Professional session guitarist gives guitar and music theory lessons in cheshire and online through skype

Methodology

I have a relaxed teaching style which allows the student to develop at their own pace and I encourage each student to have an input into their lesson structure in order to develop their own style. I have many years experience as a pro performer and believe I know what it takes to succeed either on a professional level or just for fun. I have a real passion for teaching and believe that knowledge should be past on. Lessons can be one to one, group or online.

Background

I have been teaching for over 20 years having taught 1000+ students, many of whom have gone on to achieve degrees in music or become professional performers. I have taught a wide rage of people from young children through to pensioners looking to learn something new.
