Business overview

I’m a professional musician living in Nottingham. I’ve dedicated my life to music in all of it’s forms and I absolutely adore teaching and passing my discoveries on to my students.

If you've always wanted to learn to play the guitar you've come to the right place. I will teach all ages, no matter how experienced, from complete beginner through to the seasoned player.

I teach all styles of music, but specialise in Rock, Jazz, Blues, Country and Fingerstyle. I can also teach music theory and prepare you for grades and examinations if you so wish. I will provide homework and backing tracks to make learning more fun.

Other than simply showing you the fundamentals of guitar playing, I can take you as deep as you'd like to go into the World of guitars, all the way to complex guitar and amplifier maintenance etc.

I am also a music producer/engineer so we can periodically record the songs you've been working hard on so you have something to show for your hard work and achievements!

If you're an experienced player who would like to delve deep into the specifics of some of the more challenging styles, I can do that too. From gypsy jazz and bebop, to mississippi blues and telecaster country twang, we can explore many fascinating genres if you're up for quite a journey!

After two failed attempts at learning to play guitar I was introduced to Alex. He's a talented musician in a wide variety of styles and an amazing, patient teacher who has devised his own unique method of teaching. At last I'm beginning to understand how music works and put it into practice. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Awesome teacher

Alex has been teaching my son for a while now and has opened him up to many genres of music he wouldn't have even thought of.
He is quite inspirational and is able to encourage and push Ben to try out new things. He has also been on hand when strings have warped and bits have come loose (sorry, I'm not guitar technical!) and has sorted it all out.
All in all a great bloke with brilliant capability and a brilliant manner.
PS my son was 16 when he started, now 17 1/2 and would have a lesson every day if he had his way.
