Learn to play the guitar with professional teacher and guitarist Simon Stephenson.
Hello! My name is Simon Stephenson and I am a professional guitar tutor located in Hanoi.
I offer personalised guitar lessons in the Hanoi area.
I like to make sure every lesson you take is of the highest quality.
I currently specialise in teaching teenagers and adults & I have vast experience in doing so.
I teach a wide range of genres & like to make sure I am always open to all genres that you would like to learn.
I teach both acoustic and electric. Remember to let me know what your preference is.
Affordable guitar lessons created to your specifications in a wide range of genres.
Half hour lessons are usually suited to those who want to learn little but often. I find that many students prefer this way of learning and I would recommend 2 half-hour lessons per week to see some really great progress.
My one-hour lessons are by far my most popular option. I would recommend this option for anyone who wants to see some good progress over a few months. One lesson per week should be enough to see some good progress.
'Simon gives you a lot to work on, a big variety of styles and techniques.'
'Simon’s guitar playing was a revelation to everyone who heard him, and his range of styles was remarkable.'
I am an experienced guitarist who has been achieved a PGCE in Secondary Education Music and have worked as a secondary school music teacher. Previously I also achieved a BMUS in Folk and Traditional Music.
The most important thing when learning the guitar is to enjoy yourself. Because of this, I like to make sure all of my lessons are really enjoyable for all of my students.
My lessons are primarily focused on adults and teenagers because this is the age group I have the most experience in working with. Whatever your needs, I will make a lesson plan that suits.
I have performed all over the UK and Europe and are an exponent of the acoustic fingerstyle guitar technique as well as other styles. I will draw upon this experience to make sure your lessons are of the highest quality.
I currently teach from a studio located on 71, Tan Ap, Ba Dinh, Hanoi. This is a great place to learn to play because you can really feel comfortable whilst learning. For more information about how to get to my studio please mention it in your email.

There are a wide range of music courses available in Hanoi if you are looking to study music further. Here are some of the best options.
The most obvious option would be The Hanoi Conservatory of Music. Here you can study a wide range of musical options as well as taking your musical education into further education. You can pursue everything from musical performance all the way to general musical studies & anything in between.
The other option in the area would be the United Nations School of Hanoi. Here you can learn a wide range of subjects including music. This particular school is more suited to young learners who would be looking for a basic introduction to music.
