About

I have been teaching many people acoustic and electric guitar from all age groups on a full time basis for the past 14 years and I am still overwhelmed by the enthusiasm and interest shown by everyone who comes to my purpose built Climate controlled sound proof Home studio equipped with Full PA and Drum Kit, Bass, Keyboards in Melksham Wiltshire.
I am pretty well booked to capacity but never turn anyone away who is keen to play this wonderful instrument. I conduct the sessions/Lessons in a very relaxed manner and tend to hide the theory and teach within the song’s requirements, although learning to play the guitar is at times difficult my aim is for everyone to enjoy learning this very versatile instrument and have fun in the process. I teach all ages of students from as early as 7 years old to people in their 60’s.
There is no age limit to those with enthusiasm; dedication and commitment although it’s true to say that it is easier to learn from an early age.

I currently teach in both Primary and Secondary schools and conduct private one to one lessons currently all online which is very successful . I am a member of the RGT (Registry of Guitar Tutors) and can offer teaching to the syllabus of the London College of Music Accredited Qualification for this instrument if required. I have been fully screened and hold DBS checked and fully Insured and undertaken level 2 safe guarding.

Due to the overwhelming response to my teaching style and progress of my students I have attracted enquiries from many additional schools seeking my tuition style and in order to provide an extended quality service I have formed a limited company Chris Guitar Ltd and have developed my own fabulous team of  tutors who I have trained personally to deliver the exact quality and teaching style that has already proven very successful. All tutors teach with my full support and also hold full DBS, fully insured and received Safeguarding training Please take a look at my website www.chris-guitar.com and scroll to schools section for more information


What I / we help young people achieve

I personally teach in 12 Schools in the county and manage a further 25 schools through Chris Guitar Ltd providing tuition that is fun, informative and teach in a contemporary style that engages the children and enthuses them to create and motivates them to enjoy and be part of something special.
Students also have access to Guitar Tuition Videos and follow the songs and tunes we are learning through registering with my website, this proven very popular.
Playing any musical instrument requires motivation , determination and patience and creates an amazing sense of well being and confidence.
Lets be honest, its good to be good at something!!
