Do you teach complete beginners?

Do you teach children?

Absolutely, children of all ages are more than welcome! Half hour lessons each week tend to work best with young people under 11. You are more than welcome to sit in during your child's guitar lessons.

Can I learn Electric AND Acoustic guitar?

Of course, the choice is completely yours! I teach both electric guitar and acoustic guitar, in all styles and genres.

Do I need to own a guitar before I start my first lesson?

Not at all, I have guitars here that you are more than welcome to use.

I’m tone deaf and have never even touched an instrument in my entire life, do you think I can learn guitar?

Absolutely, anyone can learn guitar - I have taught children guitar aged as young as five to adults in their late 70s. Seriously, if you have the passion for guitar you will certainly be able to play in it no time at all!

Can I take grades?

Absolutely, I can provide Rockschool graded tuition to help you undertake grades on electric and acoustic guitar. The higher grades can help younger students gain UCAS points for their applications to UK universities. However, grades are completely optional as many of my students simply learn for their own enjoyment. For more information about grades simply get in touch.

I have made tons of progress with my guitar playing after only a few sessions with Matt. He really knows his stuff and makes sure you understand the fundamentals such as rhythm and strumming patterns. I would highly recommend him. - Noel Clerkin
