My teaching method involves using popular songs or songs chosen by the individual student.
My first aim is to have the student playing a complete song they enjoy by the end of the first lesson.
My approach is more from the creative & practical side to begin with to encourage fun learning, i then introduce all the academic material as we go along so it is easier to comprehend & so the student doesn't lose interest.
I teach using chord boxes & guitar tablature & i teach many different styles but mainly mainstream pop & rock are the most requested.
I also teach songwriting & i have a designated recording studio in my house to record & publish songs for students who want to go down this route.
I teach the pentatonic scale for learning how to construct & play solos.
I teach everyone twelve bar blues as a tool to use for "jamming" with other guitarists & as a building block for songwriting.
I also teach many different strumming & soloing techniques.
Wedding singer, stage performer, songwriter, musician & recording artist for thirty years, registered, DBS certificated guitar tutor (RGT) for ten years to over one hundred adults & children.
Teaching mainly individual students but i also teach in pairs & parent/child combinations, which has proved to be very successful.
Guy has been teaching my daughter guitar for almost 4 years. When she first started she wasn't able to play at all but now thanks to Guy's patience and encouragement she plays the guitar and ukulele like a pro, sings and writes her own music which Guy has even helped her record. Probably the best guitar tutor EVER!!
Guy teaches well - to your pace and ability. I learned all the basics and played along to some great songs.
Guy is talented and the lessons were fun!
Guy makes lessons fun and is a very good teacher
Guy is a friendly reliable and fantastic guitar teacher. He has a lovely rapport with kids and parents and you won’t get much better than him. He teaches in a fun and enthusiastic modern way 10/10
I've known guy since childhood and he has developed into an accomplished musician and tutor,I wouldn't hesitate in recommending him for guitar lessons for children or adults.
For a tutor to convey a message calmly and without pressure and to simply make music fun is an art within itself .
He's a top bloke .
I had always wanted to learn to play guitar, but never seemed to have the time. Also being left handed seemed to be a stumbling block, as many guitar shops I visited were not too helpful and recommended I learn right handed - bit difficult if your left handed. I was recommended to Guy and his approach was brilliant, as lessons were like looking in a mirror with my guitar due to he being right handed. His aptitude to learning is all about having fun with the music you like. I am also an older student in my 50's and I have learnt the basics and can string a few songs together now thanks to Guy.
Guy is brilliant! He is really patient and take time to explain and teach. He exudes warmth and kindness. I cannot recommend Guy enough to teach both young and old!
Guy is a great tutor, he just knows music, from all his years of experience gigging and entertaining!
My lessons with him were fun and confidence building, I've just contacted him this week to book some more.
You will not be disappointed!!
Wow Guy is awesome. Great teacher, freedom around songs to learn and styles that suit. We do a mum/son lesson which is enormous fun and we have combined acoustic and electric guitar depending what we are playing.... we have learned sooooo much in the last year! Highly recommended.
