Classical Guitar Lessons - Derek Hasted - Havant Hampshire

Personal tuition - Structured syllabus - Qualified & Experienced - Patient & Professional - Complete beginners welcome

Competitive tuition fees - every lesson prepared in advance just for you

Some teachers won't reveal their fees until you contact them. It puts you on the spot. I don't work like that.

I belong to the ISM, the UK's professional body for working musicians. My fees ...

  • compare favourably with other ISM teachers with my level of experience, qualifications & resources
  • include preparation before your lesson to tailor what I teach, specifically for you
  • include record-keeping after your lesson to ensure you receive a structured and complete syllabus
  • include access to soundfiles, study notes, email assistance, student social events are much more

(You may find cheaper lessons, but I'm always virtually full and my retention rate is unusually high)
