Personal Description:

Available in person and online, with fees ranging from £10 to £25 and lower fees for complete beginners (please see below for details)


Since 2010 I have been a self-taught guitarist and singer, performing at a variety of events and constantly jamming with new musicians and discovering new bands. I was the frontman and manager of a jam/cover band from 2014 to 2016. I am currently the frontman of Stitch in Time and professionally known as Seth Taylor.

My influences are diverse, although centered around rock, indie and the associated genres. I'm very open minded. In music, I look for originality, creativity and intensity, not a specific style. For that reason, I try to inspire my students to put what I teach them to good use in their own personal way.

Tutoring Experience:

Since early 2015 I have been a private, self-employed guitar tutor. I have been teaching students whose musical interests range from pop and classic rock to trash metal. My students either pursue guitar as a hobby or a creative outlet, writing songs or performing in bands.

As of 2021 I am also teaching bass!

Tutoring Approach:

Face-to-face lessons are 60 minutes long. Online lessons can also be done in two 30-minute sessions if justified. I will provide you with notes and video material after every lesson and help you organize your practice time.

Beginners and fresh starters will get a good overview and a strong foundation of applicable skills. I keep things simple. You will get to enjoy what you learn very soon. Technique and repertoire/performance are equally as important. I also do songs of your choice.

Intermediate/Advanced guitarists have the chance not only to learn new concepts, but to fix past mistakes and gain confidence in their playing. No aspect of your playing will be ignored.

With the knowledge and skills gained from my lessons you should be able to tackle any genre you wish at a stage-ready level.

My rates are:

- £25 if I travel to you
- £15 if you travel to me (guitar provided)
- £10 if you travel to me (complete beginner)

- £20 if I travel to you
- £12.50 if you travel to me
- £10 if you travel to me (complete beginner)

- £25 for advanced
- £20 for intermediate
- £15 for beginners
- £10 for complete beginners


Online lessons can be done long-term on request. Otherwise, only when either one of us can't attend in person.

I am currently teaching online for a fee of £10 for complete beginners and £15/£20 for beginner/intermediate students. This includes a one-hour lesson and 30/60 minutes of prep time. I am providing fresh written and video material and even custom videos (for instance for songs you may want to learn).

Why choose online?
- because what would otherwise be travel time will be invested in preparing specific material for your lessons.
- because there is no limit to what you can learn online. Additional offline video material is provided to help give you the best picture and sound quality.
- I have high-speed internet, a full HD camera and if call quality is poor on our first lesson we can run tests free of charge until we fix things.
