I enjoy sitting down with students and creating practice plans for the short and long term. This could be working towards an SQA, ABRSM or Trinity exam for example or just putting on a little show for your family.
My teaching style is very dependent on what the student needs and how they wish to work. If a student wants to work casually then that's totally up to them. If more advanced students want to be pushed then I'm happy to do that also. I also have experience of working with children who have additional support needs.
With beginners, I like to take the time to make sure you're comfortable around the instrument. It's very important to make sure that your hands and seating position are set properly. From there, we will refine both musicality and technique and expand your repertoire/song list. It's also very important to me that beginners enjoy what they play so I like to allow you to pick some songs or repertoire too!
With more advanced players, I like to listen to your playing and work out a route map from there. We'll normally discuss topics such as music history, shaping your phrasing and working on adding colour to your pieces as well as nails (if applicable) and technique.
I hope you'll enjoy working with me!
I am an experienced performer and tutor working classical settings as well as bands of many styles. My main love is for the classical guitar although I enjoy folk and acoustic (finger-style) also. I now study under the Maestro Prof. Hubert Käppel and hope to pass on the knowledge I gain from the great masters of todays guitar world. I have 5 years of professional teaching experience working with another experienced tutor as well as on my own in both private and group settings. I also have a PVG (full disclosure) and certificates from EduCare.
I am happy to work out long term rates with each student. Please give me 6 hours notice if you cancel your lesson. I prefer to give catchup lessons rather than charge a cancellation fee. If I am ill or unavailable, I may be able to arrange another teacher to take my place with a reduced rate if you'd prefer that. I prefer to be paid either in cash or via PayPal.
- Private teaching since 2016
