Through experience I have found that children and adults benefit from
learning as part of a group and with
individual lessons.
As part of a group you learn to keep
in time and your reading comes on
faster. Group lessons should include
group playing. Not individuals being
taught one after the other. This
should be done in an individual

I encourage parents to attend lessons with yonger children to aid progress at home. I teach both children and adults but the youngest children should
start to play would be 7. Lessons are taylored to your particular needs although I encourage all-round skills including note reading, tab, chords
and improvisation.

Group Lessons: These cost £8 per hour on a weekly basis. They include general musicianship, note reading, theory, tab reading, chord playing, guitar tuning instruction and group performance. These are for beginners to intermediate players.
Individual Lessons:These cost £30 per hour and are for those who want to study the guitar to a higher level, SQA exams, Rock School exams, Associated Board exams or one off lessons as needed/to enhance group lessons.

.I offer both group and individual lessons. I encourage group performance from the start. It encourages confidence and provides the fastest results for beginners and intermediate players.
Individual lessons are offered and taylored to your specific needs.
