« Sam is an astonishingly brilliant and sensitive musician with an international career. Anyone who has the chance of learning with him will be lucky indeed. In addition to his technical virtuosity on guitar and lute he is, as a teacher, patient, warm, encouraging, generous and versatile in approach. He takes endless trouble to explain technique, harmony and musicality. He is an excellent and communicative authority on musicianship and musical history. His lessons are always so much more than just guitar. He manages to combine being a master and an expert with being just delightful company. He raises your confidence while giving you the feeling that he too has struggled. He makes you not only unselfconsciously aware of your own musicality but able to start to express it freely. He has the ability to change and enhance your whole relationship with music. »

Friendly, expert classical guitar tuition offered with experienced professional in the Bath area

Methodology

I've been based in Bath for the last few years, and in that time I've enjoyed a busy freelance performing and teaching career. I'm a professional guitarist and lute player, and I trained in London and Switzerland.

I love music, and foremost as a teacher I want to impart this love. I have a very easygoing but expert teaching manner, and I believe that humour and a light touch are the best way to help improvement along. I tailor lessons and repertoire totally to the student, working with their likes, and also teaching the foundations of a solid guitar technique and musical understanding.

Experience

I've enjoyed a busy teaching practice in Bath for the last few years. I teach mainly classical guitar, but also lute and music theory and guitar basics, and I work as a tutor and coach at the University of Bath.

I'm comfortable teaching students of all ages and abilities - mostly learning for the love of it, and sometimes also preparing for grade exams, GCSEs and performances.

My son was on the verge of giving up guitar after four years and four increasingly uninspired teachers provided by the school’s music service. A musician friend suggested Sam and I was impressed by his website and teaching philosophy. It was the philosophy that pupils should always enjoy their music and feel like they’re making progress that persuaded my son to give him a go. He has never looked back!
He loves his lessons, obviously really likes Sam who, as well as all the above and the proper technique, has also taught him a wider appreciation of music and bits of music theory, organically, as things have cropped up in lessons.
My son has approved this review(!) and adds, ‘He’s a great teacher!’.

Sam is an ideal tutor with his friendly and open approach. He takes great care when teaching and is passionate about his subject.

I have known Sam for 10 years first as a talented and hardworking student and in the later years as successful and prolific performer. I have no doubts that Sam, as a teacher, will inspire and pass on to his pupil his inspiration, knowledge of music and love for guitar!
