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, qualification & 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 will find teachers offering lessons for less, but I am always virtually full and my retention rate is unusually high...
