Hi, I’m Chris. I help children & adults break through the beginner stage, so they can have fun 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.

Getting started is easy, and I offer a free introductory lesson.

Happy Students

“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

“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

“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!”

About Chris

I specialise in teaching beginner & intermediate players 1-to-1, and beginner guitar groups. I primarily teach Rock, Pop, Alternative & Folk styles, but my students are free to learn music in their chosen styles.

My beginner students learn how to master the fundamentals, through step-by-step courses. My intermediate students learn useful applications for music theory, 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.

Teaching guitar is my full-time profession. When I’m not teaching, I play guitar for Team Picture (a Leeds based alternative rock group).
