Having played with numerous rock bands, blues bands and show bands, as well as
being invited to contribute to many other
artists' recordings, in addition to my own
work of recording classical, fingerstyle blues and ragtime acoustic pieces, over the years,
I've developed many styles of playing. You
don't have to learn every style of playing,
but, the more styles you can play, the more
versatile you will be. Be all you can be!
The First Note
Maybe, you'd like to learn how to play your favourite songs, develop your technique, and become a more expressive player. Maybe, you're at the stage where you would like to develop your fretboard knowledge and get a better understanding of music theory. Whatever you feel you need to become a better and more rounded player, I can help you to achieve your ambitions.
Teach In Harmony
Maybe, your goals are more modest, and the ability to strum your way through your favourite songs is your ambition. That's your choice. I'm more than happy to show you how to do that while helping you to develop a sense of rhythm at the same time.
The Future Sounds Good
Although there is no requirement to do so, you may wish to study the internationally recognised RGT or Rockschool exam modules. These graded exams are accredited by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority, and UCAS points are available for grades 6 - 8.
Learning to read music is not a prerequisite to becoming a guitar player - some of the best players out there can't read a note. But, it was a huge help to me in terms of phrasing what I was trying to play, and gave me a great understanding in how to construct my own music. And, it's probably not as difficult to learn as you might think!
We’d love to hear from you!
