Learn to play guitar by ear! Fun and engaging guitar lessons in Edinburgh.

Methodology

My approach to teaching is to make the lessons fun and break things down simply for my students. I teach popular/contemporary music so my focus will be more on developing musicality, rhythm and "good ears", than learning how to read music. My lesson plans are based around the music you like and we will be learning solos or piano/guitar parts by ear and jam along to your favourite songs! Improvisation is also a big part of my teaching and something I will help you discover intuitively first before we start delving into the topic of music theory.

Nicholas is not only an accomplished and highly experienced musician -he has that rare ability to teach 'patiently' throughout all levels too.
He has taken me from a complete musical 'novice' to now understand Music Theory and to start composing my own tracks on Logic Pro - Highly recommended !!!

My singing voice has always sounded and felt a bit strained. I struggled to reach the high notes and gain power in my voice, which often led to hoarseness. Now, after about 10 sessions with Nicholas, I feel much more relaxed when I sing, and I have gained more power and volume in my voice than I have ever had.

Nicholas is a great teacher. He manages to avoid all unnecessary complexity and explain the subject in a set of simple rules. I managed to improve my technique drastically in just a couple of months. In addition to this, Nicholas focuses as well on the songs I am struggling right now. Thus instead of singing Amazing Grace, as I did with the other teachers, we spend time usefully on the material I need right now.
