Electric Guitar

Quite possibly the most popular instrument on the planet at this time. If someone has an estimate of how many people in the world play Electric Guitar please Email me.

Electric Guitar is a specialism for me as I am an Examiner in this subject and support and promote the Registry of Guitar Tutors excellent Electric Guitar Playing Syllabus which is validated by the London College of Music and has Ofqual accreditation. That said, most students are content to play the music that they like best and I am happy to help them do so. However the exams are useful when you need a target or a qualification.


Classical Guitar

A lovely instrument, very cheap to purchase, easy on the ear (no amplifiers needed) and relatively easy to get a pleasant sound from. With all the guitar family I would always encourage the student to play at least some pieces in a Classical style even if not actual Classical Music. There are many famous examples of Rock Classics that are played using Classical Fingering.


Bass Guitar

A great instrument in its own right but often viewed as having a supporting role rather than a life of its own. However you view it, the Bass is an essential part of any ensemble and if you are planning to use your Guitar playing examinations to help get you into university, the Bass will count as a second instrument.



I favour the 5 string Banjo for its versatility and range. If you play Guitar and use Tablature you can probably play the Banjo without even knowing it. Come along and try!
