Everyone can play the guitar, watch some of my beginner students in this video below, all different ages and abilities.

Here is another one of my advanced students who I've taught from a beginner.

I have taught many guitarists who have signed record deals and who are now playing their own music and playing gigs.

Here are some of the bands below, I taught members in both of these bands, who started to learn the guitar with me as beginners and are now carving out a career for themselves in the music industry.

Beginner Lessons 
This should be fun with no pressure
Learning basic chords, finger exercises, songs, this will usually take around 6 to 12 months depending on how much the student practises.

Advanced Lessons
There is always something new to learn on the guitar, even if you have been playing for over 10 or 20 years.
The next level of learning is about more advanced techniques (building speed,ear training and improvisation) and finding out what styles and direction of music the student would like to study. For example, if you are into rock music, I will focus on the specific techniques needed in that style of music, ensuring you get the most out of your lessons and more importantly, learning what YOU want to play.

Playing in a Band Lesson
This is for advanced and pro players
If you already play in a band, I can help you with getting a great guitar sound, how to work with other musicians, preparing for an audition, putting your own band together and work with you to become the guitarist you want to be.
Learning any instrument takes time and patience and it will not happen overnight.  The secret is to enjoy playing what you are learning at the time and letting your music progress naturally, setting only a couple of goals until you are ready to move on to the next level.
