Notes:

www.matthelm.co.uk

I have run a busy and successful private teaching practice for the past 4 years. In that time I've taught over a hundred students of varying levels and abilities.

I have been playing guitar for 20 years, ever since my Dad unexpectedly presented me with an acoustic guitar one Christmas. Ive never looked back, and in the intervening years Ive also picked up bass, drums and piano. In 2002 during my summer holidays from University I attended a 10 week full time course at the Guitar Institute in London.

I have played with a number of bands throughout my musical career we have been fortunate enough to play to audiences across the UK and in Europe, with gigs in Germany, Austria, Portugal, Italy and Norway. I also play regularly in Musical Theatre productions.

Styles - I teach acoustic and electric guitar, covering rock, pop, indie, blues, soul, funk, metal and folk. However, more importantly than any specific style, I teach how to approach, practice and learn music in general. These disciplines can be applied to any style.

Level - I am very happy teaching any age and level of student from complete beginners to experienced players.

Price
30 minute lesson £18
60 minute lesson £36

Location - I teach from my home in Hampton Wick (KT1), which is a minute from Hampton Wick train station and convenient to get to from Teddington, Twickenham, Kingston, Surbiton, Richmond and the surrounding areas.

Exams - I can support students working towards grade exams if required. However, this is not obligatory and it is entirely possible to become an excellent guitarist without taking grades. I have experience guiding students through Rockschool (RSL), RGT, Trinity Rock and Pop, Trinity Classical and Trinity Plectrum grades.

Frequency - Lessons can be booked regularly or on an ad-hoc basis. However, I strongly recommend regular lessons for the best possible progress, ideally weekly. Fortnightly may be enough for 60 minutes lessons, as long as you are motivated and disciplined enough to practice regularly between lessons.

I am CRB / DBS checked.
