I'm James, a professional guitar teacher and musician based near Hendon - The closest stops on the tube to me are Hendon Central and Collindale and my house is directly on the 113 bus route.
I have experience teaching all ages from complete beginner (basic chord strumming and melodies) to advanced (advanced chords, picking techniques, legato, sweeping, tapping, shredding, improvisation etc).
My lessons are completely tailored to you whether you would like to learn your favourite songs, styles, improve your technique, improve your music theory, improvise or achieve grades.
I also sing and can help students learn to sing and play the guitar at the same time, this can also be developed into helping students write their own songs.
Lessons are held in a friendly, informal atmosphere where students are encouraged to enjoy learning and playing the guitar, I have amps and guitars here that you are welcome to use in the lesson if it is an inconvenience to drag them across London.
Prices are as follows:
1 Hour Lesson at my house in Hendon - £25 (I may be able to travel to your house if you would prefer - travel expenses are usually around £3-5 pounds on top of the lesson price).
If you would like to organise a block of lessons, I offer a discounted package of 5 lessons for £100 (for lessons at my house only)
I find that students sometimes find motivation by learning with a friend. if this is the case I can offer a discounted price of £30 per hour (£15 each) which would save you £10 each per lesson. I also offer further discounts from block bookings, please call/email for more details.
I am a member of the Registry of Guitar Tutors and I have completed the ABRSM NSPCC Child Protection Awareness in Music Course. I have also studied at the ICMP (Institute of Contemporary Music Performance) under some of the best teachers in the country where I gained a higher diploma with distinction.
So if you're just starting out and want to learn your favourite songs or you're looking to take your playing to the next level then please give me a call/email!
