WHAT I TEACH


The Most important thing is that you learn the kind of guitar that YOU WANT to play. With that in mind, your lessons will be tailored with your passions as a guide. Whether that means sweep picking and two-hand tapping your way through a Metallica classic, or gently finger picking a chord-melody arrangement of a jazz standard...and everything in-between!



Electric Guitar


       I cover all main genres of popular guitar playing - Rock; Pop; Metal; Jazz; Blues; Funk, etc. I also teach up to Grade 8 using the Rockschool syllabus.


Acoustic Guitar


       I also teach various styles of acoustic guitar; steel string or nylon/classical; fingerstyle or pick. Covering Jazz, Acoustic Pop/Rock, Flamenco, Delta Blues, alternate tunings, etc.


Guitar Grades:


I also offer training for graded electric guitar exams. I use the Rockschool grade books which offer;


- A varied range of repertoire

- All necessary scales and arpeggios

- Sight reading tests

Thinking of University?
