Hi, I’m Chris.
I’ve been teaching Guitar Lessons in Leeds professionally since 2014.
Whether you’re a complete beginner, self-taught, or you’ve been playing for years, I’d love to help.
My guitar lessons in Leeds cover 3 main styles:
Learn from my extensive library of classics, including: Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones, The Who and The Beatles.
Develop your fingerstyle technique with pieces by Nick Drake, Bert Jansch, Bob Dylan, and Joan Baez.
Alternative / Indie
Whether it’s New Wave, Psych-Rock, Dream Pop, or Post-Punk you’re into, I’ve got you covered.
“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.”
– Daniel Teasdale, Leeds
“I’ve only been having lessons with Chris for a few weeks but I’ve already seen lots of improvement with my playing. His approach to teaching is very tailored and helps you get what you want from his lessons and get you closer to your long term goals each session.
“He takes the time to listen to the music you’re into and construct lessons around music you like. Would highly recommend!”
– Jamie Moore, Leeds

About Chris Morton
I teach adult beginners & intermediates how to play Rock, Folk, and Alternative styes.
My beginner students learn how to master the fundamentals, through a step-by-step course I’ve created and tweaked over the past 5 years. My Intermediate students learn more about how music works, and how to use ear training to learn & create music with ease.
Teaching guitar is my full-time job, but when I’m not teaching, I play guitar for Team Picture (a Leeds based alternative/post-punk group).
