Absolutely! Believe it not, beginners make up the bulk of most guitars teachers students. To really help beginners on the road to mastery, I have developed a course aimed specifically at cutting down the time it takes a beginner to learn the basics of guitar.
What experience do you have?
16 years playing experience. 4 years teaching experience and 10 years performing experience. I have taught a huge variety of students from senior citizens looking to fulfil one of their life’s ambitions to youngsters picking up an instrument for the first time.
Will I get better?
Of course! Everybody is more than capable of improving their guitar playing skills. All it takes is a small commitment, a willingness to have fun and try new ideas. As long as you keep an open mind, practice well, and get the right teaching (this can mean being self-taught as well), you can achieve all your guitar playing ambitions.

Unless you are a left-handed guitarist, you don`t need to bring anything. That`s right, I have a huge array of equipment including 4 electric guitars, an acoustic, multiple amps and a huge range of effects pedals. All leads, picks, tuners, capos, etc are provided.
Can you visit my home?

Do I need to read music?
No, not at all. If you are following a certain career or course, then you will need to read music, but just to play the instrument and have fun, not at all. Some of the greatest guitarists of all time can`t actually read music. If you do want to learn to read music, I will happily teach you.
