I am currently have space available for new students!
I am a guitarist based in Stretford offering guitar lessons from my home studio or my workspace near Gorton train stattion.
I have played for 18 years and taught guitar for the last 5 years. I have a PGDE in post 16 education and have taught both children and adults guitar. My background is in playing in DIY and experimental rock bands and some of these projects were featured on Radio 1, Radio 6 Music, BBC1 and Resonance FM. My current live work focuses on free improvisation and I’ve been lucky enough to play concerts of this music in London, Paris, Berlin, Tokyo, New York and Moscow amongst others. I also work on a sound art project developing sound to light electronics, walks, installations & workshops called Noise Orchestra.
Depending what you are interested in learning my guitar teaching method is driven by a mixture of developing your technical skills framed with teaching you songs in the style of the music you are interested in learning. Most of my students learn technical skills and rock, pop and indie type song material; some work with me on improvising skills drawing on my performance knowledge in that field.
First lesson/assessment/meet up of 30 minutes is £10. This is so we can get to know each other a bit, see if we get along as student and teacher and discuss the kind of things you are interested in learning and I can start to form an idea of how to get you where you want to be. After this lessons are £25 per hour or £15 per half an hour. Lessons are cancellelable up until 24 hours in advance.
