Classical and Electric Guitarist offering lessons grades 1 - 8 or learn just for fun!

Methodology

I think it's vital to demonstrate various styles that can be played on the guitar in order to further inspire the student into learning (even the boring stuff). Good technique is the key to playing your favourite music stress-free, so I like to encourage students to play through various exercises designed to quickly improve their dexterity. Lessons also consist of some music theory as it provides a solid foundation in case students wish to further their studies in music.

Background

Classically trained ex-student of Trinity College of Music and Law graduate from Greenwich University offering private guitar lessons to all ages. I've been teaching electric and classical guitar for approximately 5 years and have helped many students get great results playing all styles. Now living in Sidcup I have approximately 15 students, some of which I am preparing for grade exams later this year.
