My name is Benjamin Woodbridge and I have 20 years experience playing the guitar in a variety of different styles including classical, rock, pop, blues & flamenco.

Methodology

Whatever you want to learn I am here to guide you in getting the best sound out of this instrument.

What I can teach you:

- Grades (ABRSM, Trinity Guildhall, Rockschool)
- Scale and chord knowledge
- Songs and song structures (pop, rock, soul, jazz etc)
- Music theory: beginner to advanced (classical & jazz)
- Fretboard knowledge
- Sight reading
- Ear training
- Finger style and plectrum picking techniques

Here are what some of my students say about my teaching:

Ollie -

As someone who's played acoustic guitar for a few years, I
was keen to widen my range and learn the classical style. Ben was patient & concise in introducing me to this new technique, pitching the lessons at just the right level to complement my ability. I found that I improved quickly, which is testament to Ben's fun and engaging tuition. He's a highly skilled player and teacher who I'll definitely use again when I return to the UK!

Nadene -

Ben has made guitar lessons fun, and it is something our son looks forward to doing each week. There is the right mix of laughing and teaching. Ben has kept the lessons interesting and encouraging, and he inspires our son to actually want to practice! Our son said, he is the greatest teacher he's ever had. We are really pleased and highly recommend Ben

Pascale -

Benjamin’s flair and ease with the guitar inspired Khyrham and infused the lessons with a youthful “cool” factor, Khyrham’s much older, formal and traditional school tutor was incapable of.

Benjamin took on my son, when Khyrham’s interest in guitar was beginning to falter and his confidence in his musical abilities was eroding, and managed to turned things around in a very short time, animating the lessons and rebuilding Khyrham’s enthusiasm to such an extent that Khyrham went on to succeed in passing subsequent grades in a single term.

Nadya -

Ben has been teaching our 8 year old son to play guitar since October 2014. Apart from the great teaching skills Ben has managed to totally inspire our son to want to become a a great guitar player. The weekly guitar lesson has become something our son really looks forward to. After just half a year of teaching our son joined the guitar band in school and is getting ready to pass his first grade.
