Personal Description:

My name is Galen I'm a full time guitarist. In the last few years of my career I've performed with a wide range of artists including the popular progressive metal act Slice The Cake.

I currently play lead guitar for a rock band called Hightown Parade who's new single Silhouette has been played on Planet Rock, Kerrang, and Scuzz TV, and I'm also the lead guitarist for a Prog Rock band called Azure.

I've got a BaHons in Professional Musicianship and I've got an up to date DBS certificate (formally CRB)

I can teach via Skype or from my dedicated teaching studio.

Tutoring Experience:

I've been teaching privately part time for 6 years.
I've taught a wide range of people, young to old, absolute beginners to professionals looking to improve certain aspects of their playing.

Tutoring Approach:

I don't like to teach to a syllabus. I take the student's personal goals and ability levels into account and plan and structure lessons to the individual.
I like to teach a methodical, problem solving approach to learning music. I strongly believe in the old adage that you should always strive to work smarter not harder.

I don't have a particularly dogmatic approach to teaching foundational things like fundamental technique, theory, and fretboard navigation but I do have a lot of knowledge of all of these things and like to cater the way I approach these topics to each individual student.

I am comfortable teaching most styles from country and reggae to jazz but I specialize in:


Whatever kind of music you're into, it's my job to help you improve as a guitarist through exploration of the stylistic idiosyncrasies of the music you love.

Whether your goals are to learn to play the songs you like or to work towards developing virtuoso technique I am happy to help you along your way.
