Vacancies

I am usually able to find a mutually convenient time to fit in new students.  Just let me know your needs and I’ll do what I can to accommodate you.

lessons for adults

Kids lessons are scheduled to fit in with the school term with an average of 12 x 30 minute one to one lessons per term, with breaks for half terms and holidays. 

I provide a lot of music and song sheets etc free of charge but occasionally there will be the need to buy music books as students advance.

Lessons are always tailored to match a child’s age and their individual ability.  For beginners I prefer to teach guitar through fun pieces/songs rather than repetitive scales and exercises.  They are more useful later on.

I take a lot of care to look after my pupil’s technique and musicianship as they develop but in order to make steady progress on guitar, students need to be able to play their guitar at least three times a week.

Adults can opt for the same arrangement as kids i.e. weekly 30 minute lessons however some students prefer to go for a 1 hour lesson which is discounted.   Also not all adults want to take a six week break from their guitar lessons in the Summer, so special arrangements can be made for adults and advanced juniors at holiday times.

Mature students are most welcome and lessons are always designed around the individual.




Vouchers for Christmas/birthdays

I am often asked if I can do a course of lessons as a present and this is no problem.  I can arrange to send  a voucher for lessons and offer a generous discount for lessons booked and paid in advance.
