1/2 Hour Lessons


I would recommend my half-hour lessons for young learners under the age of 12 and for those who want to learn at a steady pace or perhaps have a busy life outside of learning guitar.

1 Hour Lessons


My hour lessons are my most popular option. They are best suited to those with a real drive to progress as quickly as possible. I recommend a lesson once a week.

About Your New
Guitar Teacher

Friendly, helpful and focused on helping you to rapidly learn how to play the guitar.

I have been playing the guitar for over 40 years now, having spent time gigging, touring and recording at the very highest level for many years. I have written and performed music for computer games, adverts, pit work, live shows and session work. I have even played on the We Will Rock You stage show in the West End.

I have also taught in further education and worked with youth organisations, providing expert guitar tuition. I have vast experience with recording packages, Grade 8 reading and writing and can prepare students for any musical examinations, including the Rock School examinations.

I am an expert in teaching any style of guitar, from beginner to advanced level, and have experience of working with a very wide age group. You are never too young or too old to learn the guitar. To book your first lesson or simply find out more about my guitar lessons don't hesitate to get in touch

I love to make sure that my lessons are always enjoyable for all of my students. I firmly believe that to learn something properly you should enjoy learning it and always be in a positive enviroment.

Local Guitar Teacher Tips:

Music Shops in Portsmouth:

There is a wide range of music shops on offer in Portsmouth. One of my favourite for guitar equipment would be PMT Portsmouth on Fitzherbert Spur, PO6 1TT. This is a great general music store with a wide variety of everything you will need as a guitarist

If you are looking to buy a guitar then the obvious choice would be Guitar Centre on Highland Road, PO4 9EZ. In my opinion, this would be the best store to go to if you are looking to buy a guitar. They have a huge range of acoustics and electrics to suit every price range.

If you are looking for something a bit smaller and a bit more local then I would recommend Street Level on Albert Road, PO5 2SQ. This is a small shop but an extremely friendly place that again have a great selection of equipment and instruments.


Music Courses in Location:

If you want to take your learning or pursuit of music to a further level then Portsmouth has a wide range of options available to you. If you want to take a degree styled music course then the obvious choice would be the University Of Portsmouth who have an extremely extensive music department and offer a great Music, Technology course.

For those who prefer another option then Portsmouth College has some great music performance courses which concentrate on the performing aspect of playing and getting you ready for the music industry.

Lastly, if you are interested in joining and becoming involved with the local music scene then Portsmouth Music Academy has some great opportunities to perform live and join the local music scene. They even have a Ukulele jam night!
