George offers a FREE first / introductory lesson!
I began teaching at the age of 18, just before going to study at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. I honed my teaching skills whilst still a student myself and have since had many pupils, from children to middle aged people, with various interests and abilities. Coming from a classical background and having studied more contemporary styles including jazz, I can cater to whatever genre a student is interested in, whilst emphasising key fundamentals such as reading notation and basic harmonic understanding. Many of my older students have wanted to develop their technique just enough to be able to play through some pop songs, so I now consider myself quite adept at identifying aspects of a person's playing which when fixed can really elevate their playing. It's important to me that I make learning the guitar enjoyable as well as informative, so I try to make lessons as interactive and as fun as possible.
I have had various students in my home town of Scarborough and a few in Cardiff. Their ages have ranged from much younger than me to much older than me and although their abilities have varied, they have generally been around the beginner mark. I have Grade 8 distinction, grade 5 theory and a music GCSE and A level.
I enjoy teaching the guitar as I do playing. I find teaching to be a fulfilling and challenging experience. I aim to make learning the instrument as fun and creative as possible.
