I am a highly experienced and understanding professional guitar tutor who delivers tailor made lessons to suit your musical interests and experience. Learning an instrument should be fun and enriching and itís great fun making your own music. I can travel to deliver lessons to you within a reasonable travelling area up to approximately 12 miles.

My approach to teaching guitar would be best summarised as the ability to teach across different playing styles to enable engaging and flexible lessons. Theses styles can be adapted to the interests and abilities of each student and to achieve maximum potential.

Lessons can be focussed on songs and pieces you would like to learn - and the simple techniques needed to play them. For more advanced students I can teach guitar techniques, reading music, tablature, music theory, and how to be creative and improvise on the guitar. I will supply you with great resources and a personalised plan so you will be able to progress at the speed you want and in the styles of music you are interested in. My students are happy and motivated.

I teach from beginner to advanced level in a choice of traditional and contemporary styles. I have taught students between the ages of 8 and 80 and have taught many absolute beginners at all ages. For students and parents interested in Classical guitar my students are achieving excellent grades through the exam entry service I provide to locally based Trinity College London assessment centres.

The Contemporary styles I cover include Pop and Rock, Country, Blues, World and Spanish Guitar, including electric guitar playing. I have played in several bands as a lead guitarist and have hosted and run regular open mikes encompassing both pop and acoustic styles as well as performing at singer songwriter nights.

Excellent references available on request. Limited number of lesson slots available, please enquire early to avoid disappointment. Please feel free to contact me any time.
