GUITAR / BASS / UKULELE

I've been playing guitar for close to 20 years and have over 10 years experience in teaching. I feel very strongly about making lessons fun, engaging and interesting as well as ensuring all fundamentals and skills are taught. I am able to teach in a variety of styles, genres and can adapt all lessons to all ages and abilities:

  • Lessons are suitable for total beginners, intermediate players and experienced players want to develop and improve.

  • Classical/Acoustic/Electric lessons or a mixture of all three.

  • Learn how to read music (guitar)

  • Music Theory implemented into lessons

  • All styles can be covered including: pop, rock, heavy metal, classical, acoustic finger style, jazz, acoustic, singer songwriter, reggae, indie and more...

  • Learn and develop techniques in improvisation.

  • Able to travel to your house (I'm based in Mumbles, Swansea).

  • Develop songwriting and compositional techniques and skills.

  • Learn how to record, compose and produce music using guitar.

I also teach ukulele. Good for younger learners and beginners to stringed instruments, the ukulele is a really fun instrument to learn quickly. I run a ukulele club in my local primary school for those aged 7-11, but the ukulele can be learnt by all ages! I like to make sure that in ukulele lessons my pupils learn to play songs that they enjoy as it encourages practise and development.

My current rates for 2019 are £15.00 for half an hour lessons.
