My name is James, welcome to my Junior Guitar Workshop!
I teach guitar at home and in schools and I specialize in beginners - young children or any people that lack confidence and need a lot of support and encouragement. My passion is helping kids and adults playing the songs they love with minimal practice. I can usually get children as young as 7 playing their first song in about four thirty minute lessons!
As they progress, there is the option to learn to sight read music as they play using a series of books that I recommend. All lessons are geared to their taste and goals and the emphasis is on having fun while you learn. A simple practice sheet is given out - practice can be as short as 5 minutes a day! Slowed down song mp3's are sent to the parents' email address for practice at home (sing along!). Pupils can learn in pairs if they want to bring a friend.
Electric or acoustic guitars of all sizes can be provided, also advice on what to buy. The studio in Hove has a private entrance. I am a trained, experienced teacher of 12 years teaching guitar (with DBS certificate), I write music and perform in bands. I am a father of two kids, patient, friendly with a good sense of humour, I have had lots of great feedback from parents and learners alike. Give it a go!
Taster lesson: FREE 30 mins with no obligation to continue if you are unsure.
