Personal Description:

My name is Dave and I am based in the North East of England and teach from home in Whickham, Gateshead (not far from the Metro Centre). I teach most styles:- rock, indie, blues, folk, country, jazz etc etc… and I am qualified to Grade 8 level in both electric guitar (practical), acoustic (practical) and popular music theory. I am also professionally qualified to Diploma level with the London College of Music (Dip LCM in guitar teaching). I can also teach students through the Registry of Guitar Tutors (RGT) exams. Please contact me to discuss your requirements, I look forward to meeting you.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching over 10 years. I taught regularly as an active musician whilst in the Royal Air Force, whilst I obtained my qualifications and I have now relocated back to my home in the North East where my quota of students continues to grow.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a large tuition room with a vast range of guitars and amps, together with a PC, programmed with many apps and programs to make learning as easy as possible. It's a very relaxed environment which I am sure you will find comfortable, adding to the enjoyment of your learning experience. Before teaching I played in many different bands, spanning over 25 years. I still perform with other musicians as often as possible and am still active with my current band. Whether you are just starting out and want to learn a few of your favourite songs, or perhaps you as the student want to take your playing to a higher level and want to try some formal exams, I can help you achieve your goals. I tailor my lessons to suit the individual and can teach a combination of practical and theory. Most importantly though, my aim is to give my students a high quality service, as the most important thing is making them happy with their experience.
