My Lessons
Lessons Tailored To You

My lessons are built around you. I want every student to be learning what they want to learn. If you just want to learn a few chords for an occasion or want to become the next Hendrix I can definitely help you achieve either.

I like to make sure we also have a good grounding in music theory so that you can understand what you are learning. It is also possible to learn graded exams if this is a route you wish to go down.

£12.50 per 1/2 hour
£25 per hour

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

Beginners & Advanced Students Welcome

Lesson Focus

Get Started

Learn how to hold a guitar, play chords and strum in a rhythm.

My Experience as a Teacher

I am an accomplished lead guitarist having started playing at the age of 7 and then went on to develop as a teenager playing live venues and open mic sessions from the age of 14. My exposure to live music and performing has given my Rock, Funk, Blues and Soul playing its own unique and natural style.

I have been closely tied with several Blues artists since an early age and as a result, have been given opportunities to play in large events such as local Blues and Folk festivals. I am a member of an up and coming blues band who are gaining in popularity having played larger venues and festivals this summer.

I have much experience in teaching guitar both to individuals and small groups, having been a private teacher and youth worker for a music company. Here I was able to develop and adapt my teaching style to cater to a broad range of people in order to bring out the best in each individual and help them to reach their potential.

Lessons Focus

Develop Your Skills

Learn how to bend strings, play scales and even improvise your own solos.

More About My Lessons

I have a natural, easy nature and recognise the importance of the individual and their specific learning requirements, be it beginner or advanced. I always look to make lessons interesting and fun whilst ensuring progression and development is maintained.

I can tutor students in both music performance and theory whether they are aiming towards achieving grades, preparing for recitals or auditions or simply playing the guitar for fun.

I am also a qualified teacher, having achieved a Distinctions in Trinity Grade 8 Rock and Pop Electric Guitar (88/100), an ABRSM grade 5 music theory (91/100?), A in A-level music with full marks in performance and a BA Music (First Class Honours) from The University of Southampton.
