Private, one-to-one guitar lessons
My guitar lessons cater for everyone wanting to learn the guitar, from beginners to advanced students, including all abilities, all ages and all styles of guitar playing. The lessons are tailored to meet your individual requirements; whether you are looking to play your favourite songs on your guitar for enjoyment, or perhaps you are interested in taking examinations with one of the established guitar exam boards, I can help you to achieve your guitar playing goals.
The guitar lesson slots are available in 30 minute, 45 minute, or 1 hour timeslots. Shorter sessions are more suitable for beginners and children, with longer sessions being more suited to adults and progressing guitarists wishing to spend some time working on a particular area of study or song material. A paired hours lesson is available to students under the age of 16 allowing siblings or friends to share an hours slot, taking 30 mins individual sessions each to split the cost. Guitar lesson gift cards are also available for purchase.
As a professional guitar tutor my aim is to help students develop both their guitar playing technique and guitar music theory knowledge to achieve their musical ambitions. Where possible the lessons are structured to incorporate music by bands & artists that students enjoy, making the lessons relevant to the musical styles that students want to play. During the lessons we’ll use various musical resources including tabs, song sheets, and exercises, all of which will be shared with you via email after the lesson.
I also offer GCSE & A-Level performance coaching for students sitting school-based music exams and who need to prepare solo and ensemble pieces for their performance modules. External guitar examinations are also available to students wanting to formalise their learning through one of the established guitar exam boards (Rockschool & Trinity Guildhall) which is particularly beneficial for students studying GCSE and/or A-Level Music. A Grade 6 Certificate and above counts towards UCAS points for Year 13 students applying to university. I hold a Grade 8 (Distinction) certificate, and have taught many other students who have worked through their guitar grades and now hold the same.
Guitar lessons available in schools
I currently teach guitar lessons at Tomlinscote School in Camberley, and Gordons School in West End, Woking. The lessons take place during the school day, and are scheduled to last 30 minutes on a ‘rolling timetable’ basis (different times week-to-week) to help minimise students missing classroom lesson time. Lessons are also scheduled during break time and lunch wherever possible.
If your child attends either school and would like lessons during the school day then please contact me for a lesson application form. Alternatively if you would like guitar lessons to be offered at your child’s school, but they aren’t currently available, please let me know.
