Professional Musician and Tutor in Cardiff, Offering Tuition in Guitar, Ukulele, Songwriting/Composition, Music Theory, and GCSE & A Level Music Tutoring

Methodology

I offer the following tuition:

Guitar — electric (beginner to advanced), acoustic (beginner to advanced), and classical (up to grade 8)

Ukulele (beginner to advanced, casual or RGT grades)

Songwriting, composition, and arranging (beginner to advanced, for any instrument or combination)

GCSE, A Level, and university level tutoring towards performances, exams, and coursework/compositions

Conservatoire/music college/university audition prep

I currently teach all ages, from children as young as 4 up to adults 65+, and I cater each and every lesson to your unique learning needs. I create high quality bespoke teaching materials for each lesson, and I teach to whatever goal you might have, whether it's casual playing, grade exams, or a desire to be the best skiffle-punk-cabaret fusion guitarist/songwriter you can be! Exam boards covered are: Trinity, ABRSM, RGT, and Rock School. I've also taught KS1 and KS2 music lessons in primary schools. Every student I have taught towards grade exams has received a distinction.

My musical skills were honed at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, where I achieved both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in music composition, while continuing to perform and teach as a guitarist. While there, I received dedicated instrumental tuition training from some of the country's top teachers. I have a broad and in-depth knowledge of music performance and composition, music theory, conducting, and instrumental teaching. In 2015, I won the Cory Band Composition Prize.

As a composer, my works have been performed all over the world by the likes of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Ensemble de Cuivres Jurassien, Royal Danish Academy of Music, and Music Theatre Wales, among many others. I specialise in contemporary composition and song in all its forms.

If you want effective and rewarding tution from a reliable professional musician at a time and place that suits you, do please get in touch any time.

Background

Hello! I'm Lew. I'm a professional guitarist, singer-songwriter, composer, and tutor based in Cardiff.
Until recently, I ran a successful music tutoring business in London. Now that I've moved back to Cardiff, I'm looking for new students to turn into expert musicians!

I've been playing music since the age of 5 and I've been teaching for 10 years. I perform regularly across the UK playing guitar, ukulele, and singing as one half of my musical comedy duo and as part of a band. I'm a Registry of Guitar Tutors (London College of Music) registered tutor and have a 5 star rating on First Tutors.

Lew is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to music, and his passion for playing the guitar makes learning from him an absolute pleasure. He is always patient and helpful and is great to learn from.

Rhydian

Lew gives interesting and fun guitar lessons. I had been playing guitar for quite some time before I came to Lew, my aim was to improve my playing. I was shocked at the amount he taught me in such a short space of time, my playing has improved dramatically!
He’s patient, makes the lesson fun and is very reliable and punctual.
