Acoustic & Electric Guitar

My lessons are built around my student's musicial preferences, ensuring that they learn at a pace that is right for them. For those pupils who are interested I also offer classical guitar grading through the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) - though this is entirely optional, with many of my students simply learning for pleasure. I also teach all ages, from beginners upwards - helping students with no prior experience learn to play the guitar.

To book your first lesson or to find out more about my mobile guitar tuition simply get in touch by calling 01206 688057.
