Acoustic guitar lessons at mine/yours/centres (in London) or via skype (worldwide)
The steel string acoustic guitar is used for most styles of popular music. It can be strummed with a pick or played with your fingers, or a combination of both. To determine which guitar shape is for you, read this article comparing different guitar sizes and including a video explaining the difference in different guitars’ tone & comfort of play.
I give acoustic guitar lessons of all levels, and teach everything from early blues & ragtime through to folk, rock, pop & indie music. I also teach acoustic bottleneck/slide guitar, a different fun realm of guitar playing in itself.

There are many styles of acoustic guitar that you may not have tried -slide, fingerstyle, blues, ragtime, folk, plectrum style. Try something new!
Perhaps you play well but don’t understand what you are playing? My acoustic guitar lessons will teach you how to ‘crack the code’ and learn the theory you use on the instrument, leaving out what is not.
Acoustic guitar lessons for singers
Struggling to play and sing at the same time? In my acoustic guitar lessons, I can show you the best ways to deal with this with ease.
Twelve String Acoustic Guitars
12 string acoustic guitars are also available, and sound great! I do not recommend the 12 string guitar for beginners due to the extra left hand strength required.
If you can play the 6 string acoustic guitar already, you will be able to play the 12 string. But you will feel the difference in your left hand!
The nylon string acoustic guitar, also known as the classical guitar, is a different instrument.
