I have been teaching guitar since the mid-1990s mainly on a one-to-one basis and I also offer tuition via Skype and or Zoom video link. Lessons tailored to the individual needs of each student. Formal study of the instrument can be undertaken and for this purpose I recommend starting on a nylon string guitar suitable for classical and flamenco styles. For folk/blues and contemporary styles there is no specific requirement to read music as I use tab in these lessons.

Equipment can be supplied for lessons. Beginner to advanced and students can take grades if they wish. Discount available on block bookings. Further details available on request.

I have experience of running music workshops in Adult and Further Education settings and social services day centres.

Payment is by cash, cheque or BACs (on line transfer) on the day of the lesson. I also operate a cancellation policy as follows:

Please provide 24 hours notice of cancellation otherwise a fee may be charged.
