My name is Brian and I'm an experienced music teacher based in Ryde. If you live on the Isle of Wight and would love to play the electric guitar, acoustic guitar, ukulele or keyboards, take lessons with me and I will help you reach the next level.

Have you always wanted to play the electric guitar, acoustic guitar, ukulele or keyboards? No matter if you are a complete beginner who has never played an instrument before, trying to teach yourself but getting nowhere or looking for the best way to advance your musical techniques, I will help you quickly progress. I'm a professional musician with over 20 years experience teaching students from home and in places of education. Taking lessons with me will give you a solid musical foundation and you can learn how to play Rock, Blues, Folk, Pop, Rock & Roll, Progressive, Country, Celtic, Ambient, Classical, Latin and Spanish styles of music.

Unlike the tuition covering only the basics or just one musical style, I will show you how to play your favouite songs, create your own music, improvise and learn all the techniques needed to play any type of music. Everything will be clearly explained and step-by-step you will master finger-picking, plectrum techniques (on guitar & ukulele), chords, chord progressions, rhythms, lead, triads, scales, arpeggios, timing, melody and harmony. You can also learn theory, notation, songwriting, tablature, how to play music in a band, use a computer to record your playing, multitrack and create your own backing music.

Whether you would like to reach performance level, play the music you enjoy, expand your techniques, perform in a band, create your own music or just play a musical instrument for a casual new hobby, there is no better or quicker way to learn than getting expert tuition from a highly experienced player.


Playing a musical instrument brings a lot of pleasure, increases overall well-being, it can provide a career and is one of the most creative activities you can undertake.
