Bass & Guitar Teacher in Swindon
Email: [email protected]
Hi, I’m Harry, a professional musician specialising in guitar and bass. I’m passionate about giving other people a creative environment and the right guidance to allow them to find the same joy and excitement that I find in making music and playing an instrument.
I’m completely self-taught in all aspects of music (despite being highly qualified!), and I believe that there is no ‘right way’ to play an instrument, just the ‘best way’ for that individual. It’s my mission as a teacher to help foster a love of learning and provide enough encouragement and guidance to allow students to find a style that works for them and brings them joy.
While I was working as a Special Educational Needs Teaching Assistant and Tutor, I learnt a phenomenal amount about teaching methodologies, learning styles, and communication, and ultimately ended up finding a way to build effective learning relationships with lots of different students in different subjects. These skills are invaluable when teaching young people and adults how to play an instrument like the guitar or bass, and enjoy themselves along the way!
Music Qualifications & Achievements:
- I’ve been playing guitar and bass for over 10 years, and working as a professional musician for the last 3 years, performing at hundreds of weddings, corporate events and festivals, as well as touring the UK and Northern Europe!
- BSc in Music Technology – First Class Honours
- BTEC Level 3 National Certificate in Music (Performing) – Distinction
- Grade 5 Music Theory
I teach my lessons from a teaching space located on Seacole Crescent, Swindon, SN1 4GN, UK. My full teaching address will be provided upon your first lesson booking.
“Harry has been a great guitar teacher for my teenage son. He’s relaxed & patient; encourages him & tailors each lesson so that they are tackling the types of music he enjoys & wants to play. Highly recommended!”
