Do you teach children?

Yes, I teach children of all ages. For your peace of mind I am fully CRB checked - please ask if you would like to view the certificate.

What songs will we play?

To begin with, we'll be working through study pieces & exercises tailored to your needs. It's essential that you have the basic core skills in place before we move on. After that, its up to you! I can teach you to play your favourite music whatever your style!

Do I need anything before I start my first lesson?

All you need is a guitar at home to practice on.

Do you offer gift vouchers? 

Yes, call me for more information!

Cancellation Policy:

Cancellations can occur for many reasons, I try to be as flexible as possible when students need to cancel or move their lesson. Please remember if your lesson can be rearranged to a different time in the same week, no cancellation fees are charged. I do this as I would rather students get their lesson than not. Below is my cancellation policy:

  • Less than 72 hours notice – Full lesson fee charged
  • More than 72 hours notice – No lesson fee charged
  • If I/tutor cancel or move your lesson time and you subsequently cannot make it – no lesson fee charged
