Personal Description:

I've been playing guitar as a semi-professional for over 45 years, combining working as a session player and teacher with a career in advertising. Please note that despite trying to update the details shown on my profile, my name is in fact Harry , not Paul, and I live in Newton Abbot in Devon.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching regularly since I was a university student back in the 70s, and I still take the same immense pride in seeing my students bloom and progress, whether it's a complete novice developing natural skills and unlocking a world of musical discovery, or an advanced player whose ability has been stuck on a plateau being inspired to take his or her performance to another level.

Tutoring Approach:

I am happy to teach all levels of guitar to all ages of players from my house in Newton Abbot. Although I specialise in all kinds of fingerstyle acoustic guitar, I also play and teach electric guitar, and my primary emphasis is on getting my students confident and playing the songs that they enjoy as quickly as possible, supported by just the right amount of informal foundation theory to give them an understanding of how music works. Typically, the kind of study pieces I choose to work on would include a mix of songs and instrumentals, offering the widest possible scope of tunes from the Beatles, James Taylor and Led Zeppelin to jazz standards and classical 'party pieces'. I don't teach music for grades or exams - I just aim to pass on the joy of playing combined with the ability to play by ear. The proof of the pudding is that so many of my students from over the years are still in contact with me, still loving the relaxational effect of picking up their guitar every day and playing just for the sheer fun of itΒ…
