Private Guitar, Bass and Music Theory tuition 2006 - present
I began teaching privately, firstly at my own home then began visiting students’ homes teaching mostly children aged 10-15. The main instrument I teach is Guitar but I have also given Bass and Music Theory Lessons.
Clives Easy Learn Rock & Pop School 2007-2008
This was a franchise of a weekend/evening music school, which was based in Lemington (Newcastle West End) and Gosforth. I taught Guitar at both schools and was promoted to the position of head tutor. I was also called upon to cover Bass and Drum lessons due to other tutors absence. This franchise was disbanded in 2008 and so I took over the running of the Gosforth school.
Gosforth Weekend Music School 2008-2009
This was the result of my taking over the Gosforth branch of the old ‘Easy Learn’ Franchise. I personally took over all managerial responsibilities such as taking payments for sessions, paying staff and overheads, as well as teaching my guitar sessions.
My aim is to allow the students to develop at their own pace and focus on the areas that they are most interested in. I also provide guidance and advice on beneficial techniques for practice. Lessons are catered to all styles and skill levels. I teach RGT Electric and Acoustic Guitar grades to all levels and recommend taking the most appropriate of these courses once the basics of playing have been established.
