About Tom

Friendly and Enthusiastic Guitar Teacher

Hi, my name is Tom, and I conduct guitar tuition for beginner and intermediate players who want to

- De-mystify music theory and find out how it applies to the guitar
- Gain a full understanding of the beautiful simplicity of guitar chord
shapes and scale patterns
- Build techniques in a range of playing styles, from fingerstyle folk to
pop to blues and rock to jazz
- Enjoy understanding and learning to play any and all your favourite
songs

Music is my passion and in recent years I have been giving tuition to beginner and intermediate guitarists simply to enhance and share my enjoyment of guitar playing. I'm proud to have achieved some fantastic results, helping many students become increasingly competent players with a high level of understanding of the instrument and music in general.

Whether you are a complete beginner, or have been toying with the guitar for a while and are in need of some direction to further your understanding and playing ability, I can help.

I can break the illusion that music and guitar is complicated and show you how to structure your understanding and realise that it is actually very simple - and that's where the frustration ends and the enjoyment begins!

With the amount of material available online it can be confusing trying to follow a coherent path of progression with your learning, but I can help you fully organise your learning into efficient and effective steps.

So if you would like to master music theory and fully understand how to apply it to guitar, whilst putting it into context learning songs of your choice, or as recommended by me, I'll show you how!

Lessons are 45 minutes and can be conducted at your home or mine. If you need to borrow a guitar, acoustic or electric, I can help with that too.

I also share video lessons and a wide range of other tailored resources to my students covering the material we look at in lessons, and am always on hand to answer any questions you may have in-between lessons.

Please get in touch telling me a bit about yourself and what you would like to get out of guitar lessons. I look forward to hearing from you!

Thanks,
Tom

Excellent guitar tutor

Written by Daniel G
Tom taught me guitar from more or less beginner level. I have been having regular lessons with him for almost a year now and have progressed my playing and understanding of music beyond a level that I ever even imagined. His way of explaining ideas and breaking things down made things that I thought were so complicated seem simple. His style of teaching is very relaxed and enjoyable so most of all the lessons are fun!
Subject:
Guitar
Outcome:
I have already become a far better guitar player than I ever thought was possible in such a short amount of time, and I have a new life passion for guitar!

Great help improving on guitar

Written by Laurie H
Guitar lessons with Tom were really helpful for me to better understand guitar music theory, to practice playing with Tom, as well as being a 'surgery' to make sure I was getting into good playing habits. I'd certainly recommend Tom for beginners on guitar.
Subject:
Guitar
Outcome:
Improvement in playing techniques as well as comprehension of music theory applied to guitar.

Great guitar teacher

Written by Daniel G
I was a beginner to intermediate level guitarist when I started having lessons with Tom. His teaching style makes lessons really laid back and fun. It was his way of explaining and applying music theory that really helped my playing. I could never really be bothered to figure out music theory before, but Tom made it all make sense within a couple of lessons and everything just clicked!
Subject:
Guitar
Outcome:
I am a much better guitarist with a good understanding of music theory, and still enjoying weekly lessons with Tom

Informative and Rewarding Guitar Lessons

Written by Tim D
Tom is a very patient and responsive guitar teacher. I had been attempting guitar on and off for years but I had several major stumbling blocks which he helped me overcome quickly. He is very adaptable in his willingness to teach different styles, and has gone to great efforts to send me resources such as videos to help me practice between lessons.
Subject:
Guitar
Outcome:
I now enjoy playing guitar far more than I used to! Can't recommend Tom highly enough.
