Frequently Asked Questions

I'm a beginner. Do you take on beginners?

Of course! In fact, if you're a beginner, that's even better because you won't run the risk of learning bad habits that many self taught guitarists have. 

What sort of guitar should I buy? Do I have to start off with an acoustic first?

If you do not currently own a guitar, then download my helpful guide on how to buy a guitar

What ages do you teach?

I teach all adults, teenagers and children who are at least 8 years old.

I'm left-handed. Will you be able to teach me?

Yes! Being left-handed will not set you back in anyway at all!

I want to play [insert style here]. Can you help me with that?

I specialise in rock, pop, blues and metal music. I do teach some basic jazz and classical, but only to a beginner level. If the style you are wanting to learn is not mentioned here, then you should seek out a specialist in that area. 

How long until I can play the guitar?

There isn't a real solid answer to this question, but I will show you how to play something in your first lesson. It can take a while to get used to playing guitar, so you need to be prepared to stick with it for at least 6 months.
