I teach my pupils from my home teaching space located just off the A6, near Leicester racecourse in LE2 – it is a great place to learn to play the guitar with great transport links and all the equipment we need for the lessons.

I am a qualified music teacher, having gained a Music Degree from Brunel University and more recently a Level 3 Award in Education and Training (QCF). I have over 20 years experience in the music industry which includes touring, writing, composing and many more. I’ve also taught in the school system in both London and the Midlands.
I have a simple approach to my lessons. That is to make sure my students learn the music they want to learn. I feel as well as learning all the groundworks of theory and chord structure, it is very important that my students learn the music that they are interested in. With this approach, we can make very achievable targets to improve your guitar playing faster.
Beginner students are more than welcome to come for lessons. As are more advanced students. Regardless of your level, I will create a lesson plan that suits your needs and will ensure quick progression in your playing. For any more information, please send me an email or call me using the information below.
Lessons & Prices
My lessons are built around my student’s goals. I will ensure we set realistic targets in theory, exercise and song work. By making sure we use the correct technique I believe we can improve all three previously mentioned aspects very quickly.
I believe it is really important to make sure the lessons are driven by my student’s musical preferences. This means that we will learn the music and acts that you enjoy and wish to learn. Taking this into account and with a solid grounding of theory, I have seen many of my students progress from beginner to intermediate players in no time at all.
I welcome students of all abilities. For my beginner students, I will make sure we approach the lessons with patience but attention to technique, making sure you don’t develop any bad habits. If you happen to be a more advanced student and have a certain goal in mind, I can most definitely help you also.
I charge £15 per half hour/£30 per hour for lessons taught at my home teaching space. If you have any more questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Yes, I have a wide range of experience teaching students of all ages. I am able to help students as young as 9 years old to learn to play the guitar. For younger students, I would recommend taking a 1/2 hour lesson each week. This helps to develop the knowledge and the technical skills week on week at a pace that is enjoyable and rewarding for the student.
I teach all styles in both electric and acoustic guitar. I can also provide tuition for students interested in music production.
Beginners are more than welcome to attend my lessons, I have many students who started as beginners and are now progressing to an intermediate stage of playing and beyond. With the right course of lessons and some good practice as a student you won’t stay a beginner guitar student for long.
