Guitar lessons

Guitar lessons are available for children (age 7 to 18) and adults of all abilities from complete beginner to grade 5 standard. For students wishing to take examinations, I will take them through the syllabuses of either Rock School, ABRSM (The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) or Trinity. Examinations take place in Kendal or Carlisle.

I can accompany my own pupils and charge a set fee of £10.00 for this service.

I can help students with music required for school (e.g. GCSE or A-level compositions) or concert performances.

I will provide opportunities for performing.

I teach a wide variety of styles and tailor each lesson to suit the individual. Those who wish to play for fun are just as welcome to come and will still make the same progress as those doing exams. With expert tuition and strong motivation each student will gain a high sense of achievement and confidence.

Lessons are on a weekly basis.


As a Fellow of the ISM (Incorporated Society of Musicians) I provide lessons under a contract which protects both the teacher and the student.
