Guaranteed Success and Rapid Improvement with Unique Teacher
Hello, my name is Mathew and I am a guitar teacher based in Brockley, South East London. I offer guitar lessons including a variety of genres such as: Rock/Acoustic/Blues/Jazz to name a few, even if you want to learn reggae or funk I am experienced in those genres to accommodate your needs.
I started teaching about 4 years ago in South Wales and have continued my practice since moving to London in 2006 (I still teach in South Wales 2 days a week!) I also work as a session musician, composer and music journalist when I'm not teaching (or studying for my degree!) so I am quite knowledgeable of a lot of aspects within the music industry, which I find helps me in my teaching as I can relate aspects of guitar teaching to experiences within the music industry.
Teaching is a great passion of mine and I hope to continue to do it for the foreseeable future and I am also writing a guitar book which I hope to get published in the near future. I feel that my teaching methods are unique and very efficient, enabling you to rapidly improve on the guitar whilst learning some useful music theory knowledge along the way. I am free most days of the week to teach so please do not hesitate to get in touch with me to arrange a lesson by phoning me or emailing me.
My myspace is available on my profile, however I have a more 'teaching oriented' website at www.londonguitarlesson.com (its quite basic because I didn't want to pay BT anymore for doing it for me!)
Look forward to seeing you!
