Tutoring Approach:

Teaching Style
Lessons are built around each student’s individual requirements and needs.
Alan designs the guitar sessions and supporting materials around artists, songs and music selected by the student. This builds confidence and understanding and tends to be a more enjoyable way to learn.
This approach ensures that each student builds fundamental knowledge (e.g. scales and chords) whilst developing their practical playing skills.
Exams are optional and Alan uses guitar 'TAB' as part of the lessons so the student does not have to be able to read music!
