2 more passes. Stan gets a Grade 3 Acoustic guitar Distinction and Callum gets a Grade 4 Acoustic Merit award, missing a distinction by a whisker.

Yes I still listen to full albums, not just singles or snippets. These days there’s quite often a lot of filler on CD’s with just a couple of great tracks on them. Here’s my best ones of the year. I’ve included links to Amazon but of course there’s other places to buy them I’ve chosen […]

Welcome to my Guitar Tuition website
Hi and welcome to my site. If you are looking for guitar lessons in the Stroud area then I hope that I can help you. I teach guitar, bass and music tech in Stroud, Chalford, Bussage and the surrounding villages.
My guitar teaching is done from my own studio just outside Stroud area or in schools across the county. I am a member of the highly respected Registry of Guitar Tutors Organisation and teach Guitar (that's Electric, Acoustic and Bass) and Music Technology from my private studio in Bisley and also at 10 schools in Stroud, Gloucester, Cheltenham and Costwolds area.
With me you will always find that the surroundings are clean and professional with the highest quality of equipment and service. I have helped people of all ages and experience to reach their musical goals. I teach up to Grade 6. Currently my youngest student is aged 7 and my oldest is Mary aged 82!
Naturally I have all the necessary CRBs for schools and private tuition together with all up to date Safeguarding certification plus Public Liability insurance through my membership of the Musicians Union.
Feel free to browse the pages here to see what's going on and if you want my services, drop me an email via this site and we'll see if we can get a program together that suits your requirements.
