I offer lessons that will focus on your personal goals and pace. If there is a song or style that really inspires you, we can work together to achieve your guitar dreams.
My lessons are for all age ranges and, given the current situation, I am arranging lessons via SKYPE or ZOOM. When the situation changes, I will return to in person lessons.
For less experienced players:
We will begin looking at chords and the theory behind them. Alongside this we will cover sight reading, learn to read rhythms and the notation on a stave. Developing basic strumming and picking techniques, through songs of your choice and lots lots more.
For intermediate/advanced players:
We will develop your music theory further with more advanced scales and chords, delve into more complex techniques like tapping and legato, and practice improvisation in your preferred styles (for example, blues, rock, disco/funk or indie).
Whatever your level, we will focus on developing your skills and the styles that excite you.
Hey, my name is Oliver Reeves. I am 31 years old.
I love playing and teaching guitar. I have over 15 years playing experience, beginning with taking private lessons myself and then going on to study music performance at university. I have always played in bands, and have performed hundreds of gigs at venues around the country - notably supporting French heavy metal band Trepalium.
I taught students one-to-one when I lived in Brighton, and I am now looking to take on students again. I can teach all levels of electric guitar, whether you are a total beginner or if you are ready to shred like Steve Vai!!!
Standard lessons are one hour. Please give 24hours notice before cancelling, thank you.

I used to play when I was younger but fell out of the habit. I picked my guitar back up in lockdown and realised how rusty I was and thought a few lessons may help. Thanks to Oliver's calm and patient style I'm back playing the songs of my youth!
Oliver is a great teacher, he's extremely knowledgeable, patient and really helping me develop my guitar playing. I couldn't recommend a better teacher!
I would highly recommend Oliver as a teacher, he has a passion for playing and teaching guitar. He is really patient and encouraging to whoever he teaches. He studied guitar at University and gained his degree. He has a real interest in all genres of music. I would recommend him as a great teacher.
