I think most of us have now come to the realisation that COVID is not going away anytime soon, and that we are all need to learn to live with it. It is important to not stop doing the things we want to do, whilst doing what we can to stay safe.
I am fully vaccinated and have had the booster jab. I am happy to do lessons wearing a mask if requested. I am also happy to teach if you have not been vaccinated, but would ask that you inform me of this so that we can both wear facemasks.
Don’t let COVID stop you learning a new skill – book guitar lessons today!
Now that we are getting back to some kind of normality after a difficult 18 months, learning the guitar is a great way to relax and have some time to yourself in the midst of a busy life – all beneficial to your mental health. Not only that, but it is a great confidence builder, especially for children.
I am double jabbed, practice social distancing and happy to wear a mask during lessons if required.
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.
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.
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 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?

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.
If you are looking for something a bit different, check these boys out!
Just sat in a cold, windy (August!!) West Bridgford listening to “Electric Ladyland” by Jimi Hendrix. If you have never heard this album before I highly recommend you check it out.
The iconic “Voodoo Chile” is perhaps one of the best examples of blistering blues rock guitar playing.
