I teach from my home teaching space based on New Belvedere Close, Stretford (M32 0EG) in Manchester. It is an ideal place to learn to play the guitar, with great transport links from across the city in addition to all the equipment we need for our lessons.

I am a qualified guitar teacher, having gained a Foundation Degree in Pop Music and Performance from the University of Salford. I have achieved Grade 8 on the Electric Guitar (Rockschool) and Grade 8 for Music Theory (LCM). In addition, I am also an active musician, with over 10 years experience playing, performing and recording music.
I have a clear approach to teaching the guitar; that anyone can learn to play the guitar, as long as they are patient, focus on quality practice over quantity and have access to the right learning resources. I help my guitar students rapidly progress their learning by creating individually tailored courses of guitar lessons, suited to their individual learning needs. This includes incorporating many of the songs and bands that they enjoy listening to directly into the lesson content.
Beginner guitar students are welcome to come for lessons. Indeed, the majority of my students start off as beginner students before progressing onto more intermediate and advanced guitarists. I also teach younger learners from the ages of 8 upwards, as well as many adults. I would be delighted to help you to learn to play the guitar. To book your first lesson, or to find out more about how I can help you to learn to improve your guitar playing ability, simply get in touch by emailing me.
Lessons & Prices
My guitar lessons are goal focused, ensuring my students are progressing by reaching achievable targets that we set together. In terms of lesson content, that is driven by my student’s own musical preferences. After all, almost every student I have taught has been inspired to pick up a guitar by a band or a song that they like! Using my many years of teaching experience I am able to draw on a wide range of guitar exercises that I know will help my students improve technically. This is combined with providing a good grounding in music theory during my lessons. These three aspects; of core songs (selected with the student), tried and tested technical exercises and music theory, provide the basis of the content taught during my guitar lessons.
I welcome students of all abilities. While I specialise in teaching beginner guitar students, helping them to gain a good understanding of the basics of the guitar, I can also help intermediate and advanced guitarists progress. This is especially true for more experienced guitarists who feel that they are “stuck in rut” with their playing. Helping to re-energise a guitarist’s practice routine, providing them with new material to expand their guitar playing repertoire. I approach all my guitar lessons with patience, providing support and encouragement to my students.
I charge £17 per half hour / £25 per hour for lessons taught at my home teaching space in Stretford. To find out more about my professional guitar lessons here at Guitar Lessons Manchester don’t heistate to get in touch.
Having taught guitar for many years I am extremely fortunate to have some fantastic testimonials from my students. As a guitar tutor, it is a great feeling to see my guitar students progressing lesson to lesson. Especially as I help my students learn to play the songs that they listen to at home. This gives them a real buzz, knowing that they can start playing along with the music that inspired them to start playing the guitar in the first place.
I work hard to create a course of structured guitar lessons that help my students rapidly progress. These lessons incorporate guitar exercises that I have developed over my many years of teaching, alongside songs that my students want to learn. Indeed, this approach to teaching the guitar is something that Neil, an acoustic guitar student I teach, reflected upon; “whatever level you’re at if you’re looking for someone to help you progress in a structured way then give Dan a call”.
