About the lesson
Guitar & Ukulele lessons:
Electric, Bass, Acoustic & Classical: learn great riffs, solos, improvisation, finger picking, strumming styles, numerous chords & scales to develop your playing..
I've taught extensively across the different guitar genres over the past thirty years. Many of my students have gone on to take graded exams (1-8) in electric, bass, acoustic & classical guitar as well as ukulele.
Having played professionally as a classical guitarist in numerous festivals across the UK you can expect to get a teaching approach to playing that can really enhance and facilitate your own guitar or ukulele capabilities.
If you’re a beginner, you will learn the basics of the instrument in a very practical and hands on way whilst the more advanced students will get a fund of technical and musical tips to develop their understanding of the instrument, essential to reaching the next level. Whatever style or standard you are you can expect enthusiastic & passionate teaching.
Duo Lessons: why not start learning an instrument with a friend? Shared lessons are fun & a great activity to do together.

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, Registered Guitar Tutors 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.
Richard is awesome and multitalented. He has a great attitude and has been very patient in teaching my son the piano. Jeremy loves learning with Richard and looks forward for his lessons. As Jeremy goes for piano, I highly recommend to any level piano student that seeks instruction. We are already planning to send our younger son to learn guitar from Richard because of good comments from our son Jeremy.
I recommend Richard as a tutor, he is a positive influence, encouraging and making children feel they can get to the next step. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
I had guitar lessons for approx 6 months prior to the start of the Coronavirus Pandemic with Richard who was a good Guitar Tutor, structuring the lessons around my specific needs. Richard was a great motivator and I’m sure will tap into and support the creativity of many others.
Richard is super patient and great at explaining the concepts.my daughter (13 y) really enjoys her lessons.
Richard is an excellent teacher to both beginners and experienced learners. His ability to understand different learning styles and preferences, constant and unwavering patience and encouragement, and support with self-learning between lessons makes learning with him enjoyable. I learn for pleasure and my son learns for both pleasure and progress towards a qualification, and both of us have benefited from Richards style of teaching. Furthermore, he is a very pleasant, flexible and cheerful individual who makes learning fun.
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 really enjoyed my lessons with Richard. He paced them to my abilities and was very encouraging. Thank you Richard.
Richard has been teaching me for several months now and I have mastered many songs and more confidence.From being a complete and utter novice at playing an instrument.
I'm beginning to understand more.music theory & site reading. Richard is patient, knowledgeable and offers excellent instruction.
Id highly recommend him as a teacher!
