Testimonials:

'My son has been learning the electric guitar with George for the last two years and has made excellent progress, in just under two years he has achieved a distinction and merit for his grade 1 and 2 exams respectively. Lessons are productive but also fun. George is encouraging and always suggests how to improve techniques positively. He constantly praises good work too'. - Priti (parent)

'I have been having lessons with George for the past year or two and really enjoy his lessons. He is very professional in his tutoring and makes the lessons very enjoyable, with the focus purely on the learner. He provides lots of advice and tips on how to improve your technique as a guitar player not only during the lesson but also when you are practising on your own'. - Scott, student

'Great guitar tutor, lessons are thorough, well thought and most importantly enjoyable!' - Jake, student

'I have been having lessons with George for just over a year now and have thoroughly enjoyed them. He always makes the lesson's fun and engaging and have learnt far more than I ever could have done on my own! I look forward to my lesson each week would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone wishing to either start learning the guitar or just looking to improve on their current ability' - Jim, student

'Decided to learn the guitar in my mid thirties. George explains everything extremely well and makes the lessons interesting and fun. Would highly recommend to anybody interested in playing the guitar as George themes the lessons around your own music tastes'. - Dave, student

"I am a 52 year old that has been playing (in a fashion) guitar since i was 14 years old. I have been having Guitar Lessons with George for approximately 1 year and have found vast improvements in my guitar playing ability. George is very professional, and very versatile in different styles of guitar paying and also makes learning enjoyable". - Barry, student

Using my experience and knowledge in guitar technique, live performance and music theory, I can help students to learn their favourite songs, play in their favourite styles or acquire their grades - especially useful to help compliment the study of music at school, college or university. I can help you to maximise your potential as a guitarist in Rock, Pop, Metal, Jazz, Country, Classical styles and more!

My lessons are taylor-made for my students to ensure they receive the best tuition for their guitar playing as possible, with extra materials supplemented throughout the course of learning such as feedback reports, lesson plans and practice logs.
