Kids and Teenagers

Lessons for kids and teenagers

When a child takes their first steps with the guitar, it is of the utmost importance that they are inspired to keep playing, and not just chuck in the towel at the first hurdle. I have created a programme of lessons for children that I have tried and tested with many of my young students and find it to be very successful in inspiring the youngsters to keep playing. Mainly my programme is centred around playing exciting music and not just doing boring exercises. From day one, a child will learn all the essential things they need to know on the guitar, like how to sit correctly, the parts of the instrument, where the notes live on the neck, proper technique and much, much more.

My kid's beginner programme aligns with the RGT, Rockschool and Trinity Guildhall grade syllabuses, so if it is the parents wish, my students can take any of the exams, or if they just want to play for fun, that is also an option. My children's beginner program is aimed at giving youngsters the most fun and exciting experience they can with this excellent instrument, while at the same time learning the maximum amount of essential skills to allow them to become successful Guitarists.

At the teenage level, there are a couple of categories of students. At this age group, you may be a complete beginner, or you may have had lessons elsewhere and decided you want a different teacher. You may also have been teaching yourself for a few years and have decided that you want to take the guitar a little more seriously and that now is the time for you to have lessons.

I am well versed in dealing with these situations and will tailor lessons to the individual. Usually, teenagers will want to be playing their favourite music styles on the guitar, whether it's just for fun, for a band they are in or because they are doing GCSE or A-Level music. Students like this may wish to go to university and one day make it as a professional musician. I will be able to prepare them for their auditions for their higher education institution of choice. 

I have extensive experience in teaching students from acoustic and electric backgrounds and have helped many teenagers achieve their musical goals. Every student is different, and I am more than capable of dealing with all possible situations. Whether that is preparing you for graded exams, sorting out your guitar solo for your band's next gig, or helping you audition for that place on that fantastic course, I can help you achieve your musical ambitions.

I offer tuition both in person, at my studio, and by remote study, which will work well for parents who will find it hard to get their children to me, and for students further afield that think they will benefit from my unique and specialised tuition. The personal touch will always work for some people, so if you are in the local area and you want your son or daughter to study in my excellent studio environment, then this option is available.
