Learn how to play guitar with the guidance of a friendly, experienced pro!

Even after 12 years as a professional guitar tutor and literally thousands of guitar lessons, teaching is still very much a passion for me. I can still remember struggling with the first chords I was shown and wondering how they were ever going to be good enough to use in a song!

Learning how to play guitar can be a frustrating process but help and advice from an experienced teacher can save you hours of wasted time and avoid the pitfall of practicing bad habits which can be very difficult to remove.

Guitar lessons with me offer you a practical, real world approach to learning this incredible instrument whatever area of your playing you are looking to improve and no matter your own level of experience.

From the outset of your lessons, all you will find is encouragement and patience! You will learn methods and techniques that really make a difference and help you to achieve the goals you set for yourself.

Brilliant Tutor

John is a brilliant tutor with a keen eye for detail and excellent ability which I have found really helpful over the past 2 years I have learnt from him. He is a patient tutor that will ensure time is taken over the stuff that really matters and does that through doing the songs that you enjoy listening to so that you're not just playing along to the songs you love, but also learning a great deal at the same time. I can't recommend John highly enough!

Unbeatable guitar tutor

Outstanding! John is the best guitar tutor I have been to - and I've tried several! He's a really nice guy and has been able to answer any question I've thrown at him (whether it be theory, technique or practical) whilst willingly sharing the wealth of knowledge from his session recording and live performance experiences.

Most importantly he has ensured that I achieve the goals I set myself. The lessons are never boring and are jam packed with information. My playing has seen great improvement. He's not just a tutor, he's a mentor!

Excellent tutor

John's been my guitar tutor for nearly 4 years now. I did have another tutor before him who I left because I felt that I was just doing stuff that I could probably learn from a book. You are bound to pick up bad habits when you learn guitar on your own or from a poor tutor and these are difficult to put right later. John ensures that you get off on the right foot right from the start - this is a great advantage. He is professional, approachable, very knowledgeable and has the interest of his students at heart. I have never had a boring lesson with him.

I saw John's details online and booked my first lesson, it became evident very quickly that John's method of teaching was far superior to any other I had experienced. His professionalism, patience and eye for detail has enabled me to not only progress but probably more important is to understand where I have been going wrong for years.
John is not only a excellent working musician he has the unusual ability to teach and enjoy imparting his knowledge and skill onto his pupils a ver y rare attribute. I have absolutely no doubt that John Wallace is the musician that can take you forward.

Captain Guitar!

I can't rate John Wallace highly enough for his guitar tuition. He's an extremely accomplished guitarist who covers all playing styles and musical genres, but - unlike many great players - he can also put over how to play. He's patient and easy going but always honest and will help you move on week by week whether you are a beginner or a more experienced player wanting to improve.
