your exisitng techniques, learn a new style, sing and play

Unlike lessons covering just the basics, I teach all
aspects of guitar playing from complete beginner to performance
level including finger-style and plectrum methods, rhythms,
lead, riffs, chords, chord progressions, melody, harmony,
timing, phrasing, scales, arpeggios, tempo, how to play
popular songs, improvise and create your own music.
guitar is versatile and a great instrument for playing any
style of music including Rock, Blues, Pop, Soul, Metal,
Rock'n'roll, Reggae, Funk, Indie, Traditional, Folk, Jazz,
Gospel, Country, Dance, Progressive, Classical, Spanish
and more. No matter what your age or ability, if you want
to develop the guitar style you enjoy and make your playing
sound impressive, it's never too late and there's no quicker
way to learn than getting professional tuition. I also teach
