Step into my, guitar shaped, office!
No matter whether it’s for fun (fun should always play a part) or if you’re looking to play guitar professionally, I can help you to achieve your goals with my guitar tuition in Warrington.
I cover a variety of styles and genres including [but not limited to] Rock, Blues, Indie, Soul, Motown, via both Acoustic or Electric Guitar.
Lesson Style / Atmosphere
Lessons are fun, informative and practical, bringing out the creative side and fun of playing guitar. Lessons are broken down into separate modules covering topics, techniques and essential knowledge, or maybe you’d just like to learn your new favourite song!
What I won’t do is teach you a scale then spend the next hour watching you struggle to try and play it (as many guitar tutors are guilty of) before collecting my money.
Instead, I work with students to help them develop and nurture their own particular style of playing, which can cover anything from learning the theory of guitar, to the art of song-writing, expression, or helping a student to feel confident enough to perform live – I’m adaptable to all different learning styles and provide regular documentation and audio examples for my students to assist them in their musical journey.
Lessons are fun, interesting and informative! Many of my younger students see increased grades in Music.
Whether you’re 5 or 95 years old, the guitar is accessible to all!
I teach privately and within Primary Schools so have experience in teaching all different age-ranges. Some of my best students are adults who have recently taken up the guitar! I would recommend 30 / 45 minute lessons for younger students, however I can will work with you to deliver what you would like. This can include group lessons or longer sessions to suit.
My youngest student is 6 years old, is that to young to learn guitar? I’ve found it largely depends on the student!
Are you suitable?
It truly never is to late to learn, as long as YOU also put the work in as well! This might just be a minimum of 10 minutes practice every 2 days (it all adds up)
One thing I can’t do is programme a student like a computer without any effort on their side, it takes some practice and dedication. Many of my students have real natural talent, but my best students are the one’s that put the work in and love to play!
I don’t have a guitar!
You may need one! But I understand. If you’re intending to book lessons for your child or a relative, the thought of shelling out money on a guitar they may grow tired off can be off-putting. I offer guitar rental at just £10 a week, it’s important to have one around throughout the week for the student to practice on. You can consider this a prolonged test drive to see how they take to the instrument. If you decide to buy a guitar afterwards and continue lessons, great! If not, at least you know 🙂
Lessons at your Home
Most of my [physical] students live within the Warrington area and prefer the convenience of home visits. This means I’m the one stuck in rush hour traffic, not yourself! However, if your home isn’t convenient lessons can be held at my Studio in Central Warrington.
More and more students around the world are taking to the web for their guitar lessons. Modern world technology means I can teach a student in China from the comfort of my own home in Warrington! incredible really. I’m currently part of a great teaching platform called Classdo which features a virtual classroom where we can conduct the lesson via webcam, exchange documents, music files. It’s free to join so check out my profile and let’s get cyber-connected! CLICK HERE> Mike’s Virtual Classdo Guitar Studio
