Dust down that guitar during this difficult time

Hi everyone – I hope you have all been keeping safe and well during this difficult period.

For those of you with a guitar gathering dust in the corner, especially if you are still having to work from home, why not turn a negative into a positive and start to have some lessons.

I have now restarted subject to social distancing guidelines. My 30 minute lessons are flexible and an ideal break and change in the day. Weather permitting I am happy to teach in the garden.

Please feel free to email or telephone me for more information.

New year, new challenge

While there are many on-line tools, such as YouTube, that offer advice and tips on how to play songs on the guitar, there is no substitute for a one to one lesson.

Learning the guitar is a very personal thing as everybody is different and learns at a different pace. Whilst a lot of on-line lessons can tell you the ‘right thing to do’, it is often what not to do and where you are going wrong that a teacher can help you with.

I tailor all my lessons to individual needs and the songs that you want to learn to play. Please see my website for further details or feel free to call me.

Leave the Xbox and grab a guitar!

There is no substitute for one on one guitar lessons and I offer a practical modern approach which is fun and a great way for children to gain other skills. It helps develop their coordination, concentration and overall confidence. I use the Rockschool syllabus which have great versions of modern songs and children get a real sense of pride and achievement when they pass the exams. The first book is the Debut one and I have never not had a student pass it first time and they get a really cool certificate!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas and a happy new year to all my students and many thanks for the cards, presents and continued custom.

If you are still searching for that last minute Christmas present, are having a guitar for Christmas, or are buying a guitar for a loved one at Christmas, why not consider some personalised guitar lessons?

Songhoy Blues

Despite a very wet summer in West Bridgford, I have been seeking out different blues artists and gone back to the real roots of the blues. I am currently listening to a group of talented musicians from Mali, Africa called Songhoy Blues. Raised on a diet of Hip-Hop, R&B and Hendrix, their album “Music in Exile” is an exciting addition to the world of blues music.
