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

Exciting opportunities...

Guitar shouldn't be as insular a hobby as some people make it.
I can make your introduction into the world of guitar as fulfilling as it's possible to be.

Ensemble guitar

Although guitar can be played solo, there's a wealth of music for guitar ensembles. Joining an ensemble sharpens your solo playing by improving your rhythm, your listening skills, and by adding a social side to your hobby where mutual encouragement will lift you higher. I run a unique ensemble you can join...

Performance opportunities

I run a summer social every year - an informal concert plus food & drink. More...

  • You can have the chance to play a solo or duet

I support the local Portsmouth Music Festival. More...

  • I can coach you if you want to compete, or accompany you in student/teacher duets

Exam opportunities

It is entirely your choice whether you study for the eight "graded exams" that the Music Schools offer.

  • If you want to do a grade, I can supply the appropriate music and submit your entry, at cost
  • I can coach you for the exam as part of your lessons
