Personal Description:

My name is Vince. I have many years experience playing guitar and mandolin in bands, folk and ceilidh dance groups, churches and choirs.

I have an enhanced criminal records check updated annually, providing reassurance in my professional work with children and adults, including those with vulnerability and disability.

My taste in music includes folk, rock and blues, traditional Northumbrian and Celtic, Americana and music with a spiritual dimension.

I am experienced in various guitar and mandolin music styles and techniques as well as varied choice of instruments This includes finger style guitar playing including a developing ability in formal classical guitar playing… I sing in a men's folk choir as well as leading a small choir of my own. Therefore the ability to link development of singing and music-reading techniques to instrumental playing is another aspect of my interest and teaching capacity.

My musical skills continue to develop by completing further advanced guitar grades and by the teaching of my students. I successfully completed a Community Music facilitator's course at the Sage, Gateshead in 2012.

References and Feedback about all aspects of my music experience and teaching are available on request.

Tutoring Experience:


1. Teaching guitar and mandolin to adult and child beginner and intermediate level students.

2. Teaching both face to face in my home or yours and online tuition are both available.

3.I produce notes, videos and written exercises for all students to support lessons and at no extra cost… 4. Visual learning, music notation and tablature are tailor-made to the student's individual requirements and ability
5 .Teaching adult groups and pairs of beginner and experienced guitarists.

6.Facilitating and teaching harmony singing to a community choir, providing guitar accompaniment.

7. Teaching guitar to year 5 and 6 children in a local primary school on a sessional basis, 2002-2008.

8. Teaching a small group of intermediate level teenage guitarists in a small ensemble, 2007-10.

Tutoring Approach:

Music can be calming, creative and enjoyable at every stage in life!
For me it is a privilege and a pleasure to play and teach guitar and mandolin.
Bass guitar, ukulele and banjo tuition are also available.

Are you keen to learn and improve by:- casual lessons? specialized practice? by taking exams?

I will:- 1) agree individual goals with you
AND 2) help you to enjoy and develop your playing!
