Guitar Lessons

Styles – I give acoustic or electric guitar lessons, covering rock, pop, indie, blues, soul, funk, metal and folk. However, more importantly than any specific style, I teach how to approach, practice and learn music in general. These disciplines can be applied to any style.

Guitar Lessons

Level – I am very happy teaching giving guitar lessons to any age and level of student from complete beginners to experienced players. I have Grade 8 guitar (Rockschool), Grade 5 Music Theory, Grade 5 Drums and Grade 4 Piano. This gives me a breadth and depth of knowledge to teach all ability levels. For more about my background check out the About Me page.

Location – I give guitar lessons at my home in Hampton Wick (KT1), which is close to Kingston Upon Thames, Teddington and Twickenham. It’s easy to get to by car or public transport. The location page has full details of how to find me.

Exams – I can support students working towards guitar grade exams if required. I have often found grades to be a good way of focusing and motivating my practice. However, this is not obligatory and it is entirely possible to become an excellent guitarist without taking grades. The grade boards I’m most familiar with are Rockschool and Trinity Rock & Pop.

Frequency – Guitar lessons can be booked regularly or on an ad-hoc basis. However, I strongly recommend regular lessons for the best possible progress, ideally weekly. Fortnightly may be enough for 60 minute lessons, as long as you are motivated and disciplined enough to practice regularly between lessons.

Age – I can teach students from age 5 upwards. I have a clean DBS / CRB check.

30 minute guitar lesson – £18
60 minute guitar lesson – £36

Cancellations – Please give 48 hours’ notice for cancellations, otherwise the full fee will be payable.
