Children
Children from the age of 6 are welcome to start learning. The guitar is taught as a whole to equip the student with every aspect of guitar playing/musical style. Regardless of what type of guitar the student starts on they will be taught the right techniques to play on the 3 main types of guitar - the electric, acoustic & classical.
As well as teaching popular rock/blues/pop songs to develop a student’s playing skills, I also teach the student to read music, which often gets neglected if not introduced at the right stage.

Teaching Method
Subjects Covered
Specific Electric, Acoustic & Classical guitar techniques, scales & arpeggios, music theory, sight reading, fingerstyle & pick techniques, tapping, improvising, composition & arrangement.

Songs are used to help develop specific techniques and increase chord vocabulary. Full backing or drum tracks are used to develop time keeping and to give experience of playing in a band setting. Recording is also used to aid the student.
