Guitar and bass tutor for beginners and intermediate players who want to play pop/rock songs. Happy to help develop original ideas while gaining a basic understanding of rhythm and harmony.

Methodology

I would teach students to play songs from the word go by playing along to the original versions. This is a good way to develop the ability to play with other musicians. I would encourage students to learn songs that they like as this is much more enjoyable and leads to more enthusiasm for playing. For those who want to work on original ideas I can introduce techniques and approaches to aid their developement.

Experience

I am a graduate of ACM in Guilford and a working musician / songwriter with 8 years gigging experience in various styles. My songs have had airplay in the UK and abroad and I have taught at holiday 'rock school' music workshops.

Rates

Transportation Fee : £5
Rate for online lessons : £20/h

Details

For beginners I suggest lessons should only last 30 mins, for which the fee would be £15
