Campbell is obviously an experienced and skilled tutor and he made me feel at ease from day one. He can easily adjust his methods to suit each student regardless of age and ability. He is 100% trustworthy and reliable and I would recommend him to anyone who wants to learn music. I enjoy every lesson. Johnny B.

Campbell is a fantastic instructor! My 10year old son thoroughly enjoys learning to play sax with Campbell. He is reliable, professional and enthusiastic about music. He has shown great patience with my son, taking time to get to know him whilst encouraging him to keep going with his learning. He has a very pleasant manner when teaching making the learning fun and relevant for a ten year old beginner. I would recommend Campbell to anyone beginners and experienced musicians as he is flexible in his teaching methods. Working in education myself I know this is no mean feat and I can’t thank him enough for his help encouraging my son!

Campbell is an amazing tutor, he has the patience of a Saint. He is always happy to try out new and modern techniques that myself as a student wanted to learn on guitar.

He make music tuition fun and current - so much better than the starchy school lessons. We have seen our daughter come on leaps and bounds with Campbell.
He’s calm, kind and will always make the lesson fun. He constantly adapts things to get the best and individual to that child.
Campbell is always cheerful and a really now a friend. We can’t praise him enough. So glad that we found him.

Interview with Campbell

QUESTION 01 | 08
When did you first develop a passion for music and your favourite instrument?
Campbell — From the early age of four I was amazed by the music of The Beatles and used to find myself singing their songs, which were in the chart at that time, on my way to Primary School. This developed into my love for the guitar and bass which I seriously took up at the age of ten. I later at around 30 years old took up the alto saxophone being influenced by songs such as Careless Whisper and Baker Street. I then moved onto tenor saxophone.
QUESTION 02 | 08
Is there a particular type music or artist that you listen to on a loop without it driving you crazy?
Campbell — Although I love rock, soul, pop and jazz I’m sad to say I’m also a fan of Eurovision and love the 1975 winner by Teach in called Ding a Dong.
QUESTION 03 | 08
Explain to us the most difficult or riveting course you could personally give to a student of music.
Campbell — I find amongst my guitar students that songs such as Sultans of Swing takes time to develop all the finer nuances as originally applied by Mark Knopfler.
QUESTION 04 | 08
What do you think is the most complicated instrument to master and why?
Campbell — I think of all instrument’s guitar is difficult to master left and right hand working together successfully. There are also so many styles to playing guitar from classical fingerpicking to two handed tapping on electric rock guitar.
QUESTION 05 | 08
What are your keys to success?
Campbell — A little practice on a regular daily basis will yield fabulous results. After a few lessons progress will be obvious.
QUESTION 06 | 08
Name three musicians you dream of meeting in your favourite bar in the early hours of the morning. Explain why.
Campbell — I would love to meet the following:-

Paul McCartney because as stated earlier The Beatles were such a big influence I also think Maccas bass playing is very underestimated. I love his amazing song writing ability.

Jimi Hendrix is an unlikely choice as he passed away in 1970 but he still influences and amazes even the best guitarist in the world. He had such a unique approach to guitar playing and I also feel his vocal abilities were underestimated. I also imagine he would have been fun and polite.

Raphael Ravenscroft because his alto saxophone tone on Baker Street is amazing. He is also the author of the saxophone tutor course I use called The Complete Saxophone Player available in Alto and tenor formats.
QUESTION 07 | 08
Provide a valuable anecdote related to music or your days at music school.
Campbell — Practice slowly initially. If you can’t play it slow then you can’t play it fast.
QUESTION 08 | 08
What are the little touches that make you a Superprof in music?
Campbell — Very patient, thorough but fun.
