Piano, Electric and Acoustic Guitar, Music Theory Many styles taught. I generally teach beginners/early intermediate on piano and can teach guitar pieces up to grade 8 standard. It is best that we meet first to give us both an idea of how I can help you. On piano I teach most popular styles as well as classical and jazz. I will also teach students who have a keyboard, but will teach them to play piano, so better to upgrade to an acoustic or digital piano as soon as able. On guitar I teach rock, metal, blues, acoustic, pop, fingerpicking etc. Most modern styles. I teach the early theory grades within a piano lesson if required and occasionally within a guitar lesson.
