I take on classical guitar students from the age of 5 and have devised a fun way of teaching youngsters using colours, stars and stickers. The workbook has also proved to be successful over the years for teaching those with slight learning difficulties, those with phobias about music and those with dyslexia. Children who start with this workbook have turned out to be good sight readers.
(Any guitar teachers reading this are welcome to contact me if you are interested in using this method - it is fun and a joy to use.

I teach adults and run an adult ensemble (optional involvement)
I teach in a music studio in a family home (with friendly labrador dog - which will remain in kitchen if you do not like dogs)

The lessons I teach tend to be half an hour in length (an hour if required) on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday and follow the school term. (The oldest student I have taught so far was 81 can you beat the record :) )

You are welcome to have a shared lesson with a friend.

I have successfully entered students into classical guitar examination grades 1-8 with Trinity Guildhall over many years. You are free to take grade exams only if you wish (they are not for everybody - you may go through all the grade material without ever seeing an examiner if that is for you)

Playing an instrument can be exciting, moving, relaxing,social and fun - go for it!
