Personal Description:

My name is Bobby . I am a highly qualified guitar teacher with over 30 years of professional playing and teaching experience. I currently teach from my home in Letchworth Garden City and remotely, via Skype.

As a touring session musician, I have performed with artists such as Brian May, Sir Cliff Richard (a position I still hold), Olivia Newton-John and Bonnie Tyler.

I have toured the USA, Canada, South America, Europe and The Middle East extensively, with Cliff Richard, Brit Floyd, The Australian Pink Floyd Show and The Classic Rock Show. My theatre work includes playing guitar for the hit Queen show We Will Rock You in London’s West End, Zurich, Stuttgart and Vienna.  

I have performed at many prestigious venues – including numerous appearances at London’s Royal Albert Hall, The O2 Arena and Wembley Arena; Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Colorado; The Greek Theater, Nokia Theater and Gibson Amphitheater in Los Angeles; The Fillmore and The Warfield in San Francisco; The Bell Centre, Montreal and headline slots at Glastonbury and Isle Of Wight festivals.

My TV appearances include ITV’s The National Lottery Show, This Morning and Loose Women, as well as appearances on PBS in the United States. I have also performed live on BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 4 and WDVE, Pittsburgh.

I have recorded in some of the world’s best known studios, including Abbey Road. My studio sessions include work with the late composer Michael Kamen, Westlife, The Lighthouse Family, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa and BA Robertson.

Tutoring Experience:

Initially self-taught, I went on to study privately with top UK tutor, Phil Hilborne and later, acquired certificates in Blues and Rock Guitar from Berklee College Of Music.

As a guitar tutor, I have given private tuition for decades, and have taught in many schools and colleges in the UK, for companies including Hertfordshire Music Service. I also currently teach guitar for Hertfordshire College Of Music and ABRSM. In 2010, I co-founded the guitar tuition website, FretHub, In April 2018, I launched “Absolute Blues Guitar” – an immersive online blues tuition course. I hold an up to date DBS certificate.

Tutoring Approach:

I teach all ages and levels, from absolute beginners to experienced players. I can cover all styles of music, although I have a real passion for blues, rock and classic rock - Check out my video for a free, intermediate level, blues guitar lesson.

I have a down-to-earth, friendly and patient approach to teaching and I always ensure that my students have fun while they learn. I am a dedicated tutor and many of my students have gone on to become professional musicians.

Whether you aspire to perform at a professional level, or if you simply want to play for fun, I can help you achieve your goals.
