Personal Description:

I have played guitar for 23 years, and been a semi professional guitar player for 17 of those years, during this time I have travelled all over Europe playing shows and recording albums in professional recording studios. I now work as a full time musician and teacher.

Tutoring Experience:

I was in a professional training position for 11 years, and have been teaching music for 6 years (1 year full time).

Tutoring Approach:

Your first lesson is free, with no commitment to carry on afterwards.

I can teach any level of guitar player, from beginner to advanced. I can teach music theory or just the practical elements of guitar playing. It's entirely up to you.

I am keen, friendly, patient, and willing to work at any pace, in any style.

In the first lesson we will determine your preferred styles and inspirations, and talk about what you want to achieve and how soon you want to achieve it. We will determine your current level, how much time you can commit, and agree on goals that fit your requirements and ability. We will then set up a file and plan the following lesson and if appropriate I'll give you some homework to prepare for the next lesson.

The next lesson we will get to work, we will follow an agreed structure and break the lesson down into chunks that cover everything you want to learn. We will learn at whatever pace you like, and we will regularly review your progress. I don't like to waste time in lessons (unless you want to for some reason) so we will spend 5 minutes planning the next lesson so we know what we are doing and can get straight to work.

In between lessons you can contact me any time by phone or email and I'll be more than happy to offer advice and tuition in addition to the lessons free of charge. I am trying to gain experience, so the more you demand of me the better… I can also show you how to find resources online and filter out the good information from the bad information so you will be able to teach yourself between lessons.

The focus will be all about you, and what you want to learn. I will listen to the music you want to be able to play, learn it myself and teach it to you. I will keep a file on your progress and agree goals with you and we will monitor and review your progress regularly. I will guide you on how to become the guitar player you want to be.
