Ben offers a FREE first / introductory lesson!
Hi, my name is Ben! I am a professional musician and educator from Exeter.
- I offer online lessons with studio quality, low latency sound.
- I have 7 years of teaching experience.
-I teach all abilities!
- I have a first class degree in music performance.
I strongly believe that I can transform anyone into an exceptional guitar player.
Having spent a great deal of the last 14 years obsessing over the instrument, I am confident in being able to teach anything my students want to learn. I have previously taught a wide range of abilities, from complete beginners to people wanting to study music performance at university and beyond. I have taught a range of genres, from Jazz to rock - my lessons are all about learning the music you love.
If you are interested in taking grades, I can teach any of the standard exam boards at grades 1-8. Music theory, notation, tab and guitar technique are all avenues we can explore in lessons. However, I find it most effective if these concepts are learnt while learning music you enjoy. I never like to see anyone confused at the end of a lesson - I would rather overrun free of charge and ensure that you understand the material.
My lessons are extremely flexible - I can quickly transcribe and teach your favourite songs and solos. I have an extensive knowledge of Folk, Rock, Jazz, Blues, Metal, Pop, Fusion - Previously I've transcribed and taught everything from Andy Mckee to Guthrie Govan!
Before our first lesson, I will ask you for a playlist of 5-10 songs that have guitar parts you really enjoy on them. This allows me to hone in on what your goals are on the instrument - every lesson will be relevant to the style you want to play. We will then work through learning these parts, addressing any theoretical or technical issues along the way. By doing this, I will gain a good understanding of where the gaps in your knowledge are, and I will ensure that we work on them together.
No matter what level you are currently at on the instrument, I will provide the best environment for you to reach your potential. I try to maintain a relaxed yet focussed atmosphere - All of my students see fast improvements while enjoying the process of learning.
