My teaching style is flexible and adaptable to suit the specific needs and goals of individual students. Playing music should be fun, and one of the most important things for me to do as a teacher is to inspire my students. I take a holistic approach, seeking to give clear and valuable information that is relevant to their goals as a musician. I give my students the tools they need to explore that information productively and enjoyably, and show them how to apply it to their performance, improvisation, and compositions.
I am a guitarist and music tutor with a wide range of teaching and performing experience spanning the past twenty years. I have a degree in Jazz from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, and I play and teach guitar in a variety of styles and settings, ranging from jazz and blues to rock and heavy metal.
Perfect! Great first lesson with Mat, and looking forward to continuing to learn guitar with him. It's evident that he has the experience and knowledg of a great guitar tutor, and is a genuinely easy going, down to earth guy. I clicked with him right away and felt relaxed during the lesson.
Great first lesson! Scott had a thorough and attentive approach to the material we covered, and wasn't afraid to ask questions. Very friendly and easy going also.
I’d already been playing for many years before I sought tuition from Barnes. What I was looking for from an instructor was someone to give me a structure or framework to guide me through the fundamental principles of playing music on guitar. I’d somehow avoided studying the modes/scales for over a decade. I already had total confidence in his breadth of knowledge, but Barnes made each session fun while gently nudging me out of my comfort zone.
