Thank you for visiting my London guitar teaching website. My name is Greg, I am a guitar teacher and owner of Wimbledon School of Guitar and just like you I am a fan of guitar and good old rock n’ roll music!
To many people who come to this website looking for a guitar teacher, possibly You, it is important to know what music I am into. I am aware that guitar students are looking not only for a teacher but also for a connection and understanding of their own passion for music.
My musical tastes are changing but in general I like music that involve playing real instruments. It can be anything from classical music, through jazz, blues, rock and heavy metal. I have recorded and released two CD’s. The first one Under The Same Sky (2008) features my neoclassical rock phase and Dream(2011) features my love for melodic rock and vocal music. Right now (August 2013) I am back into blues (Peter Green, Eric Clapton, BB KIng and many others…) and classic rock (Free, Led Zeppelin, Bad Company…)
I had a privilege of working with some great guitar students in London. I have taught thousands of hours worth of guitar lessons and I have met probably over 3000 unique people who were interested in lessons during my teaching career. Visit Student Success Stories, Greg X TV and Guitarist Blog and Student Events to see them play and talk about their experience with me. When you watch some of my students performing at student events, open mic nights and gigs you might not realise that some of them have never played any musical instrument prior joining my classes.
I also had a privilege of organising special student events with World renowned guitar players who visited me and my students to inspire them to become better musicians. My special guests so far were Greg Howe known in guitar community for his solo guitar work as well as working with pop singers including Michael Jackson and Justin Timberlake (Greg Howe is my current guitar teacher!) , Jamie Humphiries who is known for his work for playing with Brian May and performing at We Will Rock You Musical as well as teaching guitar through Lick Library DVD’s , Alex Hutchings known for his work for Jam Tracks Central and Roland.
My goal as a teacher is to give you the value for your hard earned money. Give you the most accurate information about music and how it works, motivate you to take your skills to the next level and help you to build your confidence so that you can fully express your passion for music by making it your way;-)
I enjoy helping beginner guitar students, intermediate and advanced players and I teach all rock based music genres ranging from acoustic rock, blues, rock and heavy metal. I also offer my music business expertise.
I know that choosing your guitar teacher is quite hard and sometimes it feels quite intimidating to meet a professional musician but I can assure you that I can offer you a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in which we can evaluate your musical potential and discuss your musical goals and find the most effective strategy to get you to the level of guitar playing you always wanted to achieve.
I also know what is like to be a guitar student and I actually still take guitar lessons so I didn’t forget how does it feel to struggle at guitar;-)
I chose to live my life and run my teaching business in the most authentic and genuine way I can. That sometimes makes my life very hard but makes me happy. I invite you to be a part of my guitar community and I would like to offer you a free evaluation guitar lesson with no obligation to start lessons if you didn’t find any value in what I was teaching you.
I have formed recently a new band:
