EASY TO PLAY
Everyone can play guitar, I have never in my 30 years teaching experience come across anyone who can not play.
When someone picks up the guitar for the first time, they often doubt their ability to play. I hear phrases like “you have to be born to play” or “I haven’t got a musical ear” I can assure you that this is not true. Everyone can play, and everyone can play well it just requires time, some effort, and for most a little bit of on going support and guidance.Learning guitar is an amazing journey full off creativity, hard work, dedication that always leaves you with a massive sense of personal achivement. Learning this amazing instrument is both fun and rewarding, and once you start you’ll just want to keep getting better and better.You will want to start with a freindly and patient tutor who will guide you step by step to the next level, which is where we come in.
I tailor each lesson in a fun and easy way for you to build confidence and start playing guitar.
I can show you the easy way to play, and the easy way to approach your first chords or riffs.
