I'm Alex! I teach both electric and acoustic guitar to pupils of all abilities (from beginners to more advanced players) in a variety of styles (including Pop, Rock, Blues, and Jazz). Lessons are very relaxed, with the aim being to learn and most importantly enjoy music! I will work with you on important areas of playing, but will also work to include your favourite styles of music as well, and hopefully introduce you to other styles!
I am an experienced performer and have been teaching guitar now for two years. I have taken my students over that time from complete beginners to being able to understand music, as well as learn and play their favourite songs. I always aim to nurture a desire for deeper understanding in music, and encourage my students to ask questions.
I have played the guitar since I was eight years old, and have achieved grades 1 - 8 in both Electric and Classical Guitar. In 2014 I graduated from Newcastle University with a 2:1 BA degree in Contemporary and Popular Music. Once finishing university I took time to hone my craft, learning and gathering experience in different musical styles, as well as different working environments (both live and in the studio), before starting to teach. Aside from teaching, I play in an award-winning Pop-Rock band called Outlander, who have performed around the country, opened for Simply Red, and are endorsed by the legendary string company Ernie Ball. I also work as a session musician, playing live in orchestras for musicals (these include Jesus Christ Superstar, Hairspray, 9 To 5, and Little Shop of Horrors).
