Personal Description:

Hello! My name is Garrie and I'm a professional tutor in the West of Scotland area serving areas such as Glasgow, North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire, and Dunbartonshire.

I myself have played and studied the guitar for over 15 years, and in that time have developed a wealth of experience playing a variety of genres in a variety of contexts that I'm eager to pass to those with an interest in guitar music.

Tutoring Experience:

I have worked as a teacher in many contexts over the past decade - from teaching engineering honours degree modules at the Universities of Glasgow and Strathclyde, supervising Masters degree research and private tutoring in Mathematics, Physics, Computing and Engineering-related SQA qualifications to secondary school and college students.

I am currently the highest rated tutor for Maths, Physics and Engineering here on first tutors, with almost 40 5/5 star reviews - you can read them here:

More recently I have started to teach guitar and music, after having played and studied myself for over 15 years. My wealth of teaching experience prior to this means that my guitar students get access to the same high quality teachings methods as all students in other subjects.

Tutoring Approach:

Each individual student of mine has different goals, and different needs to achieve those goals. It is therefore my aim that tailor the material taught to the individual student, with them having a large say in the direction the tuition goes.

If you've never played guitar before, and just want to learn a few chords so you can jam along to your favourite Bob Dylan records, I will develop a program of teaching to get you there. If you've been playing for a while, but your playing is stuck in a rut, and you want to expand your ability to improvise, play by ear, expand your knowledge of music theory and apply it better, then I can develop a program for all that too. If you want something laid back and casual, that's no problem, and if you want something highly structured working towards exams and qualifications like Rockschool, that's no problem!

Whether you want to learn rock, metal, pop, punk, funk, jazz - I can help you!

In all cases the student will receive at least one hour per week of face-to-face tuition, online access to a wealth of teaching materials including song sheets, sheet music, technical exercises, songwriting exercises, etc, all together with a program of learning that suits their needs.
