Hello and welcome to my website. I am a guitar teacher from Peterborough providing guitar lessons to people of all ages and abilities. I provide guitar tuition to people in and around the Peterborough area and remote online-guitar lessons to people from across the UK and Europe. No matter what your age or ability, I have the guitar lessons to make you a better guitarist and musician.
My mission is to assist people in reaching their full potential, finding and exploring their own path working in a way that opens up their musical creativity and ability. I teach with respect, compassion and empathy, view people as meaningful unique individuals and I work creatively with the persons own interests, goals and aims.
Complete beginners learning their first notes, riffs and chords are very welcomed. I also teach intermediate and advanced guitarists of all ages and backgrounds. As you may sense from my own music, I specialise in teaching advanced rock guitar techniques. Lessons are available for electric guitar, acoustic guitar and bass guitar. I teach instrumental grades from Debut Grade to Grade 8 for award bodies such as Rockschool.
As of 2021 my training and experience includes BA (hons) Degree in Contemporary Music, Professional Graduate Certificate in Music (PGCE), Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling (Ad Dip Psy C), Music A Level and Rockschool Grade 8 Distinction in Guitar. I have gigged across Europe and the UK with British hand rock band Sons of Kal-el, metal band Proto Inferno and UK progressive metal band SynaptiK. I am DBS checked and as a member of the Musicians Union have Public Liability Insurance. I have been teaching guitar for over 15 years. I keep up to date with learning myself and continual professional development (CPD).
