Guitar Lessons in Reading Berkshire

From absolute beginner to pro level acoustic and electric guitar lessons

BEGINNER – INTERMEDIATE – ADVANCED

  • Guitar Lessons For All Levels

    My 1 to 1 guitar lessons in Reading Berkshire are suitable for all guitarists, at any level.  I am equally as experienced in teaching complete beginner guitarists who have never played the guitar before as well as highly skilled performing artists who are looking for transformation.

  • More Than Just Guitar Lessons

    Learning the guitar is just part of a process, staying motivated over a long period of time, requires skills at a whole new level. It is not just about talking or motivating you to practice, I will share real tools that will change the way you learn and help you stay on track with your goals.

  • Complete Learning System

    I will teach you very cool and effective techniques that will change the way you approach playing the guitar. The lessons are structured and will help you bring your guitar skills to the next level.

  • Fully Equipped Teaching Studio

    Lessons take place in my home studio, which has been designed as an inspiring place to learn and master the guitar. You can test different guitars, amps, pedals and record your first demo. I use the latest technology which makes lessons really fun!

  • Relaxed Teaching Style

    My teaching style is different.  I focus on you, your goals and I design lessons that fit around you and your lifestyle. I know that you don’t have the time to practicer for hours, so I will teach you how to get the best results in the time you have.

  • Get Amazing Results

    I have been teaching the guitar for over 15 years and playing and performing for much longer. I have taught hundreds of students and have solved many unique problems. You will see results starting from your very first lesson.

  • Any Age Or Profession

    Your age is not important. My youngest student is 10 and my oldest is 75. It is never too late to have fun playing the guitar. Many of my students start guitar lessons around retirement age, because it is a fun and very rewarding hobby. I teach students, doctors, bankers, plumbers, architects, bus drivers, professional singers and musicians … because anyone can have fun playing the guitar.
