About Me:

My name is Richard and I have 15 years playing experience. I have 10 years experience gigging in bands with which I have recorded and released singles and EPs under record labels. I have studied music at GCSE, Diploma and Degree level and am a B(mus) Graduate of Kingston University. I also have certificates in Grade 8 Bass Guitar and Grade 5 Music Theory. I gained a lot of my musical knowledge from my father who is a musician and guitar teacher with many years experience.

Courses And Pricing:

I tailor lessons to my student’s requirements. We can plan a course of lessons or alternatively we can organise them on a casual week-by-week basis. I charge £10 for a half hour lesson or £17 for an hour. Group lessons can be arranged at a charge of £5 per additional pupil, per half hour. The first half hour introductory lesson is free of charge. Students of any age are welcome and parents are welcome to stay and observe lessons. Parents of primary school children are required to be present throughout the lesson.

What You Can Expect To Learn:

I can, if you wish, take you through the grades on your instrument and/or in music theory. However, I’ve found in my experience that the best way for a beginner to pick up the basic skills fast is to begin by learning to play his/her favourite songs. You can tell me a band you really like and I will find appropriate songs by them to help you learn. I’ll teach you to play the song and explain the theory and techniques that go with playing it. These may include:

• Strumming with plectrum or finger picking
• Chords
• Scales/Arpeggios
• Soloing and improvisation
• Left and right hand techniques
• Music theory
• Reading guitar tablature, chord boxes and/or standard notation

I will provide you with my own paperwork on general guitar knowledge, practice techniques, music theory and chords and tablature to songs free of charge. If you wish to learn instrument/theory grades or learn from a specific score/text the pupil will have to provide their own copy. I can also offer advice on suitable tutor books. I can make audio recordings and (when necessary) video recordings of lessons for a charge of £1 for a half hour or £2 for an hour.
