My music education
Over the years I’ve been fortunate to have had some truly wonderful music mentors and guitar teachers. They’ve all taught me a great deal (and kicked my ass in their own unique ways!), for which I will always be very grateful.
As a guitarist I’ve now performed many hundreds of gigs around the UK; in a wide range of sometimes bizarre settings.
Two memorable ones were: a 7am gig on a Harrods open top bus in central London; and another where I was balanced precariously on the roof of Basildon House in a DayGlo pink safety harness, playing the national anthem!
My guitar teaching
Teaching guitar is a large part of my life. It’s not something I do grudgingly to get by. Guitar teaching is a great career and a fulfilling part of my life. It’s also an ongoing opportunity for me to put my own techniques and knowledge under the microscope.
I’ve taught a very wide range of guitar skills to many hundreds guitarists of all levels, and I also taught courses for The Academy of Music and Sound.
Since I began teaching guitar professionally I’ve written several thousand pages of material covering many different aspects of guitar playing and performing. If you’re interested in taking lessons from me, just drop me a quick email.
If you’re interested in making a living as a guitar teacher, or just earning a bit extra on the side, then try my video course over at beaguitarteacher.com. In it you’ll learn everything that I’ve learned about how to make a good living teaching guitar.
I’ve written many articles about learning, performing and teaching the guitar, which you can read on my articles page.
