Guitar Lessons

Happy to take any age, 6 to 96 and any ability from beginner to advanced

Whether you wish to play classical finger-style (traditional classical repertoire or popular songs) or you just want to play chords fluently I can get you playing using the correct technique so that you will be satisfied with your progress whatever your natural ability.



My background

Started playing the guitar at 16 having first played Violin & piano. On moving to Salisbury I was taught by Wendy Partridge and went through the AB grades going on to pass Grade 8. I then continued my studies on various residential & master classes with Julian Byzantine, John Mills & Gerald Garcia, while also performing & teaching.


Having taught for many years I can tell you that no matter what your natural ability, if you have the motivation you will be able. Talent comes in when someone is prepared to pay to come and hear you play!
