Guitar Teacher in Tottenham
Email: [email protected]
Music has been part of my life for as long as I can remember, all the way back to Cagliari, Italy, where I was born and raised. During these formative years, alongside studying classical guitar, private tuition in jazz guitar particularly fuelled my passion for modern styles, with the music of Jimi Hendrix, Santana, Led Zeppelin, and Pat Metheny providing a window to the fascinating world of rock, jazz, and blues.
Nowadays, as a freelance session guitarist and guitar tutor, I have a wealth of experience in live music, studio recording, session playing, and songwriting and enjoy the versatility and creativity of working across a wide range of genres, from pop and blues to acoustic folk and rock.
As a guitar teacher, I have been catering to beginners as well as those at an intermediate level and beyond. My lessons are a combination of practice and theory so the student will not only learn how to play a chord or a song but he/she will also understand how chords and scales work together.
I’m experienced in teaching kids as well as adults, I hold an enhanced DBS check and I can also help the student in case he/she is looking to attend a grade examination. I strive to make my lessons fun and interactive as I always provide bespoke studying materials.
They are personalized to fit the student needs – whether he/she just recently picked up a guitar, he/she is on a more advanced level, or he/she simply needs more inspiration and motivation to develop his/her existing skills. I love teaching and my greatest reward is seeing the student achieve his/her goals!
I offer discounts for bookings of 5 or more classes.
It is an extra £5-10 approx if the lesson is conducted at your house (depending on how far I have to travel).
I also offer transcriptions for acoustic and electric guitar, with tabs, standard music notation and lyrics in sync with the score. Please get in touch for a quote – I can also provide examples of previous transcriptions.

I teach my lessons from a teaching space located on High Road, London, N17 6QN, UK. My full teaching address will be provided upon your first lesson booking. I also offer online and mobile lessons (subject to my availability and your location). For more information about my music lessons simply get in touch.
Excellent work from Filipo, perfect transcription of guitar tune, done very quickly and professionally, will highly recommend Filipo to anyone for guitar tuition.
Great lesson tailored to my ability, lesson covered multiple techniques, and the theory behind them.
Very good. A great teacher for my son who keeps learning and getting better.
So far we are very pleased with Filippo. He has a very professional attitude and clear learning program that goes step by step for a child to understand the instrument, the techniques, hand positioning, and how to play correct notes, pauses, and how important that is, etc. He comes with learning sheets for practice until the next lesson and suggests learning material for a child. You really get a full hour of a proper tutorial without wasting time on unnecessary chat with children or parents.
He is definitely not a”pick a song I’ll teach you” person, very much hands-on about his work.
As everything new, I was very excited to play the guitar for the very first time, and Filippo, with his patience, didn’t let down my expectation! I really enjoyed my lesson as Filippo is very passionate about guitar and teaching comes very natural for him. Can’t wait for the next lesson!
