My approach to learning



Cutting Edge Guitar is my full time professional guitar and contemporary music tuition company. I created Cutting Edge Guitar in order to give people the opportunity to benefit from my unique approach to learning to play the guitar.

My approach to learning the guitar, is mainly that it should always 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 that dream guitar you've always wanted or you are seven years old and have your first little acoustic, it is my firm belief that you should be getting the maximum amount of pleasure from your chosen instrument. Whilst at the same time getting exactly what it is that you, as an individual, require.

Whether that is the tools to be able to play the latest sweep picking lick that everyone wants to know, or you just want to strum the chords to Sweet Home Alabama, whatever you want, you should have it.

With me, all lesson types are catered for. From complete beginners at the earliest age, to GCSE and A Level Music, to professional standard players looking to hone a particular technique or if you are just a humble bedroom guitarist, looking for pleasure from an amazing hobby, I can deliver any type of lesson you may require.
