Personal Description:

Hi there! I’m Robbie, a professional guitar & piano teacher and university music graduate. I graduated with a first class degree and was also the recipient of 2/4 of the prizes, including the prize for best recital. I have since become a full-time teacher and performing musician.

I've been told by my students that I'm "super friendly", "really easy to understand", "a very funny guy" and "excellent at exaggerating quotes"…

I am happy to travel to you. I'm also set up and available for Zoom or Skype if you'd prefer lessons online! Also, if you're interested, you can listen to me here: **Web Address Removed**

Tutoring Experience:

I have been a guitar teacher for 10+ years, teaching students of all ages (7+) and abilities. I also have experience in teaching students with disabilities.

I've been performing music for over 10 years now, in all sorts of different bands and groups: rock bands, funk bands, jazz ensembles, big bands, theatre pits – you name it! I currently run a wedding and function band in which I play 8-string hybrid guitar and sing (sounds a bit crazy, I know!) and travel around the UK. I also have a lot of experience with recording and mixing music, having done this a lot for band promotional material.

Tutoring Approach:

I love playing the guitar and learning about music, and I think this carries over into my lessons. I'm able to teach in any style or genre, though I specialise in rock, pop & jazz. I tend to fill lessons with as much musicality as possible; we'll focus on whatever you enjoy playing! Also, I have achieved Rockschool Grade 8 and have experience teaching students doing Rockschool grades.

I keep lessons as practical, relaxed and straightforward as possible. By the end of every lesson, my students always have something fun and musical to practice until the next lesson. After every lesson, I film a short recap video of what was covered, so the student has the perfect audio/visual reference. Sometimes, these will be "play-along" videos, where I might record a whole song for students to practice along to. I also provide visual resources such as chord diagrams and song sheets, which I'll email to you after the lesson - you can view an example of this under the "Tutor Resources" section, for the song Fields Of Gold.
