Guitar Tuition with Darryl

Look no further for top quality tuition...

Our one to one guitar lessons will be tailored towards your goals. We will focus on your musical taste as well as the technique and theory to help you understand the music you are playing. As an experienced musician, I can also help with any queries regarding anything from song writing, gear, and live performing.

GUITAR LESSONS FOR BEGINNERS

Everyone has to start somewhere and with plenty of experience teaching beginners we will sail through the basics and get you playing some of the songs that you love within just a few weeks. You will ideally need your own Guitar so that you can make the most of your lessons and put them into practice at home. However if you do not have one yet and would like some advice on what to look out for then please don’t hesitate to get hold of me!

GUITAR LESSONS FOR KIDS

I have a broad experience teaching people of all ages, even students as young as 6. For children younger than 10 I thoroughly recommend only booking a 30 minute session to ensure their concentration level stays at its peak.

MOST STYLES TAUGHT

I teach all modern and contemporary styles to an advanced level. Whether you want to simply strum along to your favourite songs, learn some finger-style, delve into the complexities of funk or jazz, groove along to some blues, or even tear up the fretboard with some of the heaviest music you can find, I’ve got you covered.

GUITAR LESSONS FOR EXPERIENCED

Sometimes people can hit a wall with their playing and end up repeating the same things over and over. Or you may be self taught musician but you really aren’t sure where to go next with your playing. In this instance we will assess your level and find any gaps in your knowledge and take it from there.

GRADED STUDY

For those who want to gain qualifications in guitar I teach the graded study using the RGT syllabi. We will work through the examination books until you are ready for the exam and then we will book you in. Grades are only taught upon request and are never forced on anyone.
