Wimbledon Guitar Lessons For Beginners and Beyond-Individual and Group Classes For Adults And Children
My name is Greg and I am a professional guitar teacher and guitarist based in the Colliers Wood/South Wimbledon area. I have been playing guitar since I was a teenager when I first saw someone playing an electric guitar live, and since then I have never wanted to do anything else! For the last ten years I have been teaching guitar full-time and have become passionate about helping my students to reach their musical goals, whatever they are.
Do you feel good about your guitar playing at the moment?
- Are you picking up guitar for the first time and you want to be able to play your favourite songs?
- Are you frustrated with your guitar skills and you feel that your progress at guitar is too slow?
- Have you been trying to teach yourself guitar for a while from books, DVD’s and free internet videos without success?
Playing guitar the way you want is realistic and can be achieved much easier and faster with help of experienced guitar teacher who has helped many people in your situation to reach their music goals. There is no need to learn guitar the hard way by trying to figure things out by yourself and wasting time and money on ineffective guitar methods or trying to make sense of some random YouTube videos.
My students have found that playing guitar is a great hobby and a really fun way of spending time, and I think guitar lessons need to be just as much fun. I have students of various different skill levels, experience and ages, and they all have different things they want to get out of our lessons. Many of my students are beginner and intermediate guitar players who get the most enjoyment from learning their favourite songs to play for friends or simply for their own pleasure at home. In their lessons we work through their choice of songs at whatever level or speed they feel comfortable with, and it is amazing how quickly they find they have a great track list to play at the next family barbecue! Quite a few do want to play in pubs and at open mic nights, and I really enjoy working with them to achieve this, even joining in on some occasions! I also teach more advanced students who want to learn to improvise or improve their soloing skills or play more complicated songs and techniques. As you browse around my site you will see some of my students playing guitar at student events and concerts as well as in their private lessons with me.
However, I am happy to teach students at any level, and there is never any expectation that they should perform in public. I encourage all my students to play with other people because this is a fast and fun way of learning guitar, but there is absolutely no pressure to do it if you feel uncomfortable about it. I just want to help you get as much enjoyment out of playing as I do, and so my lessons will be structured to fit your own goals and build your confidence until you are the guitar player you want to be!
