Js Music School Ltd specializes in teaching people to Enjoy Learning Essential guitar.
Revolutionary ways of teaching in order to sift out a lot of the non 'essential' elements of music teaching.

Making all aspects of learning fun e.g:

- Sight reading. Using programs such as Guitar Pro in lessons to make learning songs via sightreading fun + interactive.

- Technical development. Using scales + arpeggios in a more musical context. Many teachers just teach scales for scales sake. Using backing tracks + inspirational riffs using scales, students learn to enjoy scales.

- Performance - Prior to learning songs pupils will learn all the necessary techniques to be able to master them and understand exactly what they are playing.

- Aural Perception - Using fun examples of popular songs + melodies to aid a pupils ability to train their ears. For example a perfect fifth interval in the Star Wars theme.

- Songwriting - Using theory in a fun way to learn what chords can be used with other chords, strumming patterns + how to improvise and create melodies over a piece effectively.

Years of playing and teaching experience. Studied at the prestigious Academy of Contemporary Music + University of Liverpool.

Being a member of the Registry of Guitar Tutors, pupils can be put forward for examinations fully accredited by the various exam boards by myself

Pupils can gain accelerated entry to all Diploma / Higher Diploma and degree courses at the prestigious Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford via my referral.
