Book lessons with professional guitar teacher Ben Gallagher.
Hello! I'm Ben Gallagher, a professional guitar teacher based in Winchester. I am an experienced Guitar teacher offering lessons in a wide range of styles.
I like to make sure my lessons are always fun and exciting for all of my students.
Although I have experience in teaching all ages, I am currently only offering lessons to adults (18+).
I teach both acoustic guitar and electric guitar in a wide array of styles.
If you wish, I offer the chance to take graded exams and I will also help you prepare for the exam.
Professional guitar lessons for all ages in the centre of Winchester.
My half-hour lessons are best suited to those who want to get a taster when it comes to learning the guitar or for those that prefer to learn in small doses.
My hour-long lessons are my most popular option and the option that I would recommend. This is because I believe this gives us enough time to cover lots of different aspects of your playing and I usually see quite fast progress with this length of lesson.
I am an experienced player and teacher who started playing 15 years ago when my brother bought an acoustic for himself and I couldn't wait to have a go. Since then, I've worked my way up to grade 7 with Trinity College London. I also have a strong passion for passing my knowledge to others.
I will always make every lesson with your wants and needs in mind. We will always learn the music that inspires you as I feel this helps keep the lessons as enjoyable as possible.
I am currently a mobile teacher which means that I will travel to you for your lessons. I feel this is very important because it means you will be learning from a comfortable environment. I currently offer lessons in Winchester and the villages within as well as in some part of Southampton. For more information check out the Location section. Alternatively, I also offer lessons via skype.
Whilst I teach, I write out notes and draw diagrams for you because I know what a pain it can be trying to remember what we went through together in the lesson. I also have printable resources for all aspects of learning that I provide as and when you're ready for them.
I am currently a mobile teacher which means that I will travel to your home for your lessons. I feel that this enables my students to learn from a familiar and comfortable environment. Generally, students who feel comfortable will make the best progress.
I currently offer lessons in the areas of Winchester (Kings Worthy, Harestock, Littleton, South Wonston, Sutton Scotney, Weeke, Winnall), Micheldever, Alresford, Sparsholt, Hursley, Twyford, Otterbourne, Colden Common, Chandler's Ford, Eastleigh and parts of Southampton.
I also offer lessons via facetime or skype if this is something you would like to pursue, please let me know.
Guitar Shops in Winchester:
Winchester is only a small place so sadly when it comes to options for music shops or guitar shops you are best travelling further out for more options. However, Here are my favourite picks.
If you ever need any guitar repairs or service of any kind then I would recommend Hayward Guitars. This is a great small place that offers amazing and fast repairs. you can find them on 38 Stockbridge Rd, Winchester SO23 7BZ.
Music Courses in Winchester:
Again like music stores we don't have many options when it comes to music courses however there are a few good options available in the area.
I would recommend The University Of Winchester if you are looking to pursue anything musical when it comes to further education. They have both music options and sound production options which are both great and interesting courses.
I would be delighted to help you to learn to play the guitar. Get in touch to find out more about my guitar lessons in Winchester.
