Alex Gaskell

I am a teacher who is experienced in the music industry as well as having player for over 28 years.

I welcome students from the age of 11 upwards. I believe everyone should be able to further their passion in music both young and old. I have a host of experience in teaching all ages.

I am a music lover. So because of this, I teach a wide variety of styles on guitar. Everything from Jazz to rock to reggae and everything in-between.

One of the key factors in learning a new instrument is to enjoy it. With that in mind, I like to make sure all of my students enjoy their lessons as i feel this is really important to progressing properly.

What my students say

& why they love my guitar lessons

John Shaw

'I've been a guitar student with Alex for 10 months, previously I had tried to teach myself for over 20 years and it's safe to say that I've learnt more from Alex in the first 3 months of lessons than I achieved previously on my own. Alex has an excellent teaching method.'

Neil Smith

'Alex has a unique way of making the complete beginner feel confident. He listens, nurtures, and encourages while keeping true to teaching the fundamentals step by step. A really great guitar teacher!'

Nicki Merrills

'I have been having lessons for a while now with Alex and I have to say I couldn't ask for a better teacher. I had barely picked up my bass and could barely string 2 bars together when I started, now I'm playing a wide range of music from blues to rock and thoroughly enjoying every minute.'

About Your New
Guitar Teacher

Friendly, helpful and focused on helping you to rapidly learn how to play the guitar.

I am an experienced guitar player who has been playing for over 28 years. I like to draw on this experience to make sure you enjoy my lessons as much as possible. I have extensive experience in performing live as well which I would love to share with you.

As stated before music is my passion and because of this I have experience in teaching every genre you can think of and I realise the importance of learning the music you enjoy. I will always make sure we aim towards learning the music that you love.

The most important thing when learning anything is to enjoy it. Because of this, I will always make sure my lessons are as informative as they are enjoyable to make sure you bring home a wealth of knowledge from every lesson.

As well as a focus on your musical preferences I can also help with guitar theory. Sometimes I find more advanced guitarists may have their playing technique down well but their theory may be a little bit behind. I will always make sure we have a balance of Song work, Theory and exercises to make you progress in the best way possible.

Local Guitar Teacher Tips:

Guitar Shops in Bolton:

There is a wide range of music shops in Bolton, one of the stand out shops has to be Booths Music on 17 Churchgate, Bolton BL1 1HU. This is a great all-round music shop that will have everything you need to get started as a guitarist at a reasonable price.

If you are looking for an even bigger music shop that caters for even more instruments then the HW Music Megastore on St George's Rd, Bolton BL1 2PH is the place to be. Again they have a massive range of everything from guitar equipment to DJ equipment and everything in-between.

Lastly if you want a place that specialises purely on guitar then The Guitar Shack on Octagon Court, Howell Croft, Bolton BL1 1UR is a great small shop that has a great range of acoustic and electric guitars as well as picks, cables, amplifiers and everything else you may need to get started. <\p>

Music Courses in Bolton:

There are a wide range of further educational options involving music in the area actually. The most obvious would probably be The University Of Bolton. They have a wide range of courses on offer including music production and Live events production.

Bolton Sixth Form College also has a wide range of music specific courses available to anyone who wishes to take their learning that bit further. If you perhaps have no experience in the music industry then this would be a great place to widen your knowledge.
