I am a young, enthusiastic, Manchester-based guitar tutor, who recently finished a BMus in Popular Music Performance Studies at the Royal Northern College of Music. I have almost 15 years playing experience as a guitarist, half of which has involved live performance across the UK and abroad in Greece, Spain and Gibraltar.
With a specialism in Rock, Jazz, Blues and Alternative modern styles, I have been an open-minded and technically diverse musician with broad knowledge of the music theory which applies to those genres. This ensures I will always be able to provide answers for young musicians wishing to explore these musical avenues.
Besides having great knowledge of electric guitar, I also have a good level of understanding of acoustic guitar, bass guitar and ukulele, meaning that musical concepts that come from other instruments can be explored and applied in practice, on the spot.
Ben is teaching Millie aged 9 guitar. He is so patient and encouraging that she looks forward to her weekly lessons and is getting on very well. I am very satisfied and would happily recommend Ben to anyone looking for a music teacher.
Ben is very diligent and patient with our children. He teaches our son electric guitar and our daughter piano. He has an excellent breadth of knowledge of a variety of genres, and teaches my son in a less formal format which suits some difficulties he has in paying attention. Ben always emails notes on the lesson and music to practice, and works around of schedule, which is very helpful.
Ben is a truly exceptional guitar tutor.
He is extremely patient, always encouraging, and unfailingly logical. He always sets the level of challenge just outside my comfort zone which has really accelerated my learning. He clearly understands music theory and can convey that knowledge in a way I can understand. The way each lesson neatly and musically builds on the previous one is extremely satisfying and really cements learning. Bespoke notes emailed after each lesson are invaluable, guiding my learning through the week until the next lesson.
I intend to keep Ben as my guitar tutor for as long as he'll have me. Anyone reading this should consider themselves very lucky to have found him.
Ben is a really good teacher. I take lessons 3 weeks and as he said "professional, affordable and fun".If you looking for someone who can help you to reach your goal with music and guitar he is the right person!
The best tutor you could ask for not only patient but knows exactly how to teach,couldn't recommend more !
My son is really enjoying his lessons with Ben. He seems very patient. My son says he helps you to learn in a fun way.
