Guitar Lessons for Intermediate Players

Develop your fretboard vocabulary. Learn practical theory. Train your ears.

My lessons are structured & supportive.

Want to find out more, or interested in a no obligation trial lesson?

My intermediate guitar lessons are for three kinds of guitar player:

Are you a self-taught player who wants to make sure you’re not developing bad habits, and you want to systematically improve your skills?

Maybe you’ve been playing for years, but realised that you’re stuck and want to know if lessons would help.

Or perhaps you can play pretty well, but can’t improvise, or write music as well as you’d like.

Whatever your background, I’d love to help you reach your goals.

Music Theory for Guitarists

After helping countless guitarists with theory questions, I have developed a course of Music Theory lessons broken down into logical steps for Guitar.

Although ‘theory’ usually suggests written exams and lots of sheet music, it really isn’t that.

I explain everything in day to day terms for regular people.

I always relate these ideas to the instrument, so you can actually use the information.
If we are working 1-to-1, the theory topics will be related to the songs you’re working on, and the artists you like, so that it’s much more relevant.

Ear Training for Guitarists

I can also help you play what you hear with Ear Training exercises.

Ear Training is an essential part of musical development and helps with improvising, learning songs by ear, writing your own music, and playing in a band.

My exercises help you make the connection between your inner ear & strings.

Styles I teach

I specialise in Indie/Alternative Rock styles, on Electric guitar. This is still quite a broad genre, as there are many sub-genres to be explored.

If you’re looking to specialise in a specific style, or develop your own voice on the instrument, I’m happy to help. Those looking for a more general approach can expect to be introduced to a whole world of guitar playing.

Please note, my lessons are not really for people who want to learn:

  • Percussive Fingerstyle guitar
  • Blues
  • Metal, Shred, Sweep Picking
  • Classical Guitar

I do have 20 years playing experience, but I simply don’t have enough expertise in these areas. You may still benefit from some music theory, rhythm training, or ear training tuition from me.
