Guitar Teacher in Sheffield
Email: [email protected]
Hi there! I’ve been told by my students that I’m “super friendly”, “really easy to understand”, “a very funny guy” and “excellent at exaggerating quotes”…
I love playing the guitar and learning about music, and I think this carries over into my lessons – they are always fun, practical, relaxed and as straightforward as possible.
I have taught guitar to students of all ages and abilities and I also have experience in teaching students with disabilities. I’m able to teach in any style or genre, though I specialise in rock, pop & jazz. I tend to fill lessons with as much musicality as possible; we’ll focus on whatever you enjoy playing!
I’ve been performing music for over 10 years now, in all sorts of different bands and groups: rock bands, funk bands, jazz ensembles, big bands, theatre pits – you name it! I currently run a wedding and function band in which I play 8-string hybrid guitar and sing (sounds a bit crazy, I know!) and travel around the UK. I also have a lot of experience with recording and mixing music, having done this a lot for band promotional material.

Robbie is a fantastic teacher, he’s super friendly, patient and easy to understand (especially for a beginner like myself). He also provides a lesson-recap video after the lesson which is perfect for me when I want to remember what we covered during the lesson. 5/5 stars!!
I got Robbie’s number the old fashioned way: it was on a noticeboard in a shop. Robbie is patient and very consistent in his calmness. My ability is somewhat basic and he was able to come down to basic level and get the ideas across to me. He re-stated what he had shown me by sending me e-mails with video files attached -plenty of stuff to work on. That, to me, showed generosity. Can I recommend him? Oh yes! I am 58 and Robbie is not yet 30 but I found him wise beyond his years, so to anyone who is an older learner I very much recommend him.
Robbie is a brilliant teacher whose motivation to share his extensive knowledge of the guitar and its place in music has been a source of real inspiration for me as a student. I’ve found his approach to lessons to be creative, methodical and thoroughly enjoyable, a combination of factors which has really allowed me to progress to a level that I wasn’t able to attain with past teachers. Robbie is one of the nicest people you’ll meet and is very passionate about the guitar. I like learning about a range of musical styles and I’ve found him to be comfortable teaching in any genre. He’s obviously a phenomenal guitar player, yet he effortlessly breaks down complicated ideas to their basic, digestible components, and that has really helped me focus and maintain steady progress throughout my guitar-learning journey. Overall, I really rate Robbie very highly as a teacher and an all-round genuinely lovely person, and I can’t recommend him enough.
Robbie is a great teacher, he goes at whatever pace you like and is very helpful as he sends diagrams of what we’ve learned and notes after the lessons. Really recommend him.
Really good guitar tutor! Would recommend for all levels of guitar playing! Beginner or expert! Has a really good understanding of music and can teach it well!
