  • I am a member of "First Tutors: Music",

I believe it is important to achieve playing success as soon as possible and this can be achieved by teaching songs and styles of music that the student likes and, in most cases, chooses. 

  • Learn to strum and fingerpick. 
  • Learn to accompany yourself and others. 
  • Learn to improvise and "jam". 
  • Cultivate your confidence and hone your skills. 
  • Learn to perform, impress and create! 
  • Nurture a hobby.... and, have fun!!

Players of all abilities are welcome (including complete beginners).

Players of all ages are welcome. 

Tuition for electric guitar, acoustic guitar, bass guitar, mandolin and ukulele.

Tuition for all styles of music. 

If you would prefer to work through grades, this is available using the ™ROCKSCHOOL syllabus. This can be discussed during the introductory session, but bear in mind that there will be an additional charge for the syllabus workbooks. 

Advice can be given on the purchase of a suitable instrument, including recommended retailers and instrument sources. 

Alternatively, an instrument can be purchased for you, or your son or daughter, to fit in with any budget. 

I can also loan suitable instruments for the lessons, although an instrument will eventually need to be obtained for practice purposes.

I am based in Shrewsbury, Shropshire and I can offer tuition at your own home, if it is within three miles of the SY1 postcode. 

If you live beyond this, there will be a charge for travel. 

Alternatively, you can have your lessons at my own home, if it's not too far for you to travel.

Tuition slots are available day times or early evenings.

Tuition Rates:
£10.00 for half hour session
