« Ross has been my guitar tutor for around 6 months. He is a polite, enthusiastic tutor, who explains things in a manner that is very easy to understand. I believe that Ross has the patience, knowledge and skills to teach anyone, from a beginner like me, up to pro level, using experience gained from over 12 years of playing. He teaches at the pace you set and is happy for you to dictate the path of the lesson, so you could do anything you choose…maybe some chord work, strumming patterns or learning songs you like. If you want to learn more complicated stuff Ross is just as happy explaining the theory of music on the guitar fretboard and helping you develop soloing and improvisation strategies. Because Ross has such a great musical knowledge he also plays several other songs in his lessons as further examples of where the lick or melody you are learning is also heard. Ross makes the one to one lessons really enjoyable, and will always leave you with a feeling of deeper understanding and a desire to learn more! If he can teach me, a ‘slow-learning’ middle-aged lady beginner, then he can teach anyone! More than happy to recommend Ross to potential students. »

Gigging Musician Offering Beginner and Intermediate Guitar and Bass Lessons in Glasgow

Methodology

I give lessons with the idea that each student wants to learn different things using different teaching styles, I have a degree in Psychology so I am very conscious of how people can learn effectively based on who they are as individuals.

Background

I have been playing guitar and bass for over 12 years and have been playing live shows for 8, and I have been tutoring several students for the past 6 months and am looking to get a few more. I currently am taking my masters in music with emphasis on songwriting and recording. So far my students have shown major signs of improvement being able to achieve goals they have set out for themselves in much less time than they expected.
