I can teach a range of styles including folk, classical and rock, and can cater to a range of needs, whether you’re starting grades, want to learn to read music, understand scales/music theory, or want to just learn songs (or how to write them yourself!).

Tutoring Experience:

I have 3 years teaching experience, working freelance as a guitar teacher and also teaching students at Eric Linsey Music Ltd in London. I have experience teaching a range of ages from 5 yrs old to 75 yrs old.-

Tutoring Approach:

In the first lesson we will look at where you are at in terms of level, and find out what it is exactly you want to do. From then on I structure my lesson plans around making sure you get exactly what you want from the lessons, flexibly steering the course to suit your needs as you discover and find your playing style, be that to become a great folk finger-picker, a jazz improviser, a songwriter, a classical guitarist, a lead soloist or rhythm guitarist in a band, experiment with new styles, or if you want achieve grades, learn about music theory, to read music.
