Depending on the pupil, some I will take through Classical Guitar grades to learn sight reading, music theory and fingerstyle technique, for other pupils we can learn songs and styles the pupil has an interest in, and learn to compose and improvise around those styles. We will always work on developing musicality, and how to create the best sound on the acoustic guitar!
Playing an instrument is a wonderful thing: it inspires as well as offers reprieve from the rest of the world. There’s nothing better than zoning out and strumming a guitar. And if you want to learn how to play one, I can help! I am a guitar teacher offering customised classes based on your goals and aptitude. I teach classical guitar grades where the pupils can learn to sight-read and develop good technique. I can also teach pop songs or focus on creativity through guitar composition and improvisation. I studied grade 8 classical guitar and trombone while at school before proceeding to study guitar further at the Academy of Contemporary Music to gain a BA (Hons) in Music Performance. I have been teaching guitar privately for 10 years with classes designed to help my students become accomplished musicians. Whether you want classical guitar classes or modern renditions, I’m flexible to tailor my sessions based on your preferences and abilities. My classes are designed to enhance your knowledge, building your skills and adapt to your needs whilst enabling you to grow musically and gain confidence and a deeper appreciation for music and all its wonders. I’m punctual, friendly, patient and great at inspiring my students to go the distance and achieve their dreams. Whether you want to become a better player to perform at a gig or pass a grade or simply learn for your own pleasure, you can count on my attention and instructions. Please get in touch for a detailed chat.
I tend to teach one of two directions, classical guitar (sight reading, learning pieces, taking grades) or more of a popular music direction where we learn songs, chords, how to improvise over chords, and how to compose on guitar. I have taken a lot of pupils through their classical guitar grades using the Trinity Syllabus, I personally studied ABRSM to grade 8, so i would happy to teach either syllabus if the pupil has a preference.
For the popular music path, I like to let the pupil lead by their musical interests. For example, they can choose songs, genres or particular solos they want to learn and I will break it down into easy learn parts. We can also take the Rockschool acoustic grades if the pupils wants to get some grades under their belt!
Sebastian is an excellent teacher : not only is he a gifted player himself, he is very patient and helpful. He truly adapts the classes to the student, and is always willing to improvise if you want to delve further into a specific subject.
Sebastian has taught our son Michael for roughly 7 years both within education and privately. Sebastian comes highly recommended as a guitar teacher our son has always enjoyed his lesson in classical guitar. Sebastian is patient and encouraging. He keeps his students motivated to learn by varying the music style to include popular music to the students taste. He is very reliable and dedicated in helping our son reach his musical potential.
