Notes:

My name is Jack Edwards, I am a professional guitar tutor based in Cannock, Staffordshire. I assume that you are here to learn to play the guitar or even improve upon your abilities... I am ready to help you, be it electric or acoustic! I teach all ages, all abilities, I am registered with RGT and I am fully DBS checked. I teach students in the surrounding areas of Cannock, Rugeley, Stafford, Lichfield and Burntwood.

I have been playing guitar professionally for over twelve years. I have toured with various artists all over the world with shows in places such as Japan, Dubai and across Europe and the United Kingdom. My guitar playing has recently caught the attention of industry professionals, receiving praise from Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple), Orianthi (Michael Jackson band) and Bumblefoot (Guns N' Roses).

I have a wealthy background of professional music education. I studied a degree in Guitar Performance at one of the United Kingdom's leading music universities (Academy Of Music & Sound) before completing an additional degree in Music Business (at Birmingham City University) and graduated my professional music education with First Class Honours.

I started my teaching profession working at local music institutions leading masterclasses, but as demand built for private tuition that became my primary focus teaching a large base of weekly, fortnightly and monthly students. As of April 2018, I am now the official Guitar Instructor at two of Staffordshire's leading further education colleges in Newcastle Under Lyme and Stafford. I am officially registered with RGT (Registry of Guitar Tutors at London College of Music) and have a full DBS check.

I am currently best known as the guitar player of Piston and Kaato but have previously been involved with bands such as Inglorious and Guns 2 Roses.

GUITAR TUITION APPROACH:

ALL AGES & ALL ABILITIES ARE WELCOME

Want to learn to play your favourite style for enjoyment? Yep, we can do that!

You ARE NOT too old to learn!

Does your child want to learn? No problem, children have lessons tailored towards them too!

Beginners, Intermediates and Advanced Players are ALL welcome!

No guitar? I have guitars that can be leant to students if needed!

I teach a variety of musical genres to students of all ages (ranging from 7 to 67 years of age). I have found that my approach to guitar tuition is slightly different than the traditional formats offered. The key to a students progress is to understand the guitar playing that captivated them to want to learn in the first place and their goals for the instrument. By identifying these crucial elements, lessons can be structured and enhanced to increase the engagement of the individual on the instrument.

My lessons are scaled to fit the learning patterns of each student - we all learn differently! The lessons are focused on the fundamental elements of guitar playing with Chords, Chordal Work, Scales, Ear Training, Playing in Keys, Guitar Techniques and Music Theory - and we use these key areas to assist in the development of the student to bring out their musical voice (by learning their favourite songs or their favourite guitar licks). I have a range of techniques that I have created over the years that assists in overcoming the common obstacles faced by individuals when attempting to learn the instrument and these are implemented in each lesson.

Most of all, whether it's learning your favourite songs or developing your techniques it is essential for you to have fun in the lessons and feel happy and productive! Lets get YOU progressing on your musical journey!
