Hello! I'm Ben Turner, a professional guitar teacher based in Brighton. I offer professional guitar lessons for students of all abilities.
I am an experienced teacher with over 7 years experience in teaching as well as being a professional musician for over 15 years.

Professional guitar lessons with a local and trusted teacher in the Brighton area.
I offer one-hour lessons for students of all ages. I feel that during an hour lesson we can really make fast progress in achieving the level you want to be. For young learners, I would recommend not starting any younger than 5.
'Ben has been teaching my daughter for over two years. In this time my daughter has achieved a distinction grade in the Rockschool examination she has sat thanks to Ben’s patience and excellent tutelage.'
'I have been a student of Ben’s for nearly 3 years. Ben has taught me how to read music and this has been incredibly helpful at school where I am in the choir as I am better equipped to follow the music. Ben has shown me how to play the songs I want to learn and he is always very patient with me and explains things very well.'
'Ben started out teaching my son over a year ago and his lessons were so successful that he now teaches my two younger children as well. I would highly recommend him as a guitar teacher.'
I am a very experienced teacher who has been in the music industry for over 13 years. As well as teaching I also perform all over the country as a part of various acts & have achieved a BMus in Popular music performance.
I will always make a lesson plan with you in mind. I will always aim towards learning the music you love and enjoy regardless of the genre as well as learning all of the essential theory you will need to know.
I will always make sure that every lesson you take with me is as enjoyable as is it informative. I believe the key to improving is to enjoy what you are learning.
Music is my lifelong passion. Because of this I love and can teach all genres no matter how obscure they may be. Whether you love Jazz or just want to learn a few pop songs, We will progress together.
I am a mobile teacher. This means that I will travel to your home to take lessons. I feel it is very important when learning something new to learn in a comfortable environment.
With that in mind, your own home is probably the best place to learn. If you have any questions about my home-based lessons please don't hesitate to get in touch.
