The satisfaction of my students is top priority! I strongly believe that the happier the learner, the greater and more effective the sessions will be for both parties.

Frequently Asked Questions

Lessons cost £15 for half an hour, and £25 for a full hour.

Lessons take place online via Zoom, Skype, WhatsApp, Facetime and more. This often works well for students from all over the world seeking the guidance of a specialist!

I teach all ages from 6 years old upwards. I would like to make adults aware that I regularly teach older students and often see great results! Age is certainly not a factor when learning guitar.

Certainly not. I completely understand how busy life is, so I am more than happy to arrange structures that suit you. In order to ensure consistent progress however, I do recommend attending a session every two weeks.

If your schedule does not allow for our arranged time slot then that is absolutely fine, however I must insist that students adhere to a 48 hour cancellation policy. This simply means that you must notify me 48 hours or sooner of an inconvenient session in order to keep my time efficient and your money unspent.
