Neil - Putney Bridge - Guitar

Methodology

I'm a friendly, dedicated guitar and music theory teacher based in Putney.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I cover all styles of guitar playing. Jazz, Blues and Funk through to Hard Rock, Pop and Finger-style. In each of these styles I teach Improvisation, Technique, Theory and Sight-Reading.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a BA(Hons) Degree in Music with Instrumental Teaching.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £30 per hour for 1-1 lessons. 30 minute lessons can be arranged at a cost of £18. I always provide one free consultation lesson as I know finding the right teacher is essential. Please feel free to contact me with inquiries for group lessons or special circumstances.

- Where do you teach?

I live in Fulham, London. I teach at students homes although other arrangements can be made if this is not possible. I am able to travel to Wimbledon, Richmond, Clapham, SW London, SE London, West London and West Central London and similar areas. Please feel free to contact me about travelling distances and adding travel costs to lesson fees.

- When are you available?

I am very flexible and will try to make myself available to suit the needs of the student.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach students of any age. I can teach Guitar from Beginner-Advanced Level (Postgraduate Level) Jazz Theory/Composition from Beginner-Advanced Level (Postgraduate Level) Bass Guitar from Beginner-Advanced Level (Postgraduate Level).

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I can prepare students for exams in both performance and theory should they wish to take them.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

The key factor of learning to play an instrument is enjoyment, it should be fun! It is a skill that will stay with you all of your life, and in return for the practice, dedication and patience it takes to learn an instrument, the rewards will be endless. My years of teaching experience has shown me that everybody learns differently. Therefore I tailor my lessons to suit each individual student so that they will get out of it what they want, and have fun doing so!

I have experience playing a range of venues from small clubs through to festivals in various styles of music from Jazz through to Rock. I have been teaching privately for over 6 years and have experience in teaching a large diversity of students in terms of both age and ability. I have taught in local schools. I teach 1-1 and group lessons.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Neil has been a great tutor for me. He has helped me in preparing pieces for my University auditions for which I was successful. I wanted to improve my jazz playing and theory before moving to University, and through some great teaching and practical application, Neil has considerably improved my confidence in performing in this musical idiom. Neil is a really nice, genuine guy, a trait reflected in his weekly lessons and with the fact that in his free time was willing to perform with me in a live event.

Neil is a patient and thoughtful teacher. He makes a point of finding pieces of music that appeal to our daughter and we are delighted with the progress she is making under his guidance.

Terry

Every time I heard a good guitarist I would promise myself to dust off my guitar and play again. This did not happen. I decided to engage a guitar teacher and to my delight, Neil came over to my house and inspired me to learn and play again. Neil's teaching skill and musical talent has given me a real appreciation of the guitar, my instrument will never gather dust again.

“We are delighted with Neil's electric guitar tutoring of our 12 year old son. Neil's approach is broad-based and comprehensive - covering a wide range of techniques from fingerpicking to rock/metal, music theory, and performance pieces versus improvisation/jamming. His tutoring style is flexible and adaptable to the specific preferences of our son, thereby retaining his interest and enthusiasm. Neil is a really nice chap – and that personality is key in making him an excellent tutor.”

Edna

Through Neil's tutoring, our son has managed to achieve his Grade 8 in Bass Guitar. Neil has expanded his musical listening as well as incorporating useful elements of theory, sight reading and improvisation, in a fun and practical context. He is continuing to do high level bass work as well as start work on doing an electric guitar grade
