My Mission

Rapidly Develop Your Guitar Playing

I am experienced teacher. Having played the guitar since young I have gained a huge amount of knowledge and experience. I would be delighted to pass this on to you.

I am a very friendly and patient teacher, I was a student once myself. So I understand the needs of a student and how to make our lessons relaxing and enjoyable. I help my students to learn by teaching them the songs that inspired them to pick up the guitar, blending this with technical exercises that help build the skills required to play guitar with confidence.

My Lessons

Electric & Acoustic Guitar Lessons

I teacher both electric and acoustic guitar to students of all learning abilities, including complete beginners. I also welcome young learners, from the ages of 6 years old and upwards to take lessons. I have developed a great course of foundation guitar lessons ideally suited for young learners to quickly progress on the guitar.

For adult learners my lessons give them the technical skill sets to master playing the music that they enjoy listening to. Core aspects of playing, whether rhythm, chord patters or picking, will be taught to ensure a student has a well rounded approach to playing the guitar.


£14 per 1/2 hour
£26 per hour

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

Beginners & Advanced Students Welcome

I welcome both beginners and advanced students. I will always make a lesson plan that fits your playing level.

My Experience as a Teacher

I'm a music teacher and gigging musician and I have worked in music education and the music industry since 2004. This has enabled me to build up a great amount of experience, as well as professional contacts over the many years, helping me to develop myself both as a guitarist and further as a music teacher.

I have taught a variety of instruments for several schools, music services, privately and for after school companies. These instruments/areas of study include guitar, piano, bass, vocals and music theory.

Alongside teaching, I have been an actively gigging musician both in the UK and overseas. I have played bass for Princess Cruises and worked as a resident guitar vocalist for TUI in Crete, and I have played countless weddings, corporate gigs, bars, restaurants, music festivals and events.

More About My Lessons

I feel it's very important to tailor my teaching to each student, dependent on their ultimate goals and desired outcomes for learning an instrument. I also strongly believe that it's important for my students to enjoy their lessons and get something out of it every week.

I teach with a student-focused approach, meaning I will create a tailored lesson plan based around your interests and goals. This means you can learn to play the guitar whilst learning the music you love.

If you want to achieve your musical goals in a relaxed and fun environment I am the teacher for you. I understand starting lessons can be daunting, but I assure you will be put at ease during our lessons and build a course of lessons aimed to help you succeed.

Frequently Asked Questions

My lessons are charged at £14 per half hour and £26 per hour for all students.

I teach my lessons from a dedicated teaching space located Whalley Road, Manchester, M16 8AH, just a few minutes drive from Stockport centre. I also offer online lessons for those students interested in taking lessons from the comfort of their own home.

I have experience teaching both adults and young learners. I recommend starting from age 6.

The frequency of lessons is entirely up to you. From experience I would recommend that weekly lessons are the best way to improve over a short time. This has to be combined with plenty of practice at home as well.

Lessons cancelled with less than 48 hours notice will still be charged full price.
