If you are looking to learn guitar then taking lessons are a fun and fast way to become an accomplished guitar player. In the long run guitar lessons will make you a much more rounded and advanced musician, and will get you on the right track much quicker than any other method of guitar training.

Experience

I play in numerous bands here in Chichester, including the Tom Belbin Trio, a successful jazz trio that plays regularly all over the country. I have been playing for close to 20 years, and have a BMus and MMus in music performance. I have played in front of large audiences of well over 500 people at a time, with members of the rizzle kicks, scouting for girls and more. I have headlined my own concerts and have performed in every setting imaginable. I have recorded my own compositions and have extensive knowledge of songwriting.

I have been teaching for 6 years, including spending a year in New Zealand teaching and playing. I teach at Chichester College, have taught for band workshops all over the south coast, and have put students right through their grades with 100% success rate to date.

Yes

Ian rates are very reasonable and he displays excellent and thorough knowledge of the guitar, My technique has improved and Ian has been very helpful in getting me composing my own chord progressions and writing my own songs.”

Ian has a great way of explaining the magic of guitar!! He is very patient (needs to be with me!) and is very good at understanding what you feel you would like to accomplish in playing guitar. His rates are very reasonable and the lessons themselves are very informative and fun by combining music theory and playing. He is very knowledgable and i would recommend him to anyone wanting to learn the guitar.”

Ian Mayes is a talented guitarist, arranger and teacher. He incorporates a wide range of influences into his playing and has developed high level of technical skill along with a satisfyingly individual voice. His work with other musicians is always tasteful, both as a lead and rhythm player. As a teacher, Ian inspires students with his infectious enthusiasm and wide range of teaching tools and is able to get the best out of anyone who wants to develop their skills as a guitarist or bassist.”
