Interested in learning how to play the guitar? Book your first lesson today with professional music teacher Greg Michael.
Hello! My name is Greg Michael and I am a professional Guitar Teacher based in Epsom.
I provide guitar lessons to individuals and small groups (of up to 3 people) to all ages from 3+!
I have been teaching guitar for 11 years and I now have my own Guitar Teaching business called 'Wimbledon School of Guitar'.
I teach students of all ages from 3 and up and can also provide group lessons of up to 3 pupils. No previous experience is needed either!
I'm comfortable playing all styles and genres of music including: Fingerstyle Acoustic, Folk and Country, Acoustic Blues, Pop, Rock, Country, Slide Guitar etc.
On street parking available at my home studio where the lessons take place. Easy to find location not too far from the Epsom Premier Inn North.
Professional Guitar Lessons provided for students of all ages and abilities. Some students enjoy taking lessons as part of a small group and tend to find one hour a week allows for steady and healthy progress!.
Half an hour lessons are available to all students but tend to be more suited to younger students whose attention span may be overwhelmed by an hour or those simply on a tighter schedule.
One hour lessons allow for a more thorough exploration and guidance in lessons and generally allow healthier progress. Students have more time to ask any questions they may have and more content can be covered each session. I would recommend One hour a week for those keen on seeing results.
'Like many people I have had many attempts to learn to play guitar over the years but often reached a plateau and gave up. When I stopped full-time work I found Greg who is by far the best Guitar teacher I have found.'
'Greg is a fantastic teacher and a great guide to the seemingly never-ending world of guitar. Having properly started learning the instrument in my early twenties, like many others I was initially reliant on Youtube videos and DVD lessons to progress. I can honestly say that in terms of progress, working with Greg has pushed me to expand my repertoire and open myself up to new styles of playing.'
'I decided to try to play a song as a surprise for my wife at our wedding as I had a guitar (which she had bought for me as a present!) that I had never learned to play. Thanks to Greg’s laid back approach, genuine passion to help me improve and some intensive lessons, the project was a success.'
I have played the guitar since I was 17 years old and have been teaching privately for around 11 years. I have performed in bands and been a part of professional recordings. I initially started the guitar learning from magazines and playing along with my favorite bands, but then i started taking lessons and realised a good teacher could help me achieve my goals faster. I want to share this same inspiration with my students.
Over the years of playing the guitar I have become very confident in lots of different styles and genres of music. I play both Acoustic and Electric guitar which offers a whole range as well as some Slide guitar. My earlier influences consist of bands like Deep Purple and Guns N Roses, but over time I have discovered many other artists I've grown to admire!
The lessons I provide cater to students of all ages and all skill levels. Some lessons are with individuals and other students prefer to take lessons as part of a small group of up to 3 people. I will tailor the lessons to suit the student covering styles of music and artists that they enjoy to listen to and help them achieve their guitar playing goals.
As a passionate musician who has played and performed for many years, my ultimate goal is to help you achieve your guitar playing dreams. Making it fun and interesting in a relaxed environment along the way. Whether this be to learn as a hobby or you're hoping to take to the stage, I look forward to playing a part in your guitar playing days to come!
Easy to find location, not too far from the Epsom Premier Inn North.
The lessons are held in a dedicated studio based down Fairfield Way, Epsom, KT19 0EF. There is on-street parking available outside and regular spaces!
