Lessons & Costs
As a professional guitar teacher, I am able to cater for students who are complete beginners to more advanced guitarists. I welcome students who have never held a guitar before to attend their first guitar lesson with me. I start them on the road to acquiring the musical skills needed to play guitar riffs, solos and chord patterns with accuracy and confidence.
All my lessons are tailored to suit each one of my students learning needs and musical interests. I take into account a students age, offering lessons to young learners of the age of 6 upwards. I have created special courses of lessons dedicated to helping younger students to progress when learning to play the guitar. In addition, I also provide a foundation course of guitar lessons for adult beginners.
During my guitar lessons, I am keen to focus on bands, songs and genres that a student is interested in. Afterall, I want to enthuse my students to practice at home! Rock, pop, alternative, acoustic and blues are just a few of the many genres I cover. I draw on many years teaching experience, as well as a university degree In Popular Music and a Level 5 Professional Diploma in Song Writing to help structure my lessons.
My lessons are charged at £15 per half hour / £25 per hour. I provide a mobile guitar service, enabling me to visit students across Brighton to teach them in the comfort of their own homes. I also have a teaching space in central Brighton, enabling students to travel to me to attend lessons should they wish to. For more information about my lessons, as well as to book your first guitar lessons with me, don’t heistate to get in touch.
I am very lucky as a guitar teacher to have worked with some tremendously talented and enthusiastic guitar students. It is awesome to teach lessons to students of any ability if their passion for playing the guitar and their willingness to learn is there. Over my years of teaching, my students have been kind enough to provide testimonials about my guitar tuition.
I work very hard to ensure that my students really understand the music that they are learning to play. This is more than simply learning the order of the notes or the technical aspects of how to play the riff/chord rhythm. It is about delving deep into the music to explore the concepts, theory and musicianship behind a piece of music. This is something that my students really value. With Joe, one of my guitar students commenting that he “couldn’t understand music having been taught by a number of teachers before having lessons with Jake. Jake explained everything to me in a way that I could understand. Cheers bud!”
It was a real challenge to say goodbye to students I have taught for many years in Leicester when I relocated to Brighton to launch Guitar Lessons Brighton. A parent of one of my students Maria noted when I announced that I was relocating that “Jake is a great teacher and has really helped develop my son’s musical ability and overall learning ability in school, it’s a shame he’s moving! We will miss him.” Come and join my community of guitar students to receive the same high-quality professional guitar tuition that my current students enjoy so much!
