I always aim to tailor lessons around the needs of the student and what it is they want out of music. For a beginner that might mean teaching them songs by bands that they enjoy in a simplified format and avoid getting bogged down by unnecessary theory or scale practice (though a certain amount of these elements are useful). Whereas a more advanced player looking for specific direction might want to study compositional aspects of music they enjoy, or learn to improvise in a certain style. I have an extensive collection of lesson materials that I have developed over the years as a teacher and will often edit or design new lesson plans to fit a student's needs. Learning an instrument can at times feel like a difficult process, so it is important to streamline the process so that the student can enjoy playing the music they love.
I have been teaching for over 10 years, having started whilst taking my degree in music. During that time I have taught for several music schools, primary schools and privately. I teach Rockschool Grades for electric guitar, RGT for acoustic and Trinity for classical guitar. I am comfortable teaching all abilities ranging from begginers to more advanced pupils looking to improve specific areas such as composition, improvising and theory.
I also have experience transcribing music for publication and often use these skills to design lesson plans using music software.
If you would like me to travel to you to teach then I may need to charge slightly more depending on the distance.
I think Dominic is an amazin teacher and I would recommend him to anyone, with confidence! He's used effective teaching methods at all levels that make learning enjoyable and fast. I've found him trustworthy and punctual, even during the pandemic, when our lessons have been able to continue as normal.
I worked with Dom for many years as a tutor at a tuition centre and as a performer in a professional functions band. He is really friendly and has a great way of teaching and explaining both simple techniques and complex concepts. Dom has an expansive knowledge of guitar and music theory. I would recommend his services to anyone looking to learn guitar as a beginner or as an advanced player looking to take their skills to the next level.
My son has been having guitar lessons with Dominic for over a year now. During that time we’ve gone from home tuition, to online tuition (lockdown) to tuition at Dominics location.
As well as being an excellent tutor Dominic is very flexible with constant movement of dates and times to accommodate our flexible schedules, often at very short notice.
I’ve been hard pressed to find a better more economical guitar tutor in the local area.
Another quirky factor is that my son often move through a range of musical styles at the moment, from thrash metal all the way through to folk! Dominic is able to accommodate all styles and his advice is always valued. Most recommended.
