My name is Brian and I'm a qualified music teacher based in Ryde. If you live on the Isle of Wight and would love to play the guitar, ukulele or keyboards, I will help you quickly improve and reach the next level.

Acoustic and Electric Guitar

If you have always wanted to play the electric, acoustic or classical guitar, here you will find the best and quickest solution. Whether you are a complete beginner, trying to teach yourself but getting nowhere or a guitarist looking to expand your playing techniques, with me you will achieve your musical goals. I'm a professional musician, classically trained and have over 20 years teaching experience. I provide the most effective tuition for a wide choice of styles including Rock, Blues, Metal, Folk, Pop, Rock & Roll, Progressive, Country, Modern, Classical and Spanish.

Unlike the guitar lessons where you just learn to strum chords or play one style, I will show you how to play your favourite types of music, create your own songs and develop all the techniques you need to reach a higher playing level. From the very start you will discover how to play the instrument correctly and step-by-step master finger-picking, plectrum methods, chord progressions, rhythms, scales, timing, melody, harmony, lead, famous riffs, correct finger positions and how to improvise. I also teach theory, tablature, notation and the skills to play lead or rhythm guitar in a band.

Whether you want to reach advanced level, explore other musical styles, perform in a band, study for grade exams or just play the guitar for an enjoyable new hobby, don't miss a great opportunity to start taking lessons. Your playing skills will rapidly improve and you will learn far more than trying to teach yourself. No matter what your age or ability, playing the guitar is exciting, it brings a lot of pleasure and is one of the most creative things you can do.

Over the last decade or so the ukulele has become popular with all age groups and there has never been a better time to learn. Take lessons and you will develop all the skills to transform your playing including finger-picking, chords, rhythms, scales, melody, harmony, chord progressions, timing, correct finger positions and improvisation. I will also show you how to play a large choice of songs. The ukulele is a great instrument to play solo, as a duet and with others in a ukulele group. They are portable, versatile and not expensive to buy.


Whether you are a beginner, making no progress teaching yourself or wish to improve your keyboard skills, take lessons and I will show you everything you need to play a wide range of music. At your own pace you will learn how to play basic inverted and arpeggiated chords, right hand melodies, rhythms, timing, harmony, scales, improvisation many popular songs and how to construct your own music. I also teach how to read music and use the keyboard with a computer.



Playing a musical instrument is rewarding, great fun, it can provide a career and increases overall well-being.

It is never too late to start and there is no better way to learn than getting professional tuition.
