My Mission

Enthusiastic and Relaxed Lessons

Music has always been one of the very few things in this world that makes sense to me. I'm a passionate music lover and guitar teacher and it is my goal to share this passion with others. I believe that studying and learning an instrument is akin to eating healthy and keeping fit, as such I take pride in offering the highest quality guitar lessons possible.

I am a very versatile teacher who loves all things music and wants to share these skills and abilities with you. I mainly teach my students by teaching them the songs they love by the artists they enjoy. I feel this is a very important part of keeping interest and having fun whilst overcoming the challenges we all face when learning a new instrument.

My Lessons

All Genres and Styles Welcome

I really enjoy teaching in various different styles and genres of music. I find that doing this often keeps me on my toes and pushes me to get a better understanding of a genre that a student is interested in. Having worked with so many different students now, I feel comfortable and confident in teaching just about any style or genre. No matter which direction you would like to take the lessons in, my lessons cater for all.

I also like trying to help my students discover new music to help keep them inspired. It's important to stay driven and motivated when learning a new instrument as a lack of inspiration is sometimes a difficult thing to overcome. My main personal style of choice is Spanish Flamenco, and I was fortunate enough to live in Spain for 2 years however I can teach any genre such as Pop, Jazz, Folk, Classical etc.

Prices:


£11.50 per 1/2 hour
£23 per hour

Lessons are pay-as-you-go, weekly, fortnightly or as suits you.

My Experience as a Teacher

I have been playing and teaching the guitar for a long time now and in this time I have worked with so many students from all different age groups and different backgrounds. This has allowed me to grow in to a more versatile teacher and I take pride in being able to cater for students no matter what they want from the lessons.

I understand that when working with younger learners my teaching style and approach needs to be different than that of adult learners and as such I will always tailor my lessons to suit the needs of that student. I will always work with you every step of the way to try and make this journey as fun and exciting as I possibly can.

Currently, I also am an active musician who regularly plays and performs live too alongside my teaching. Having this real world experience has taught me a lot of things about being a musician that you can't learn from a text book. I like to try and offer insight in my lessons, not only on the instrument but also what it takes to be an all round better musician.

More About My Lessons

I am currently studying for my Popular Music Production and Performance degree at Solent University. In the past I have also received Flamenco guitar tuition from one of the finest contemporary Flamenco guitar players, Augustine del la Fuente. The things he taught me have proven invaluable in helping me grow as a musician and now I can pass this on to you.

Most of my students tend to take a one hour lesson with me each week. I find that this is usually the best way to approach the lessons to ensure steady and consistent progress. I would tend to recommend half an hour lessons for younger students just to help keep their interest throughout the lesson. Together we can help you become the guitar player you have always dreamed of.

Rather than teaching my students a song by learning note by note from a page, I try to encourage my students to explore music in a more free and personal way. This teaching approach allows the individual to progress in a more creative manner, and this will help them discover their own sound and will result in a more original outcome in the end.
