About Rotherham Guitar Lessons

Welcome to Guitar Lessons Rotherham! My name is Martyn and I am a guitar teacher and music educator from Rotherham. I am an experienced teacher of the guitar of all ages and abilities and I always tailor my lessons to meet the needs of the students I teach. Whether you are keen to take accredited music exams or just want to learn for fun, I always help my students achieve their full playing potential.

I teach from absolute beginner to advanced level playing and do have students as young as 5 years old who enjoy their lessons and adults who are into their 60's. Your never too young or old to enjoy the benifits of music making so dont hesitate to get in touch and enquire about the services I offer!

As part of my working life I have worked in various roles within schools, whether that be as a music/instrumental teacher or as a teaching assistant which has given me lots of experience working with young people of all ages. This I take with me into my guitar lessons and have a full understanding of the National Music Curriculum meaning that I also incorporate general musical learning into some of my guitar lessons to reinforce things such as rhythm and pulse. This is particularly aimed at the very youngest musicians I work with.

I studied music at Huddersfield University and achieved a 1st Class Degree in Music. I have also completed my guitar grades and traditional music theory grades which gives me the ability to teach both contemporary and traditional music methods. I have a keen interested in Jazz and complex harmony and I play in a Jazz duet with a female singer performing in restaurants and other venues. I have always been a gigging musician and I also currently play in a function band performing at weddings and other such occasion. I thoroughly enjoy performing and feel it is essential to my teaching ability that I keep my skills practised and polished to enable me to teach the instrument better. Performing allows me to do this. To find out more about my guitar lessons, please don't hesitate to get in touch by emailing me on info@guitarlessonsrotherham.com or call 03455 086739.



Everyone Can Learn the Guitar

My guitar lessons are designed with the student in mind. I've taught electric and acoustic guitar to students of all ages and am versed in a number of styles: whether it's rock, pop, punk, the blues, jazz or even metal that you want to play, that's no problem at all, I teach them all. I've also got a number of students of differing abilities, right from beginner guitarists, as well as age groups: you're never too old or too young to start a new instrument, even from scratch, so don't be embarrassed to get in touch.

Martyn is a fantastic teacher. My daughter has been learning guitar with him for a couple of years now and this year achieved a mark of 91/100 giving her a Distinction in her Rockschool Grade 1 Electric Guitar exam. She enjoys her lessons with him so much as he makes learning fun and has broadened her interest and appreciation of music helping her to play songs she loves to listen to. Inspiring tuition with a really nice man! - Catherine Hershaw
