Learn classical guitar with an experienced, qualified teacher in west central London.

Methodology

Hi, I'm an experienced and highly qualified teacher of the classical guitar, based in Little Venice near Warwick Avenue tube. I'm used to teaching beginners, but have also taught up to Diploma level. I teach students of all ages. I'm very patient with my students as I'm aware that people progress at different speeds. I'm happy for students to work towards exams or to learn for their own enjoyment. As a qualified music teacher, I also teach music theory as well as guitar.

Experience

I've been teaching for over 25 years and studied at Trinity College of Music for four years where I received my LTCL Diploma in Classical Guitar Teaching. I am a fully qualified music teacher as well, as I have BEd in Music. I used to teach at the Spanish Guitar Centre near Leicester Square. All my students who have taken grade or diploma exams have passed, about 70% of whom with a merit or distinction. I'm a member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians, and have a recent DBS Certificate.
