I offer 3 lesson lengths on all instruments (guitar, mandolin, 5 string banjo)
30 minutes (£15) – Mostly for complete beginners, but also suitable for those who would like to focus on a specific aspect of playing for a short time.
45mins (£19) – I offer this just an alternative to the hour long lesson, where we can go through a good amount of material without being overwhelmed. Also good if your relatively new to playing due to the sore fingers factor/
One Hour (£25) – The most popular lesson length. Plenty of time to get to grips with, and practise the material. I don’t try and cram too many ideas into any lesson as it can become an overload of information pretty quickly, but I’m also happy to go through a lot of material if you prefer to get some ideas and work on them at home.
What Do I Need To Bring To a Lesson?
Really only yourself and a guitar. If you can’t bring a guitar to your lesson, I have a spare guitar that you are welcome to use. It’s also very handy if you have a way of recording the key points of the lesson, on a phone for instance. If this isn’t possible, I can video the main points for you, and send the video on an email. I also supply the written music (in guitar tab format) of the material that’s played, with a guide of how to read tab if required.
Confirmations and Cancellations
A lesson can be booked by email or phone, and I ask for a mobile phone number just in case we need to cancel or rearrange. Cancellations happen, and as much notice is possible is appreciated as it gives me a chance to fill the lesson space, which in turn means I can continue offering lessons. In the event of a short notice cancellation, we can rearrange if possible, but the fee for the lesson may be payable if under 24 hours notice.
