Frequently Asked Questions

Absolutely, if you’ve never even touched a guitar before you’re more than welcome! I have taught loads of beginners over the years! Indeed, here at Guitar Lessons Coventry, you are never a beginner for long – we will have you strumming away in no time.

Unfortunately, I just teach adult students. However, Colin Beasley, a fellow local guitar teacher in Coventry does teach young people, visit his website Guitar Lessons Coventry here.

Yes, I do. Nowadays I offer guitar lessons via Skype - it is a great way to keep learning the guitar even when being unable to visit a tutor and pick up a new skill.

I teach all my guitar lessons at my specially designed home studio, located on Coventry. Click on the map below on the page to bring up our location on Google Maps.

Of course, you can take your lessons in electric or acoustic, the choice is yours.

It is really important to get your hands on a guitar before you start your guitar lessons to give you something to practise on during the week! Check out my page on great local music shops to see where you can pick your first guitar - Music Shops in Coventry.

Over many years of teaching guitar, I've found that an hour works best for all ages that I teach. If you have a special need to do shorter or longer lessons I would be happy to talk to you about it and see what we can arrange, however, provisionally all my lessons are an hour long.

This depends on how fast you want to progress. I recommend lessons on a weekly basis. In an ideal world, beginners would have lessons on a weekly basis. However, weekly lessons can be quite an expense over time and people who work full time and/or have families can find it hard to find enough time to practice between weekly lessons. For this reason, I offer weekly or fortnightly lessons and you should bear in mind these factors before deciding what is right for you. Established players can still benefit from weekly lessons but may also want to consider fortnightly or even occasional lessons. If you me know your availability, we can talk you through the options and my available slots.

I teach all day on Monday to Thursday (10 am - 8.30 pm start times).

All my lessons are for individual students so I am currently not teaching group lessons.

No, not at all. I can teach you to read stave music if the type of playing you want to do would benefit from it, most students who play for fun prefer to be taught through simpler forms of notation, playing and listening exercises.

Please note that Guitar Lessons Coventry operates a strict 24-hour cancellation policy. This means that if a lesson is cancelled within 24 hours of the arranged time the student will be charged the full price of the lesson. Should you need to cancel a lesson please contact me at your earliest opportunity to re-arrange.
