Hi, I’m Chris. I help kids, teenagers & adults reach a higher level on guitar, 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.

Getting started is easy, and I offer a Free Trial Lesson. Click below to get in touch.

What makes my tuition different?

A new approach to learning

I believe guitar lessons have been taught backwards for decades.

In a traditional method, lesson time is spent fixing mistakes, or correcting bad habits that have been picked up at home. Students are sent home to "get it right". I've found a better way to teach.

When students can finish learning their music in their lesson, practice no longer feels like homework, and lessons are more productive!

Real songs, at your level

Using a grade syllabus can feel restrictive, with students having to practise a small selection of outdated songs.

My song library contains over 800 modern & classic songs, presented in order of difficulty.

Plus, students can access their 'living notation' from home. This includes real audio, auto-scroll, tempo control, and a loop function. It's way more fun than learning from a book.

Specialism in Rock & Alternative styles.

My tuition is best for fans of Rock, Alternative/Indie, Folk, or pretty much any popular songs from the late 1950s - present.

I don't claim to be an expert in Classical, Country, or Metal, but if you prefer these styles, you might still benefit from some practical theory or ear training tuition from me.

Whatever your preferences, I'll create a learning path that feels right for you.

About Chris

Leeds Guitar Lessons

I’ve been teaching guitar in Leeds, West Yorkshire since 2014. On a typical teaching week, I see over 40 guitar students, from kids & teenagers to retirees. Many of my students have gone on to perform on stage, record their own songs, or pass grades with flying colours.

My love of the guitar has taken me from a small town in South Yorkshire, to stages and studios across the UK. 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.

My beginner students learn how to master the fundamentals, through a structured library of songs & skills. Intermediate & advanced students learn practical applications for music theory and ear training, whether it’s through songwriting, performing or improvising.
