Andy teaches guitar to beginner, intermediate and advanced players of all ages and styles. With an A-level in music, grade 8 electric guitar and grade 5 theory, Andy has developed a thorough understanding of music theory and improvisation and amassed a wealth of experience putting these concepts into play and live performance. Andy has developed his own fun and enlightening approach to teaching beginners and helps lifelong guitarists open up to new skills, musical perspectives and approaches to playing. He encourages confidence by remaining patient, sensitive, and open to students’ individual tastes, abilities, and unique strengths.
"I have played guitar from an early age and it has always been my passion. I am very fortunate to be able to use my love of the guitar in the field that I work, teaching students to either play the guitar from scratch or to improve current skills and knowledge is a pleasure and something that I will never take for granted".
"Watching my younger guitar students taking their first tentative steps with a guitar and following them on their musical journey to play live on stage, achieve guitar grades certificates or just jam with their friends is an amazing experience. Also helping already skilled guitarists with specific areas of need or new styles is very rewarding and always offers an opportunity for me to learn something new because you never stop learning."
Some kind words from a couple of my electric and acoustic guitar students: -
“Andy is a hugely talented guitar player – very versatile in musical styles, can play just about anything virtually immediately and when demonstrating gets it right first time. He has good music theory knowledge, is good at explaining things, and is patient with those less talented than him!” (Rick Kirkup)
“I have been going to Andy for a few weeks now, and he has made a great difference to my attempts to learn the guitar. He is dealing with a pupil 50 years his senior, but he shows great understanding of my needs. He regularly alters how I play music to accommodate a hand injury sustained many years ago, and this has given me the desire to carry on and learn when otherwise I would struggle. Andy's studio is the perfect environment in which to learn. I would recommend him to anybody of any age who wishes to learn guitar.” (Peter Cracknell)
