Rory offers a FREE first / introductory lesson!
I'm a professional and experienced tutor of guitar, drums, mandolin and ukulele. I currently teach at Your Guitar Academy as well as privately. I have more than eight years teaching experience and over a decade’s experience playing music in professional performances in different cities around the world, including Seoul, Berlin and London.
I have a great love of all kinds of music, and I am experienced in playing many styles, from pop, rock and blues to classical, latin, soul, jazz, folk, metal and Balkan.
I have taught students of different ages and skill levels around the world, including South Korea, Berlin and London.
I began my career teaching English as a foreign language, and my wide experience in this field informs the approach I take to teaching an instrument. I was a full-time teacher in South Korea for three years and I taught English as well as the drums and guitar as a freelance tutor in Berlin for a year.
I conduct lessons to the highest standards. My 120-hour CELTA course and Berlitz teacher training, as well as my recent experience in a British Council accredited school in London mean I am familiar with many methods of successful teaching, assessment and feedback.
Lessons are available in guitar, drums, mandolin, ukulele and bass guitar.
In our first lesson, you’ll get an idea of what to expect from my course. I’ll learn a bit about you, what level you’re at and what you want to get out of the lessons. And most importantly, we’ll get you playing the instrument straight away.
In my opinion, the most important part of learning an instrument is to enjoy playing and be creative. I will tailor my lessons to your individual needs and tastes, and keep the right level of challenge in order to keep you steadily progressing.
Students of all ages, levels and abilities are welcome, including absolute beginners. If you’re not a beginner but you want to brush up on your playing, we’ll see where you’re at from the trial lesson. Feel free to get in touch if you have particular needs or interests.
To see the best progress, I recommend you take at least one lesson a week.
Normally, lessons are conducted in my home studio in N18 (just off the north circular and close to White Hart Lane). However, I am more than happy to come to you. If you do want lessons at your location, remember that you will need your own equipment (drum kit, guitar etc). Also, transportation costs including travel time and ticket fare must be taken into account.
Thanks and I look forward to meeting you soon!

I definitely recommend!
The stuff we practise both in lessons and what he sets me for homework are fun and motivates me to keep playing. None of my previous teachers were ever able to do that. He gives me specially made notes on what we have covered in each lesson for me to look at and practise, colourful and well laid out for a beginner like me who needs that. Each week progresses in a logical way where I understand how it's helping me take the next step. I can't recommend Rory highly enough!
Very much recommended.
