Personal Description:

‘Hello, I'm Simon and I'm here to help you take your playing to the next level.

I am a friendly and professional guitar teacher with over 10 years teaching experience. I teach all age groups, all abilities and a wide range of music styles.’

Simon started learning the electric guitar at age 12 after seeing the music video for 'Can't Stop' by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. In the following years he also took up the acoustic guitar, bass, ukulele and joined his first band in 2005. Playing in bands for more than half of his life has given Simon the ability to create a relaxed and supportive atmosphere for his pupils.

Tutoring Experience:

Simon is an experienced and patient teacher. Every lesson is personalised to suit each pupil's playing level and musical tastes to help them achieve their individual goals.
I began giving private guitar lessons in 2013 in London. Here I tutored a diverse clientele offering a range of teaching material and delivering fantastic learning experiences to my students.
I have been based in Bristol since March 2016 and I have been enjoying teaching in and around the area.

Tutoring Approach:

Simon understands that the best way to learn anything is to make it fun. This is why he has so much success with building up the confidence of his students and helping them surpass their wildest expectations.
