My name is Nora Bite and I am a professional guitarist/composer living in London city with more than 20 years of experience in teaching and playing. Currently, I play more jazz than other styles, but I have played as a flamenco guitarist for many years, as a session musician and in various pop, rock, African music, Brazilian, funk and blues bands – so I can cover a huge range of styles in our guitar lessons.
I also played classical guitar for years before turning to a flamenco style of guitar playing. I have travelled around Europe with different bands/projects and have even played with Amy Winehouse, as well as many other less known names. I am currently leading and composing for my jazz trio, plus running a weekly jazz jam.
I have experience in teaching young kids (from 5 years old upwards) and also prepare students for grade exams both classical and rock guitar. I am more than happy to teach adults just as their hobby, though adults too are welcome to do grades! I can also help students who want to improve their music reading, theory or jazz improvisation. I am passionate about teaching and always tailor my guitar lessons to each of my student's needs and interests.

"I am delighted to have the opportunity to offer my strongest recommendation for Nora Bite as a first-class jazz musician and guitar teacher based in East London. As a full-time musician, Nora has the rare ability to both inspire, excite and stretch her student's ability, through her focused tuition.
Nora takes the time to fully understand her students playing goals and goes on to develop innovative strategies to help them develop their playing. Her inspiration is contagious and I feel as though I have benefitted tremendously from her encouragement and highly developed and flexible teaching style. I have no hesitation in recommending her to any aspiring guitarist looking to reach new heights of playing." – Simon Childs, Student
