Guitar Lessons

Penwortham, Preston & via Skype


Covid-19 update.

Due to the virus all in person lessons have been moved to Skype to help social distancing. I want to thank all my students from the bottom of my heart for all the support you’ve given me during this time. I have been overwhelmed at the support and I am very lucky to teach you all.

For all potential students I’d love you to try out a free Skype lesson, they’re great as an alternative to school music lessons if you’ve got a guitar at home and self isolation could be a great time to dust off the cobwebs and brush up your skills!

Thank you all for supporting a local, self employed, member of your community, stay safe, look after each other and if you have any questions let me know.

Guitar Tuition

Whether you’ve never picked up a guitar or just don’t know where to go next with your playing my guitar lessons are one to one and personalised to what you want to learn, whatever age, whatever ability, just dedicated tuition!

My main guitar studio is located in Penwortham right on the edge of Preston and Lostock Hall as well as via Skype so you can learn from the comfort of your own home. If you’re looking to treat someone special I also do guitar lesson gift vouchers for both Skype and Penwortham lessons.

Have a look around my site for information on lessons, testimonials and a bit more about me and if you’re interested you can book a free 30 minute trial lesson so you can get a taste of what your lessons will be like without any cost or commitment. You can also ask me anything on my contact page or fire me some questions on Facebook or Twitter.

  • try before you buy

    My free trial lesson means you can get a taste of what’s involved and see if guitar is for you with no obligation. A guitar can even be provided.

    Live further afield? You can still have your guitar lessons over Skype including all related lesson material in the form of PDFs and backing tracks.

  • studios

    My professional studio is set up in Penwortham near Preston and I also do Skype lessons for people who cannot get here. I have created a dream studio with great views and comfortable seating for students and parents.

  • acoustic

    Acoustic guitar lessons are great fun. We can enhance your picking and strumming techniques whilst learning your favourite tracks.

  • electric

    High end amplification and effects are provided for any and all electric guitar orientated music. Having a great tone always helps!

  • graded study

    Track your progress and gain qualifications with graded study. The higher grades are also worth UCAS points if you are a student.

  • take aways

    No pizza’s here! I will provide you with notation, tabs, videos and tracks to help you with your own practice so you can make the most of your lessons.

  • support

    Get in touch on Facebook, Twitter, email or text for advice and support out of lessons. I’m here whenever and I will try to get back to you as soon as I can.

Whether they’re an aspiring guitarist or they’re already a student give the gift of guitar lessons.

One of the best things to happen to my profession in recent times is acquiring the ability to extend my reach from my local geographical area to basically anywhere in the world. Teaching via platforms like Skype and google hangouts has become a large part of my week and has allowed me not only to… Read more »

I’m not talking about volume here, and I’m actually not talking about guitar lessons either although that can obviously help. I’m talking about just ‘turning up’ and getting the work done. There’s no big secret and you don’t need to be a natural. I recently took up Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and despite basically a lifetime… Read more »
