LESSON SPACES AVAILABLE FROM SEPTEMBER ’22 –
I currently have some lesson spaces available from September ’22 but these spaces usually get filled very quickly so don’t hesitate to get in touch if you are interested and I can answer any questions you may have.
Whether you are a complete beginner or you have been teaching yourself guitar for some time now and made the decision that you want to get serious, now is a good time to get in touch for some private guitar lessons. Very often guitar players will approach me because they either want to get it right from the beginning or they have been working things out for themselves for some time but have come to the point where they have hit a brick wall and need some expert knowledge and advice. This is where I come in.
But why me you may ask? Well, I have been teaching and playing guitar professionally for more than thirty years, I have had my playing and my own music used for radio ads, computer games, online slot machines and a rollercoaster ride as well as other media presentations and videos. I have released three solo albums to date, two of which feature the talents of Primal Scream and Gary Moore’s drummer Darrin Mooney, and have taught in schools, colleges, and more private lessons than I could possibly count. In short, I know my stuff and have had a lifetime’s experience knowing what is required to become a complete guitarist. I am the ideal candidate to show aspiring guitar students how they can reach their full potential and become fully accomplished guitarists themselves.
To get an idea of the of the nature of my tuition I have listed the areas of study that I cover from beginner right through to advanced though these are not set in stone and I am happy to tailor your lesson plan according to your individual needs.
