Where do the lessons take place?
All guitar lessons take place at my home.
16 Byfield Close, Woodmancote. GL52
What are the lesson times?
Weekday start times 9.00am - 6.00pm, subject to availability. Also, Saturday / Sunday mornings from 9.30am.
What do the lessons consist of and what do they cost?
Each guitar lesson includes:
. A full hour of one-to-one tuition;
. Printed practice notes for you to keep;
. Free e-mail support between lessons.
After the initial free meeting the cost is £30 per lesson, pay-as-you-go.
You need only pay for one lesson at a time but each lesson must be paid for in advance and is for a specific date and time.
How often are the lessons?
Most students take a lesson every two weeks, but if cost or time is an issue, then go at your own pace.
I try to be as flexible as possible for people with busy lifestyles and/or limited funds.
If you work shifts, or irregular hours, we can arrange lessons to fit in with your schedules
Do you teach beginners?
Yes, anyone with a guitar, even if you've never played before, is very welcome. If you don't already have a guitar, then you will need to buy one before you can schedule a free meeting.
I do not sell or rent guitars but am happy to give unbiased advice on what to buy.
I also recommend a metronome or drum machine app on your phone, tablet or PC. This will help with rhythm practice.
What styles do you teach?
Most styles: pop,rock,funk, blues, jazz ....;pick and/or fingerstyle.
I don't teach specialist flamenco or classical (nylon strung) guitar technique.
I can also prepare & enter students for RGT /London College Of Music examinations - all grades.
What if I need to change the lesson date or time?
If you cannot attend, let me know before the lesson is due to start as any "no shows" will be charged for
There is no additional charge for rescheduling a lesson, but please note that I may ask for payment if lessons are repeatedly cancelled at short notice
When can I start?
Before booking the 1st lesson, I will invite you to a free introductory meeting, so that I can understand what you can already play & what you want to focus on learning.
