SKYPE OR ZOOM GUITAR LESSONS Given By Experienced Secondary School Teacher based in London

Methodology

Come and take guitar lessons with me online via Skype or Zoom (I am more than happy to use other platforms too!)

Whether you are a beginner or an intermediate guitarist, I offer coaching that will focus on your specific goals and will move at your particular pace. These lessons are for kids or adults, private or in groups.

I focus on all sorts of styles: Rock, punk, indie, pop, blues, etc

Please do contact me if you want more information!


A 30 minute session will:

Improve your confidence and skill of playing in general - Boost up your ability to play chords and scales - Help you master a particular song that you'd love to play - Develop your strumming so that it's more in time - Try out duets with me where you can practice your soloing or chord playing - If you'd like to try singing and playing at the same time, then we can also advance in that area.

Experience

Hi, my name's Tom. I'm 33 and I'm a qualified secondary school teacher in Religious Studies. (I've also regularly taught English and Geography to Year 7 students.)

I have 6 years teaching experience in secondary schools in East London.

I play guitar in a band. We write our own songs and perform them live. We did a European tour in Summer 2017 where we drove from the UK all the way to the East coast of Bulgaria. We stopped off at any major city we happened to be driving through, headed to a cool part of town and unpacked all our gear. A RAPID 20 mins setup time to then deliver some rock music to the locals on the street/town square! Since our return to London, we've been writing new songs: working on a series of EPs and also music videos to accompany them.

Tom is a great tutor, he loves music, and has experience performing and teaching. I would really recommend Tom as his experience as a tutor makes him professional but super friendly and kind, he is able to play different styles and can adapt to your level. Thanks Tom!

Awesome teacher! Fun & professional with lots of great experience. Can't recommended enough :)

Thomas has gained solid experience in both contemporary guitar and secondary school teaching. His calm relatable manner I believe will come across well on Superprof. Also his understanding of pacing, gained through teaching a mixed ability religious education class in London will help to heighten learning potential. He has also provided a high level on insight when analysing the various religions of the world.
