A passionate, friendly and experienced Guitar Tutor

I am a Guitarist and Commercial Music BA graduate with an unrelenting passion for Music and teaching with the aim to guide others to realise and fulfil their potential.

I have a vast amount of teaching experience in countless tutoring environments with the award winning 'Strings Club' music camps where I teach complete beginners to read music on the guitar in less than a week! I also have much experience with my own students where I teach a broad spectrum of styles always depending on the needs of my pupils.

I teach all age groups from beginner to advanced. I taylor my lessons to the needs and goals of each individual student, weather it be for academic preparation (incl. theory/ notation) or just for fun! I use practical approaches to equip my students with the tools necessary for the real life music scenarios!

I am an experienced performer of all popular music styles with both electric and acoustic guitar. I have extensive knowledge of improvised music styles such as; Jazz, Blues, Funk, and other 'smooth' styles.

Currently I am employed as a booking agent for Trumpeter Daniel Cano and Saxophonist Paul Booth and I am the Social Media Content Coordinator for Pathway Records. I draw upon my industry expertise to advise and prepare my students of what to expect from the industry, musically and socially.

If you have any quires please do not hesitate to contact me!

Warm regards,

Excellent tutor, learnt a lot and was great fun!

As a total beginner on the guitar, elias helped me learn how to read and play music. With his help I found it very quick and easy to pick up. He provided me with music sheets to learn from, and in my spare time. He is obviously very passionate about guitar and teaching and this comes across in his lessons. I would highly recommend elias to all of my friends and family, he is a fun and friendly person, who makes learning fun.

A tutor who is on tune

Elias provides an excellent learning experience for a beginer whilst installing confidence in his pupil. He demonstrates patience and communicates in a friendly manner to make the lesson enjoyable. He has a very good understanding of music theory aswell as music history. With a broad knowledge of music genres there is something for all to learn.

Passionate, Friendly, Professional

Elias' excellent guitar lessons helped me develop my confidence in my ability and to broaden my knowledge. I started learning from him as a beginner, but now I feel like an intermediate. Elias is very passionate about music and this always shines through the lessons. I always looked forward to my guitar lessons, and this is an immense credit to Elias and his ability to teach. I always felt comfortable with him and enjoyed the challenge of learning new techniques. I cannot recommend Elias highly enough!
I am now a confident guitarist and the lessons I had with Elias have improved my playing vastly.

Eli's guitar lessons are a joyous experience :)

I wanted to learn how to play the guitar for years before I came across Elias. Even had some lessons in the past with a different teacher but it didn't work out. With Elias it just clicked. He always had the right material with him, and his friendly, calm nature helped with my anxiety. He taught me different techniques that would help learn how to play anything I wanted after mastering them, and made the hard ones look easy. Patience is his second nature, and he was very supportive when I was being too hard on myself. His love for music makes it all even better, I know after hearing him play I imediately thought this was the best choice. Someone that knows what he's doing, loves it, wants to share it with the world, and bring joy in other people's lives. I think that's very important nowadays.
Would finish a lesson with a boost of confidence, and crazy desire to start practicing again as soon as I get home. Made a lot of progress and was able to start practicing songs by myself.

It had always been one of my life goals to learn Guitar but had always put it off. Having been recommended Elias by a friend i thought to give it a go. I never looked back!

Elias has a calm and understanding approach and really makes you feel comfortable as a beginner. The lessons are well planned and at a good pace and i really felt like i was making progress without feeling overwhelmed. The lessons are fun and personalised and he enjoys teaching you what you are interested in/want to learn.

His knowledge is fantastic and better yet is always learning more and making sure he is up to date and relevant.

I would highly recommend Elias to anybody of all abilities.

Oh, He's Versatile!

Elias is a qualified and well educated music tutor. Not only does he have plenty of experience teaching guitar to those of all ages, he also has a lot of patience and cares about the progress of his students. These qualities are what truly shapes a tutor, which ultimately brings out the best in the students. I have had music tutors in the past who whizz through the content and I struggled to keep up, but I have learnt more with Elias as he has a much more patience and thorough approach. Anybody looking for a music teacher that has a great understanding of theory, experience in teaching and the qualifications to truly highlight his passion for music, I really do recommend Elias.
I can now play guitar very well!
