How we teach Guitar

I am Dan and a guitar teacher. I have been playing guitar since a young age and I am devoting myself to passing on my passion to the next generation of guitarists. I studied music performance and production at Oxford College for 2 years and have played multiple gigs with several bands in the surrounding area. If you are looking to learn a new instrument or take the skills you already have to the next level, I teach acoustic, electric and bass guitar to all ages and abilities. In the lessons we will cover a wide range of genres from rock, blues, pop, funk and everything between. We cover chords, scales and different playing techniques.


Benefits of learning Guitar


Learning to play the guitar teaches more than playing music:


  • Improved memory and attention span
  • Better mental function and health
  • Sensory development
  • Develops motor skills
  • Relieves stress
  • Improves posture and muscle function
  • Improves hand and eye coordination


We travel to students and teach them in their own homes or remotely online. We teach both adults and children in mainly 60 minute, 45 minute and 30 minute lessons. However, longer lessons can be arranged for individual circumstances.


Beginners and more advanced students welcome.

About Guitar

The guitar is a plucked string instrument that is played with the fingers or a pick. There are usually 6 strings that run down the neck of a guitar that is attached to the body. Guitars can be made of various woods and the strings are usually made of nylon or steel. Guitars come in two forms, acoustic and electric.


Acoustic guitars have hollow bodies that amplify the notes being played. Electric guitars rely on an electric amplifier that  can also alter the tone of the notes.


Blues guitar is not a type of guitar but rather a style of music. It originates from the deep south of the USA at the end of the 19th century and has had a chequered past.


At one point it was considered the Music of the Devil! Luckily for us, it has been popularised since then and is now a major influence on many other styles of music.
