David Jobson is a professional guitar teacher offering high-quality lessons to students of all ages.
Hello! My name is David and I am a professional guitat tutor located in Leicester.
I offer high quality online guitar tuition using Zoom.
I now offer Zoom guitar lessons - learn from the comfort of your own home.
I teach both young learners and adults in a wide range of styles and techniques.
I offer tuition in a wide range of genres including Rock, Pop, Folk & Classical.
In-person lessons will start up again form the 7th of September with distancing, facemasks and sanitiser at the door.
My lessons are built around my student's goals. I will ensure we set realistic targets in theory, exercise and song work. I teach both half-hour lessons and hour-long lessons.
I would recommend my half-hour lessons for both young learners & for those who prefer to learn in small doses.
I would recommend my hour-long lessons for all ages who have the drive to learn and improve as well as being able to put in practice at home.
'My son (aged 13) has started guitar lessons with David and found them very enjoyable (and informative). Importantly David makes the lesson fun and is always encouraging which is very important. I would highly recommend David, so much so, that I am thinking of having lessons myself.'
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.
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.
The majority of my lessons take place from my home studio teaching space based on in the LE2 area of Leicester - not far from Leicester racecourse.
IMy teaching place is nicely ventilated and I provide a hand-sanitizer at the entrance.
This is a great place to learn guitar because it is a relaxed and calming environment & I have all the necessary equipment to conduct the lessons.
It is also very accessible by public transport. Simply take the 31 or 31A Sapphire or the X7. My full address will be disclosed upon the booking of your first lesson.
Guitar Shops Leicester:
For guitarists based in Leicester the closing of Sheehans Music in early 2017 was a surprise. A music store that had served so many of us over the years with equipment, repairs, and advice. The hole left by losing one of the cities leading music stores is noticeable. That said Leicester is lucky still to have several great music stores that guitarists of all abilities can visit.
Intrasound Music, can be found at 70 Narborough Road, Leicester, LE3 0BR and has a huge array of guitar equipment from leading manufacturers such as Orange, PRS, G&L, Cort, Peavey, Electro-Harmonix, Yamaha, Crafter & Tanglewood. The store has some great beginner guitar packages for under £150, ideal for beginner guitarists.
MH Music, based out in Market Harborough, at 7 St. Mary's Road LE16 7DS boasts a great range of guitars - including Fender Squire, G&L, Gibson, Gretsch and ESP models ideal for beginner guitarists upwards. As an intermediate or advanced player you can pick up a fantastic used guitar from MH Music.
Music Courses in Leicester:
For more advanced musicians undertaking further education might well be a great next step to further your career.
Academic institutions like Leicester College and University of Northampton are able to offer courses to help you gain the right qualifications for your professional CV - with the later doing a Popular Music (Joint Honours) BA/BSc that is well known within the industry for its high-quality tuition. Either of these courses will really help you get a foothold in the industry.
Leicester College is a great place if you are inexperienced when it comes to the music industry and performing. Here you will learn the necessary skills to go on to a degree or get straight into the music industry. They also offer a sound technology course if you are interested.
