I don't have a guitar. How much do they cost? Where do I get one?

I can recommend guitars to suit every calibre of player and every pocket, ranging from £100 to £2000. I can recommend good shops.

When can I start?

If you enjoy your trial lesson, you can start as soon as you like - paying pro-rata till the end of the current term, and then continuing in full terms.

What are your terms and conditions?

I charge by the term so that you reserve a block of my time. See my fees page.

Easter sometimes alters the Spring and Summer term lengths but I try to schedule three 10-week terms, with a break at half-term.

What about music and strings?

I can provide music at cost and strings at a discount, to save you time & effort.

I can't read music, is that a problem?

Not at all - I can teach you - I have tricks up my sleeve to make the learning easy!

I'm left-handed - shall I get a left-handed guitar?

Please wait till after your free trial lesson - there is more to this than you might realise...

I haven't got a musical bone in my body, is that a problem?

It's more likely that you haven't tried making, rather than listening to, music - it's very different!

Do you have any vacancies right now?

The situation is always changing. Contact me via the webform or text me on 07376 808 228
Evenings book up quickly, but I can often fit you in during the day

Am I the right age to start?

If you're reading this, then yes!
I specialise in teaching adults. I've taught people in their seventies & eighties - the sky's the limit. I tailor the lessons to take account of stiff fingers and the need for a gentle pace.
