Guitar lessons: (See below for piano lessons)

I teach kids aged 7+ and adults. I've developed a unique style of teaching that aids rapid learning and is equally focused on the enjoyment of learning.

The main points of lessons are recorded so that pupils have something to listen to at home.

Songs are taught from a wide range of styles, including pop, rock, blues, folk, country etc, however, I don't teach formal classical guitar or much heavy metal music.

There are numerous tips and techniques that I teach to help pupils fulfil there ambition to play and improvise with confidence.

I am a competent lead guitarist and my lessons can include scales, arpeggios, technical exercises and the basics of lead guitar.

Piano lessons:
I specialise in teaching beginners. I provide lessons for children from age 6 and for adults. Lessons include learning to read music, developing good technique, theory, scales and arpeggios and playing a variety of pieces. To provide a solid structure, I utilise the Alfred's Basic Piano Library, which I combine with other pieces from various sources. I also teach skill building exercises and learning to improvise. I don’t take pupils through formal exams.


Thank you for being such an amazing teacher. There are very few people who are truly gifted teachers and we feel very blessed to have someone like you having such a wonderful influence on Ethan's life.

I'm 44 years old and have never played guitar before. But it was on the bucket list, so I thought I better get started! Thanks to Alan, I've started to learn a variety of songs, styles and sound techniques - more than I expected to learn in my first year. Alan is a methodical, patient and positive teacher (as well as being a talented musician). I highly recommend him for both the beginner and more experienced player, young or old.

My son has been learning the guitar with Alan for 3 years. My son loves his lessons with Alan and his progress has been awesome. Alan has a great relationship with his pupils and an ability to keep them interested and keen to learn.

I'm an adult student who'd never picked up a guitar let alone played one but my New Year's Resolution was to learn to play. After only a few lessons Alan has already got me on my way to playing some songs. I've got a lot to learn but I really enjoy learning something new each lesson and Alan records the key points and demos on my iPad so I can replay during practice at home. Take up his offer of a free first lesson to see if you like it too.

We were recommended to Alan by one of his students and have not been disappointed. My son loves his guitar lessons and has learnt a great deal in a very short time. Thank you Alan!

My son enjoys the guitar lessons because Alan teaches him different techniques and introduces him to a new piece every week.

I have two children who are learning the guitar with Alan. They have only been with him for just under a year and have learnt a lot and are really enjoying playing the guitar. He is a fun and easy going teacher who communicates well with the kids. Highly recommended.

Alan is easy to learn from with a great outlook to teaching me over the years. He's given me the most valuable musical skills for the rest of my life. I highly recommend his service.
