A full-time pro guitar tutor providing acoustic and electric guitar tuition to beginners, intermediates & advanced levels at your home or at my home studio in Ewell. I started playing guitar at the age of 14 and what started out as a self-taught hobby soon became the focus of my education through school and to degree level at the Academy Of Contemporary Music. I have always set myself the highest standards and work hard to be the best at whatever I do. No better example of this was my pursuit of martial arts in which I progressed from novice to 2nd Dan Black Belt in Karate in seven years. I then became a Karate instructor at the age of 14 years. My love of teaching started there. Tutoring Experience: I joined the Registry Of Guitar Tutors (RGT) in September 2011. I was employed at Ripley Guitars and two pro recording studios - Chicken Shack and Powerhouse, all as their in-house guitar tutor. My focus is now on my own private tutor business and the provision of tuition at my former high school, Richard Challoner in New Malden. After achieving the required credentials, I started my business as a professional guitar tutor in 2012. Now with over 6 years of full time teaching experience, I remain relentless in my quest to be the best guitar player and teacher and to get the very best results for my students. Tutoring Approach: For me, the most important principal of tuition is to help students become the player they want to be, not what I or anyone else thinks they should be. My goal is to provide the skills and knowledge they need in whatever style and context they aspire to. My teaching style is about making the student comfortable and to enjoy the session. Learning guitar needs hard work and practice, but it should still be fun. I can teach you to play, without or without the theory which can switch students off if tackled to early. I can also guide you in writing, performing and stagecraft. As a Registry of Guitar Tutors (RGT) member, I can prepare you for, and arrange formal RGT examinations if you wish to follow that route. Ultimately, I can tailor your tuition to be whatever you want or need it to be, whether that is largely practical, a mix of practical and theory or largely theoretical. I provide tuition at student's homes in Epsom, Ewell, Worcester Park, Stoneleigh and Cheam areas, or at my home studio in Ewell. Visit
