Learn to play your favourite songs

guitar lessons leeds

Hi, I’m Chris. I help children & adults break through the beginner stage, while playing their favourite music.

With a song-based approach and a step-by-step programme, my guitar lessons in Leeds have been described as “very tailored”, “fun and very practical”, and “clear and easy to practise from”.

Whether you’re a complete beginner, or you’ve been playing for years, I’d love to help.

"Chris has all the aspects of a great tutor. In a matter of weeks, I'm playing some of my favourite music and moving on to more advanced techniques."
"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!"
"Chris has been an excellent tutor, a really good fit for me. The most important thing is that he’s teaching me songs that I love. He goes to the effort of breaking them down to match my skill level but also pushes me to try harder tabs. He’s really motivating, very skilled and clearly loves his job. I couldn’t recommend him more."

About Chris

Leeds Guitar Lessons

I specialise in teaching beginner & intermediate guitar, in Rock & Indie styles.

My beginner students learn how to master the fundamentals, through step-by-step courses. My intermediate students learn practical applications for music theory and ear training, whether it’s through songwriting or improvising.

Many of my students have gone on to perform on stage, record their own songs, or pass grades with flying colours.

As a guitarist, my playing has been heard on BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 6 music, Radio X, BT Sport, a Netflix series and an ITV series.

What makes my tuition different?

Structured learning

My curriculum has been designed & refined over 8 years of teaching. I'm always improving it, and I'm not making this up as I go along. Each lesson will follow along from the last, checking on what we covered in the previous lesson. Songs are organised into levels, to shorten the learning curve.

Clear practice goals

I give you a custom practice plan, based on your goals and personal struggles. Interactive TABs, audio, diagrams, and tasks all get added to a digital notebook. All your lesson notes are in one place, and everything is easy to find. No more searching through emails or papers to find last week's lesson notes.

Specialism in Rock & Alternative styles.

It's important to have a teacher who shares the same musical interests as you. I don't claim to be an expert in Blues, Classical, Jazz, Country, or Metal. Teachers who put long lists of genres on their bio are probably new to teaching, and are trying to fill lots of empty slots.
