Brian Exton Guitar Lessons

My name is Brian and I'm a highly skilled musician providing professional guitar tuition. Lessons take place at my home based music studio in Ryde where you will discover everything you need to become a much better guitarist.

Acoustic guitar

If you would love to get good at playing acoustic or electric guitar but don't know where to start, finding it frustrating teaching yourself or a player strugglling to make further progress, I will show you the correct way to quickly boost your skills and musical ability. Whether you want to reach advanced level, play guitar in a band, learn a new style, play music you listen to, use the guitar in computer based recording and music-making, entertain others or just take-up a creative new hobby for casual enjoyment, professional one-to-one tuition will guide you in the right direction and help you achieve your musical goals.

I have been successfully teaching the guitar from home and in places of education for more than 20 years and provide some of the most experienced tuition on offer. Unlike lessons only focusing on chord strumming, I provide a modern forward-looking approach that will help you develop all the musical aspects and techniques to play the guitar for a lifetime. Step-by-step you will learn both finger-style and plectrum methods, chords, triads, rhythms, lead, chord progressions, melody, harmony, riffs, timing, scales, improvisation, correct finger positions, how to play songs you enjoy, create your own music and use special effects.

Some instruments are best suited for playing just one or two musical styles although you can develop any style on the guitar including Rock, Blues, Pop, Soul, Metal, Rock'n'roll, Alternative,Traditional, Folk, Jazz, Gospel, Country, Progressive, Classical, Spanish and more. No matter what your age, ability or taste of music, to achieve the best possible results and make your guitar playing sound impressive, don't miss the opportunity to get high-quality tuition. I also teach ukulele, notation, tablature, theory of music and composition.
