My approach to learning




Cutting Edge Guitar is my full-time professional guitar and contemporary music tuition company. I created Cutting Edge Guitar to allow people to benefit from my unique approach to learning to play this fantastic instrument. My approach to learning the guitar, is mainly that it should be fun and rewarding, and that the student should always get what they want and require.

Whether you are 50 years old and have just spent £4,000 on your dream guitar, or you are seven years old and have your first acoustic, I believe that you should be getting the maximum amount of pleasure from your instrument. Learning essential technical and theoretical aspects can also be fun and musically liberating when taught correctly.  Whether that is the tools to be able to play the latest sweep picking lick, or you want to strum the chords to Sweet Home Alabama, whatever you want, you should and can have it.

With me, I include all lesson types into my syllabus. I teach all kinds of students, from complete beginners at the earliest age, to GCSE and A-Level music pupils, to professional standard players looking to hone a particular technique. Even if you are just a humble bedroom guitarist, looking for pleasure from a fantastic hobby, I can deliver any lesson you may require.
