Hi there aspiring Guitarists!
My name is Nick and am here to help you move forward on your guitar playing journey… whether you are complete beginner and have never touched a guitar before, have played in the past and want to get back to playing or are a seasoned guitar player looking for a re boot, I am here to help.
I am a graduate of the London College of Music and hold a master’s degree in Music from the University of Auckland, I’m originally from the UK. I have extensive teaching experience from beginners to Degree level as well as extensive performance experience.
Whether it’s technique, musicianship, theory, ear training or improvisation, my proven method will guarantee you results… all you need is a guitar and the motivation to practice and I will help you every step of the way.
Complete beginners of all ages are, of course very welcome!
Every guitar player is an individual and everybody is at a different stage of their musical journey.
However there are fundamentals that every musician should have:
a solid techinque
a solid understanding of musical theory….. dont worry- the whole point of theory is to enable students to express themselves… music is a language after all!
Musicianship:- this is a good understanding of rhythm / harmony and ear training.. ( spoiler alert:- if you think you are ‘tone deaf’ you are very probably mistaken as actual tone deafness is incredibly rare)
all of these things add up to giving you the best shot at being the best guitar player you can be!
So let’s get started… we’ve got work to do!!
