What makes me different? Many things…..

1. The environment! You will love it, it’s clean, safe and obviously so. You are not being taught out of a shed, or the living room with family members walking through. I have a large studio where you can sing if you like, stand if you want and where you are recorded and can make use of the high levels of equipment I have. There is no doubt that good amps, equipment and sound fill you with confidence and get the most out of you. In addition you can play LOUD here. The neighbours are a long way off!

Secondly,Me! Well you knew I would say that but basically you get a wholly professional service from someone who has been involved in music all his life. My philosophy is all about getting you to play the sort of music that you want to play, not what I want to play.

I do train students along the Grade lines and do encourage my students to go down the grade route. Grades are not everything mind you but they do provide an excellent framework for increasing your knowledge as you learn and fine tune your skills and improve your dexterity.

Currently I have a 100% pass rate on exams, one day that will change but still, lets hope that’s a way off right now.

All materials other than backing tracks are provided free of charge and are copyright free and of good quality. There’s no scrappy pieces of paper here. You will find that I have detailed song notes for many songs that will allow you to be playing along to old standards and new songs without mistakes within weeks of starting

As you can see, you can sit, stand and even sing if you want in a good clean airy environment with quality kit. The learnings fun as well as professional and informative.

And finally, you can be recorded using all the quality effects and amps here and take your work home to either work on or to show your friends, family or to send off as demo’s to whoever you want. As a Logic Pro Certified Pro Engineer I can help you to get the most out of what you’ve got.

Whatever your age, Come and learn Electric guitar with me. My customers are all ages and like all types of music. Here you learn by playing, the lesson is all about playing whether its learning chords or lead improvisation.

Here we spend the lessons focussing on your musical desires. Lead playing involves learning skills, techniques and improving your physical dexterity whilst playing in key and understanding your scales and arpeggios and how to apply them in a song context. learning chords is through learning real songs, not dreary chord charts.
