I have been playing guitar since I was about 8 years old, studied at Guitar Institute in London and received private tuition from some of the most experienced pros in the UK for a period of 2 years prior to becoming a Teacher myself.
From my tutoring I began selling guitars to beginners and that was the start of me and my World of guitar Retail some 15 years ago.
Since moving to Stratford Upon Avon I have managed to regain an hour of my day - every day (no travelling to Leamington) as I live just down the road yet I have found myself repeatedly excusing why I no longer "have time" to teach. Now I am in Stratford I feel like the excuse is possibly no longer valid so hence this re-introduction of of my tution services, all be it on a limited scale.
I have a very firm view of where I believe my value lies - and it is not in offering lessons to an individual week in week out for eternity with no end goal in sight.
I see my role as someone who tackles specific problems whether it be of a technical nature or theoretical.
My lessons are focused, consise and will enable you to "get over" whatever barrier was in your way prior to the lesson.
My lessons would not be a replacement to but a consolidation of whatever method you may already be using (online resources, private tuition, books/dvds etc) where I can fill in the missing blanks so to speak.
I can help you understand more about what you are playing in order for you to have the understanding to develop your own direction in the future.
In principal I am happy to teach anyone of any age and any skill level but of course will point you in the right direction if I feel I am not the right person for you.
Lessons are 30 minutes in length - long enough for me to put across an important musical "aspect" and to ensure you have understood it - so you can go away and practice it!
Lessons fit around my shop hours so between 8am & 10am, 1pm & 2pm or 5.30pm to 6.30pm are all fine with me.
A lesson is £20 which includes being on hand following the lesson via my live help if you need a helping hand and what I teach you in 30 minutes will be a building block to benefit from forever.
