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 with dual Crate power amps and Line 6 Pod Pro multi-fx processing/floorboard.
There’s a high quality stereo hi-fi setup for aural study and music appreciation plus a small seating area for those sitting-in or waiting for whom WIFI and a phone charging point are made available. Strings, books, instruments, parts, and other accessories are all held in stock for convenience or ordered whenever required.
There are no scary ‘gym style’ memberships, just a very sensible and fair written-agreement. 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.
• Guitar (classical, electric, acoustic, and bass)
• Mandolin (beginner)
• Theory & general musicianship
• Music production and music-technology/pro-audio
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.
