Private Tuition

EVH Wolfgang standard electric guitar

Take the opportunity to study with a qualified, experienced, conservatoire-trained, published, professional musician. I take an informal yet professional approach, with the only emphasis being on encouragement.

An Enhanced CRB Certified member of the Registry of Guitar Tutors, I offer top-class resources and a welcoming, supportive, comfortable, and relaxed atmosphere within which to learn, making this the place to turn for enjoyable music tuition.

Situated just-off a quiet street on the outskirts of Llandaff, the teaching-space is housed within my purpose-built production-studio and therefore shares the same professional acoustic-treatment, resources, and climate-control. There are numerous instruments on-hand for demonstration and explanation including a graded-hammer-action Yamaha Clavinova series piano, plus a stereo Marshall stack and Line 6 Pod HD Pro X multi-fx processing/floorboard and much more.

There’s a high quality stereo hi-fi setup for aural study and music appreciation plus a spot for those sitting-in or waiting – WIFI and a USB phone charging point are also available. Strings, books, instruments, parts, and other accessories are all held in stock for convenience or ordered whenever required.

You can take a look and even move around the studio using the 360° photo. There are no scary ‘gym style’ memberships, just a very sensible and fair written-agreement, and fees follow Musician’s Union suggested rates in order to make lessons as accessible as possible. I also offer a free ‘introductory lesson’ which is the perfect opportunity to come along and have a good natter about what we can cover.

Whatever your subject area or instrument, I cover all supporting theoretical elements, plus aural training, regardless. I cover all the latest syllabi from ABRSM/Trinity Guildhall/LCM etc. and grade examination entry is available for all disciplines.

Grade examinations offer valuable, acknowledged qualifications, not to mention experience and tangible goals, but they’re not a ‘must’ as there is much more to music and playing an instrument than just exams. All the material will be covered regardless and only where I consider it prudent, or a student themselves wishes to study and be entered for an examination, will I suggest we take that route.
