Guitar Lessons

John is available for lessons. Schools and Colleges in Hampshire already use John as their Guitar tutor, however these lessons are restricted. Private lessons are available on request.

Private lessons are normally every other week to allow more people to have lessons. Hourly and half hourly slots can be arranged.

For all lessons your success is dependent on your input - practise! Please note that if you are unable to make the slot that you have made please give 24 hours notice or a cancellation fee will be due. Your cooperation is appreciated.

Other Services:

The Grind

If a student wishes then he or she may join the student band "THE GRIND"

This band is created to give the students experience in learning repertoire and improving the stamina needed to play towards the 2 hours need to perform in a band.

The band will also be available to charitable events where students will be asked to play between 1 and 30 songs.

I will encourage students to play accurate versions of the songs and not dumbed down jack black versions. The songs are specifically chosen so they will be playable and confidence building.

There is no point learning songs if you take short cuts. Improvisation is encouraged to extend songs after the student has accurately played the original. Many of my students have joined the lucrative world of tribute bands which is not only demanding but requires much stamina to learn faithful versions that the fans demand. Students quickly learn its not just about learning the guitar , it's about knowing the music otherwise you're not gig ready!

Please contact me if you wish my student band to play your event.
