guitar lessons in leedsHi, I’m Chris Morton, and welcome to my Leeds Guitar Lessons website.

I teach one-to-one guitar lessons in Leeds, guitar groups, guitar lessons online via Skype, and guitar & ukulele in schools. Whether you’re a complete beginner, or you’ve been playing guitar for years, I’ll design a course of study that’s just right for you or your child.

Maybe you’d like to learn…

…how to play your favourite songs, develop your technique, and become a more expressive player. I have beginner students from age 7, right up to retirement.

Maybe you’ve got the basics down, and you want to explore the fretboard, learn to play by ear, or unravel the mysteries of music theory. You might want to perform or write & record your own songs.

I can help you with all of these things and more. I have a bachelor’s degree in Music, a full-time teaching schedule, and extensive performance experience in a range of styles.

I’ve been playing guitar for over 15 years, but more importantly I’ve helped a lot of frustrated players past that beginner stage, intermediate players out of ruts, and guitarists who have been playing for years. Read the testimonials.


I have students learning Rock, Acoustic, Pop, Fingerstyle, Blues, Funk, Folk, Jazz, and many more styles. By taking a song-based approach, learners get more enjoyment out of lessons, while still exploring the ingredients of music.

If you’re looking to learn a specific style, I’m happy to help. Those looking for a more general approach can expect to be introduced to a whole world of guitar playing.

Are you a parent looking for guitar lessons for your child?

My teaching methods make learning guitar easy and fun.

With students aged 7 and up, regular teaching experience in schools, and a repertoire that’s designed for young learners, I am well equipped to teach children.

Lessons are also available on Ukulele, which might suit those with smaller hands.


I started lessons as a complete beginner and have found Chris to be really friendly and patient. I started learning to play the songs I like from the off, and the lesson materials are clear and easy to practice from at home. If you’re looking for relaxed lessons and a knowledgeable teacher, Chris is your guy!” – Naomi King, Leeds
