For three decades, I've been teaching Acoustic Guitar and
Classical Guitar for all ages and abilities, along with Electric Bass
and Electric Guitar for beginners. I am also an experienced
GCSE level teacher and I have found that schools often attempt to teach
music without learning to read traditional musical notation from the
outset. I always base my lesson construction around teaching the guitar
hand in hand with learning to read music, making me an ideal
supplemental teacher as well as a high quality main teacher.
All guitar lessons are on a strictly one to one basis.
believe in teaching in groups since players are often of different
levels and learn at varying speeds. Group teaching
simply doesn't give pupils their best chance for improvement.
All lessons can take place either at my home, or yours,
arrangement. I'm based in South Manchester a few minutes from the
teach reading music as an essential tool for today's players.
Some people learn to play from tabs, but that doesn't allow them to
play music they don't know, because the rythm isn't designated.With
music notation, given time the players can play
anything that is put in front of them, and it's
language is universal , and I can
teach a 5 year old the rudiments of how you read music within
first hour. Playing the instrument however does take a little longer
Music I Teach
won't teach a particular style, which is too limiting for the student.
Instead I will teach you how to be the best player you can be, with
the aid of the best tutorial books around. Whether you want to play
acoustic with a plectrum, or
classical with your fingers/nails, I use books that go very gradually
and thoroughly through the process. Its up to you to keep to your
(which at the beginning is only 15 minutes a day) to enable you to
reach your goal.
I also actively encourage players to try to learn to play
by ear too. To do this, you might play a CD and try playing
along to it - maybe a rythm or a riff, whatever catches your
may be difficult at first, but you will begin to see
relationship between written notes and places on the
fingerboard. After a while, you will hear a record, and
find you know where the notes are on the fingerboard. Then you will see
reading music and playing by ear are inextricably linked, and your
playing will take a big step forward.
