**With the continued concern around the spread of Coronavirus I am now teaching lessons via Skype & Zoom. These will be offered at a 10% discounted rate on my usual lesson prices.**

Private guitar lessons with David McDonnell, B(mus). A local tutor with a wealth of performance and teaching experience. Lessons are carried out at the student's own home saving you traveling time and expenses. I currently cover Hertford, Ware, Stanstead Abbotts, Hoddesdon, Broxbourne & Cheshunt.

Lessons are aimed at the student’s individual needs but I incorporate the vital elements of a guitarist's musicianship. These include improvising, rhythm playing, chords, scales, ear training, techniques, modes, arpeggios, sight-reading, timing, dynamics and articulation. Most importantly as well, I can show the student how to organise all this so that they do not become overwhelmed.

I have helped students prepare for qualifications in Guitar, Bass, Ukulele & Music Theory for the following exam boards: ‘Rockschool’, ‘Trinity College London’, ‘ABRSM’, 'London College of Music' & ‘Registry of Guitar Tutors’.

I can also assist in application and auditioning for any of the undergraduate popular music performance courses such as those at ‘BIMM’, the ‘Institute of Contemporary Music’, 'Leeds College of Music' and other universities.

I have a recent DBS certificate (2020), have trained in safeguarding children (2019) & have full public liability insurance. In addition to this I am also a member of 'The Musician's Union'.
