To all my students and your families, I would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and here's to a Rockin' 2023!!


What I love about music, and performing especially, is it shows a whole new facet of a person/child.
You may have always thought of yourself (or your kid) as shy or awkward, yet having a musical instrument to play can be an amazing outlet for free expression and bring a new found confidence.
I find also that playing an instrument helps to quieten the chatter of the mind and allows me to be fully present in the moment.
Playing guitar is my meditation!

Music is always the answer, in my opinion! What are your thoughts?


Well done to all my students who persevered through the heatwave this week ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

We can all appreciate a guitar, at any age!


Guitar pedals are great for spicing up your playing. Here, I use an Octave Shifter to create the sound of a bass guitar then dual guitars, a loop pedal to record the bass part and also a simple start-stop drum beat. Messing about and experimenting lets your creativity grow too.


One of the best parts of teaching is when a student has a breakthrough moment โ˜‘๏ธ
It could be playing along to an entire song ๐ŸŽถ playing a tricky chord with ease ๐ŸŽผ or doing their first solo ๐ŸŽธ That, for me, is why I love my job ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿ˜Š

This week was full of those moments. Well done to my brilliant students!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘


Had a fantastic morning teaching Blues guitar.
We looked at the technical aspects needed to improvise and play the Blues!
A highlight for me was when Tiny, the dog, came into the room to listen!

How to Tune A Guitar for Beginners (Guitar Basics - Lesson 4) 14/01/2022

***How to Tune your Guitar***

๐ŸŽธ Hi everyone.
I've had a few clients mention that their new guitars keep going out of tune. This is normal. Basically, new strings take time to 'bed in'.

๐ŸŽต I recommend you check tuning every time the guitar is picked up.

๐Ÿ“ฑ Using an electronic tuner such as a 'clip-on' or an app is great for this.

๐ŸŽฆ The following video will help explain this.

โš ๏ธ Pay attention to the part 6m27secs in, this shows how to double check you got it right.

โ‰๏ธ Any questions, comment or drop me a message. ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿ˜Š

Dedication makes for a great guitarist ๐ŸŽธ
One thing that puts beginners (of all ages) off is how the strings hurt your fingers to begin with ๐Ÿ–๏ธBut, with regular practice your fingertips will harden up ๐Ÿ’ช


Absolutely blown away by one of my 7.y.o students today. Over ๐ŸŽ„Xmas he has been practicing lots and can play the following riffs:

๐ŸŽธSmells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
๐ŸŽธWelcome To Paradise by Green Day
๐ŸŽธEnter Sandman by Metallica.

He's been learning with me for less than a year, but is already rockin' like someone three times his age. The practicing is really paying off!

Well Done Alex!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Hey everyone ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป

Howโ€™s it going? I had a great lesson today with one of my students- weโ€™re working on a Green Day track which is really fun to play.
Weโ€™ve been learning all about tempo. Being able to learn chords is, of course, really important but just as important is tempo!
Tempo is the speed in which a piece is played. Sometimes when you have mastered chords and chord changes itโ€™s really tempting to play them fast! (Because, letโ€™s face it, itโ€™s fun! ๐Ÿ˜†)
The tempo of a song sets the emotion and overall tone, so itโ€™s worth taking the time (pun intended!) to work on getting the tempo right.
I often tell my students to practice playing along to different tempo drum tracks on youtube as itโ€™s great practice. If you can play along to a piece of music on youtube, youโ€™ll be able to play along with other people and friends and maybe form your own band!
Keep on being excellent to each other,
Ross ๐Ÿ˜
