Teaching is my passion, and I enjoy teaching people how to play as much as I enjoy playing. I have been offering guitar lessons in Chichester for several years now. I am registered with the RGT (registry of guitar tutors) and the Tutor Pages, and am happy to put students through their grades. I currently have a 100% pass record and teach all the way up to grade 8. I teach a wide range of styles that include rock, blues, jazz, latin, acoustic styles and much more. I teach a comprehensive understanding of theory and performance techniques as well as how to improvise. I also teach students how to compose music and write songs. Lessons are fun and relaxed, I am fully DBS checked and parents are welcome to sit in on lessons if they wish. Please use my contact form to get in touch with me to discuss your first lesson.

Ian rates are very reasonable and he displays excellent and thorough knowledge of the guitar, My technique has improved and Ian has been very helpful in getting me composing my own chord progressions and writing my own songs.”
Ian has a great way of explaining the magic of guitar!! He is very patient (needs to be with me!) and is very good at understanding what you feel you would like to accomplish in playing guitar. His rates are very reasonable and the lessons themselves are very informative and fun by combining music theory and playing. He is very knowledgable and i would recommend him to anyone wanting to learn the guitar.”
