Guitar Teacher in Newcastle-under-Lyne
Email: [email protected]
I began teaching guitar at the age of 18, just before going to study at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. I honed my teaching skills whilst still a student myself and have since had many pupils, from children to middle-aged people, with various interests and abilities.
Coming from a classical background and having studied more contemporary styles including jazz, I can cater to whatever genre a student is interested in, whilst emphasising key fundamentals such as reading notation and basic harmonic understanding.
Many of my older students have wanted to develop their technique just enough to be able to play through some pop songs, so I now consider myself quite adept at identifying aspects of a person’s playing which when fixed can really elevate their playing. It’s important to me that I make learning the guitar enjoyable as well as informative, so I try to make lessons as interactive and as fun as possible.

I can vouch for George being a highly talented guitarist with extensive experience as both a soloist and ensemble player, across a broad range of styles. He has outstanding technical ability and is an engaging and highly skilled musician. He is a very approachable and friendly guy too.
I met and started working with George around 6 years ago, when I was working with my band. We were searching for a new guitarist and I was told about a wonderful young classical musician who might be interested in playing with us. As soon as George started with us it was instantly clear that he was, even back then, technically extremely gifted.
Not only that but it was instantly clear that he possesses an incredible overall feel for music, as he easily played through a number of styles with us. In the band George played Rhythm and Lead guitar on a variety of styles including; Hip-hop, jazz, funk, rock and most recently reggae.
In the six or so years George worked with us, he has been a great person to have in the band. He has a great sense of humour, obviously always enjoyed playing his guitar and was always reliable too.
I would highly recommend George to anybody who wants to learn music, or work with him in future. The entire band will miss him not playing with us anymore
I’ve had lesson with George for a couple of months now and I can already play one of my favourite songs. Before I contacted George I struggled learning from a book as I had no one to keep me motivated. Having George give me homework keeps me practicing as I know he’ll be able to tell if I haven’t paid it my due attention. I can hear the difference in the sound I am producing to know I’ve picked the right teacher for me.
So far I only had 2 lessons with George but already I’m learning to play songs of my own choosing. He’s helping me get out of little habits that I developed by myself that will prove my technique.
