I tailor my teaching style to the individual, for example, some students want to take the conventional route and get their ABRSM or Trinity-Guildhall grades, others will simply want to learn how to play their favourite songs.
I personally believe that each student should reach the point where they can hear a piece of music on the radio and instantly pick it up by ear, or even be able to imagine their own compositions and know immediately how to play them. This is the ultimate goal towards which my lessons are directed. I teach both plectrum and fingerstyle playing.
I also have substantial experience setting up guitars (Bridge, Nut, Truss Rod) so I could do this for you (for a small fee) or advise you on how to do it yourself.
Having studied Composition I also have an excellent understanding of musical theory so i can offer lessons in this area or can include theory as part of your guitar lessons. Similarly, I'm a highly experienced songwriter and can incorporate songwriting tuition into our lessons.
I'm happy to travel up to 3 miles to teach you or you can come to my residence in Moseley. I'm offering 30 or 60min lessons and the first lesson would be a free 30min lesson so you can decide if I'm the right teacher for you.
