Guitar lessons with professional musician
Date Listed 30/05/2018
Are you stuck in a rut with your guitar playing? I’ve travelled across the world and back to try and uncover the mysteries of music, and I can share that with you.
I love teaching and I’ve studied how to teach under professional pedagogic instructors - alongside of 15 years experience. Last year one of my old students wrote the winning Eurovision song contest song contest and I have other success stories from old students.
I specialise in learning by ear, funk, pop, jazz, improvisation, world music, songwriting and I also play bass, piano & sing.
Learn in a relaxed one-to-one environment, I’m flexible with times and will travel (within reason) for lessons in your own home. All ages welcome.
1 hour €30-40 depending on location.
Introductory offers: 10 lessons for the price of 8 or 5 lessons for the price of 4 if you book and pay upfront. Vouchers available. Get in touch!
