Whether you are looking to learn the basics, or you are looking to advance to the next step I can help. With over 12 years of teaching hundreds of students, I can tailor your lessons to suit your needs.


I provide guitar lessons in Birmingham, UK and the surrounding areas.


I teach contemporary guitar styles such as rock, metal, pop, funk, jazz and acoustic. I can also teach classical guitar.


I have previously helped my students prepare for guitar grades (contemporary and classical) with the following exam boards; Rockschool, Registry of Guitar Tutors (RGT), Trinity College London and the Associated Board of the royal schools of music (ABRSM). I have also helped students prepare for auditions to study in Further Education & Higher Education.


Lessons can now be taught online via Skype, Facetime or Zoom video.


I provide all of my student with individually tailored tuition that suites their needs. I can provide my students with printed materials that will help them progress and keep a record of everything they are learning. I can also offer PDF's and backing tracks.

“I have been having electric guitar lessons from Simon for just over a year. He is a great teacher and I have progressed a lot over this time gaining my grade 1 merit. I would highly recommend Simon as a teacher. "
