Personal Description:

I am a guitar tutor based in Newport South Wales. I have been teaching guitar for about ten years in my spare time. I started the guitar lessons as a hobby but when I realised that quite a few people were starting to contact me about lessons I decided to turn this hobby into a part time business.

Tutoring Experience:

I have a teaching qualification (PGCE stage 2) and I spent a year running music workshops in two organisations: Newport College of Further Education and Newport Action for the Single Homeless. I started out with the classical guitar and spent five years studying this instrument with a teacher from the Trinity College of Music. In the last year I ran a series of evening classes at the Share Centre in Newport. I am flexible and adaptable as a teacher and can offer tuition in a range of styles from blues/rock and metal through to jazz and classical. I also offer tuition for acoustic and bass guitar and five string banjo.

Tutoring Approach:

I try to persuade each student that learning a small amount of theory will improve their playing potential. Theory of music helps people to improve their understanding of chord structures and the basics of rhythm and tempo. A lot of people who start out on the guitar wish to play their favourite tunes, but with a small amount of understanding chord theory, harmony and intervals they will, with the appropriate guidance and training, be able to work them out for themselves.
