Music Lessons in Edinburgh

I am a skilled, calm and professional guitar tutor based in Edinburgh. I’ve been studying the guitar for fifteen years, and completed the BA (Hons) Popular Music course at Edinburgh Napier University in 2014, graduating with a 1st Class Honours degree. I am PVG (Protecting Vulnerable Groups) certified; proof can be provided upon request. I am also a composer and music producer.

Tutoring Experience

I am the most frequently and highest rated guitar tutor in Edinburgh on FreeIndex. Some of the reviews are written below from current and past students.

“I’ve been having lessons for the best part of a year now and can’t praise Jake enough! He’s a fantastic tutor- relaxed and patient but with bags of enthusiasm! He uses prepared songs to teach from so every lesson is fun and interesting- the songs covered are really varied and he’s happy to take requests too. I sometimes need to move my lesson around and he’s as flexible as he possibly can be which I really appreciate.” – Katie.

“From a complete beginner a few months ago I have made great progress thanks to Jake’s guitar lessons and I would highly recommend him as a teacher.
Jake’s lessons are always well prepared and use modern rock\pop songs to teach various techniques and theories to keep them interesting. Jake is very patient, which is ideal for beginners and is also great at keeping you motivated to keep practicing and playing.” – Scott.

“My son absolutely loves his lessons with Jake. I was initially sceptical that my son would make any progress as he had not previously demonstrated any particular musical aptitude. He has however become quickly competent and is growing in confidence. I have been very impressed with Jake and his ability to teach a very distracted and hyperactive 9 year old.” – Lucie.

“Jake has been my guitar teacher for almost six months now, and I’ve been enjoying the lessons thoroughly. He’s got amazing talent and knows exactly what he’s talking about – theory (scales, modes), technique, improvisation etc. He’s able to teach all of that in an interesting way. He’s also very flexible and keen to either recommend a lesson subject or ask me what I’d like to learn instead. He’s also very friendly and easy to talk to, so the lessons just fly by. Overall, can’t recommend him enough!” – Lukasz.
