My name is Brian and I'm a professional guitarist providing high-quality one-to-one tuition from my home based music studio in Ryde.

If you live on the Isle of Wight and would love to play electric, acoustic or classical guitar, I provide the tuition to bring rapid results. Whether you're a beginner, trying to teach yourself but getting nowhere, would like to learn a different musical style, play in a band, reach the highest level, expand your existing techniques or just play the guitar for personal enjoyment, I will show you how to play correctly, guide you in the right direction and help you reach your musical goals.

I'm a qualified music teacher with over 20 years experience teaching guitar, playing in bands, recording and writing music. Unlike the guitar lessons that only cover the basics, strumming or one musical style, I specialise in all the essential techniques including finger-picking and plectrum methods, rhythm, lead, chords, timing, scales, tempo and improvisation. You can also explore many popular songs, create your own music and play along to rhythms and backing tracks.

No matter what your age, musical interest or experience, it is never too late to start playing the guitar and with me you can learn how to play any style of music you enjoy including Rock, Blues, Pop, Heavy Metal, Vintage Rock & Roll, Traditional, Folk, Country, Classical, Progressive, Chill-Out and Spanish. I also teach ukulele, keyboards, notation, grade exams, theory, how to record music on a computer and play lead or rhythm guitar in a band.



Playing the guitar is creative, brings a lifetime of pleasure, benefits overall well-being and can become a musical career.
