My name is Brian and I'm a professional guitarist providing high-quality one-to-one tuition from my home based studio in Ryde.

If you live on the Isle of Wight and would love to play electric, acoustic or classical guitar, take lessons with me and you will rapidly progress. Whether you're a complete beginner, trying to teach yourself but getting nowhere, want to learn a different style, play guitar in a band, reach advanced level, expand your existing skills or just play music for personal enjoyment, I have the expertise to guide you in the right direction and help you become a successful guitarist.

I'm a highly-skilled musician and a qualified guitar teacher with over 20 years experience teaching, playing in bands, recording and writing music. Unlike the lessons that only cover the basics, strumming or one method of playing, I teach up to advanced level and specialise in all the essential skills including finger-picking and plectrum styles, lead, chords, rhythm, timing, scales, tempo, harmony, melody and a wide-range of techniques to vastly improve your playing. You can also learn how to play many great songs, make your own music and play along to rhythms and backing tracks.

No matter what your age or previous musical experience, it is never too late to start playing the guitar. Lessons will be structured to suit your requirements and you can learn how to play Rock, Blues, Heavy Metal, Traditional, Folk, Country, Ambient, Classical, Progressive, Latin or Spanish music. I also teach ukulele, keyboards, notation, grade exams, theory of music, how to record on a computer and play rhythm or lead guitar in a band.



Playing music on a guitar is creative, brings a lifetime of pleasure, increases overall well-being and can become a career.
