Book lessons with professional guitar teacher Jake South
Hello! I'm Jake South, a professional guitar teacher based in Bath. I offer high-quality guitar lessons in the Bath area.
Over the past 15+ years I have gained invaluable experience playing the guitar. Originally starting at the young age of 14, I have played in a wide variety of band each with its own unique style including classic rock, heavy metal and acoustic.
I believe everyone should experience the joy of playing an instrument, that is why my lessons are open to students of all ages and abilities.

Prices for high-quality guitar lessons with a professional tutor based in Bath.
Half an hour lessons are best suited to younger learners and beginner students having their first introduction to the guitar.
One hour lessons are best suited to students who are driven to practice and would like to progress rapidly in a short space of time.
My obsession with music and guitar eventually took me to Canterbury where I graduated from a Music Degree with honours from Canterbury Christ Church University.
I pride myself on being a friendly and approachable teacher. I was once a student myself so I understand how daunting it can be, although I can be sure you will be put at ease and progress rapidly in our lessons.
All my guitar lessons are driven by what you want to learn, whether it is Ed Sheeran or Jimi Hendrix, my lessons will help you play the music you love! My lessons are structured so you can learn as fast as you wish, held in a relaxed studio environment and guaranteed to have you playing the guitar in no time.
I have been teaching guitar in Bath for over 5 years, and in that time have gained invaluable experience to help other guitarists achieve their goals, from learning their favourite songs to understanding complex music theory, scales and soloing techniques.
I teach some of my lessons from a specialised teaching studio within Beechen Cliff School, Alexandra Park, Kipling Ave, Bath, Somerset BA2 4RE.
This is a fantastic location to learn as it contains all the resources we need for great guitar lessons, plus it is close to public transport links, being only 2 miles from Oldfield Park station.
I also offer the unique service of mobile guitar tuition, meaning I can travel to you to take guitar lessons from the comfort of your own home.
My full address will be disclosed once we arrange your first lesson.
