About Bruce

Professional Guitar/Vocal Teacher in Chester

I am a professional guitar and vocal teacher with over 25 years experience at every level of education, from primary to HE. I am the most senior examiner for RSLAwards (RSLAwards.com) the largest Popular Music exam board in the world. I have extensive live and academic experience nationally and internationally and some of my previous students have gone on to work at a very high level (with Nigel Kennedy, Gary Barlow, The Shires, Andrew Lloyd Webber) and attend prestigious institutions such as the Royal Northern and Salford University. I believe in tailoring lessons to individual students (often with unique scores and some video material created for the lesson) and incorporate the required level of technical/theoretic knowledge wanted into the music we are learning. This makes learning fun and music focussed, and helps the brain retain knowledge much more effectively than repetitive technical exercises. I am very reliable as a teacher, and have a friendly approach which encourages students to go at their own pace and feel good about their accomplishments. I am happy to teach towards graded exams and have a 100% pass rate, or to teach with a more 'personal goal' oriented approach.

Dr Bruce Darlington - Music Tutor (Guitar)

Written by Donna H
Dr Darlington has been a guitar tutor at Helsby High School for the past five years. He teaches electric and acoustic guitar to all levels up to Diploma. Several of his students have gone on to study Music at university and play professionally.He is equally comfortable with beginners and advanced students and form excellent relationships with both students and colleagues at the school. Bruce is always professional and well organised, he goes above and beyond with his students - sending out sheet music and emailing tracks to them in order to support pupil progress. He is also a well respected examiner and a professional musician. I would highly recommend him as a tutor with your company.
Subject:
Guitar
Outcome:
An outstanding teacher - I would highly recommend.

Bruce is an exceptionally talented musician who has the ability to tailor his lessons so that they work for every level of pupil. As a non-musical beginner I really appreciated his incredible patience. His lessons were meticulously prepared and well-structured and he was full of encouragement.

I have also heard some of Bruce's advanced pupils playing and his tuition takes them to a whole new level.
His knowledge of the Rock School examination syllabus is, I believe, unsurpassed.
I would recommend him unreservedly.

I achieved my objectives!
