Tony - Cheddar and Shipham - Guitar

Methodology

Professional private guitar teacher with studio containing all digital effects, Roland drum kit, Keyboard and Digital recording with video if required to enable visual practise at home between lessons. Over 500 students have learned to play here in many different styles, the time taken to play depends on the enthusiasm and regular light practise at home, I do my best to please with musical choice and gear the lessons to each individual.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

All guitar styles, acoustic, classical, electric, bass, , Harmonica, Banjo, and Ukulele. Song writing and Composition. Studio demo and recording techniques. Music theory and grades to Grade 8 available if you choose but not essential also basic and beginner level from 4 + years to over 60 years of age. A trial session will determine if you or your child will respond to playing an instrument, I find the Ukulele is ideal for very young beginners.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

35 years experience playing in various bands and solo work around the UK, 12 years professional guitar tutor at all levels and with all styles from General playing to rock/shred and bass. For those who require grades there is Rockschool (Trinity College)and RGT (Registry of Guitar Tutors - London College of Music)
available, pass rate 100%

- How much do you charge?

My studio rates are £30.00 per hour and discounted at various times of the year subject to personal arrangement, rates charged depend on number of pre-booked and prepaid sessions, and can be reduced to £20.00 per hour . Also 2 or more students up to max 5 can further reduce the individual cost to £10 per hour.

- Where do you teach?

Purpose built light and airy external Studio in Cheddar Gorge, well equipped with teaching books, DVDs, Video, recording, digital equipment all types of guitars and other musical instruments, heated and air conditioned. I am now available for tuition away from Cheddar within 1-2 hours travel. A traveling charge will be agreed in advance and it therefore may be practical to run a longer, say, 2-4 hour session once or twice monthly at your home, or designated place where any number of students can share the session and split the cost.

- When are you available?

Every week day of the year 8am - 9pm Saturdays by special arrangement sometimes but rarely on Sundays. School and Bank holidays included

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

All ages and all levels.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Plans being made via website at this moment but not yet available.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

My objective is to teach the correct way to play various styles of guitar playing, (along with professional shortcuts and techniques) for the many varied styles of music and also have fun learning. Although some theory and possibly the discipline of taking grades is helpful in many ways with some who request the more academic approach. The professional study courses and exams offered by Trinity college, Rockschool or RGT Registry of Guitar tutors grading system is available and can be considered a good structure to learning guitar, but not essential.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

Working solo and with duos and bands for public entertainment, and 12 years as a full time professional guitar tutor.

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

An application will be made later this year to satisfy forthcoming legal requirements for self employed, private tutors. I am a member of the Registry of Guitar Tutors.

- Where and with whom did you train?

Self-taught with the help of many professional guitar players and tutors over the last 40 years, vast experience gained working with other musicians.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Member of the Registry of Guitar Tutors.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

Many of my current and past students are now successfully playing in local bands and performing in public.
