Guitar tuition in Leicester from Very Experienced Music College Trained Concert Guitarist

Methodology

Lesson overview: Length of the lesson depends on the pupil’s requirements and level of playing. All lessons will consistently incorporate certain fundamental aspects of technique and musicianship which are essential to a student’s progress and development. Students all receive the same elementary training at the outset but having reached a basic level of competency they can then begin to explore more specific styles and approaches to their playing.

The key elements to a lesson are posture, placement of hands, sight-reading, counting, aural skills, basic theory, tone production, technical exercises, scales, arpeggios, chords, broken chords and pieces and later on improvisation and some composition if suitable.
Lessons are conducted in a friendly and focused manner so as to encourage the student to engage as fully as possible with the material they are working on.

As pupils progress they can have the option of taking instrumental exams or choosing pieces that suit a pupil's musical interests and aspirations. These can include any style or genre.

Experience

A graduate of Trinity College of Music, London, I teach the classical, acoustic, electric & bass guitar. I teach individuals from an elementary level up to grade 8 which includes the examination boards of the Royal Schools of Music, Trinity College of Music, Guildhall School of Music and Drama and Rock School. I have also run many guitar ensembles which have sometimes included other instruments. My students also play regularly in school concerts. As well as teaching I very much enjoy giving talks and demonstrations on the guitar in schools.
Professionally I perform as a classical guitarist which incorporates solo, chamber and concerto playing. I have performed in festivals and concert series throughout the UK. I also compose a lot of student pieces ( varying standards ) as well as more advanced pieces for the guitar.

I would whole heartedly recommend Richard as a guitar tutor. I am an older learner so not over confident but Richard is approachable, reassuring and incredibly patient. I am learning so much about the guitar and music theory in general.

Richard teaches my 8 year old daughter guitar on Saturdays. He is flexible, dedicated and approachable. My daughter describes him as “ kind and friendly”.

I'm beginning to understand more.music theory & site reading. Richard is patient, knowledgeable and offers excellent instruction.
