Guitar Lessons in Rotherham

Guitar Lessons in Rotherham

I pride myself on my friendly and warm guitar lessons, taught at my students homes throughout Rotherham. For beginner students during our first lesson we will have a relaxed discussion about your musical preferences, what you would like to achieve with your guitar playing and what to expect from lessons. We will then start to explore the guitar, learning about the guitar itself to familiarise yourself with there instrument. From there we will start learning some basic guitar riffs, all part of a foundation guitar course that I take my beginner students through.

For more advanced guitarists we will explore your current playing, identifying areas of your playing that you would like to improve upon and start building a course around this - whether it is soloing, improvisation or a better grounding in guitar technique or music theory. I also look at 'alternative' techniques to help improve more advanced guitarists to hone their guitar ability.

I am also a teacher that has taken many of my students through graded exams, if they are interested. These have huge added benefits, especially for younger students who can use the graded exams to gain extra UCAS points to enable them to get into the university of their. However, many of my students also learn guitar for pleasure so I have many guitar courses that are not built around grades.

I teach a wide range of different ages, with students ranging from age and above. There is no upper age limit so no matter what you age or musical background I have the guitar lessons for you. To book your first guitar lesson simply get in touch!

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.

If you'd like more information, please get in touch via the contact page or give me a ring!

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
