What Is Covered During The Lessons?
I am a highly versatile tutor with over 10 years teaching experience, having taught a broad base of abilities from absolute beginners through to advanced levels I know how to cater lessons to fit the individual students needs.
I teach both Rockschool and Classical guitar grades and I have entered many of my students for examinations from grade one through to eight. I can can also help prepare students for A level or GCSE music exams, or provide additional support for revision or special music projects.
Areas of tuition include:
Of course, enjoyment is the important thing and most commonly students find that they have become a bit stuck in a rut with their playing. This is very common and can easily be overcome with a bit of careful guidance. Whatever your goals, whether you are just starting out or looking to advance your skills, all needs can be catered for.

What Do People Say About Charlie?
"Charlie is a fantastic, first class guitar teacher. He has been teaching my son, Toby for over 2 years, who thoroughly enjoys his lessons. Charlie has a huge personality and is very easy to get on with. He levels the lessons to suit Toby's wants and needs. It is through Toby that Charlie now plays and teaches the ukelele. Charlie is a very talented musician with a deep heart for teaching any age and level of student. I would thoroughly recommend him to anyone wanting to learn or improve playing the guitar (or ukulele!)" Jane - Guildford
"When our son expressed an interest in guitar lessons, we knew we had to find a teacher that could connect with a 14 year old who needed that interest to be ignited. Charlie arrived with his knowledge, experience, cheerful disposition and passion for music which has been firmly passed on. I can't describe what a joy it is for us to hear our son pick up his guitar, out of choice, and to hear the music that he now plays. He so looks forward to his lessons, has made great progress and in his words, Charlie is 'awesome' - surely the highest praise from a teenage student! "
Tracey - Ottershaw
"Charlie was recommended to us by another guitar teacher, to teach our three young children. They look forward to the fun lessons learning quickly, recently passing the rock school exam with excellent results. Charlie is a very talented teacher, patient and professional. We would definitely recommend him to anybody wishing to have guitar tuition."

"I’ve been playing guitar on and off for about 15 years, but being predominantly self taught, I felt I was stagnating. Charlie teaches my son at school and on my son's recommendation, I asked Charlie to teach me. He is an exceptional musician, displaying both technical skill, knowledge and musicality. Importantly, however, he is also a great teacher; he is personable, patient and able to convey knowledge regardless of the student’s ability or experience. As an intermediate guitar player, I feel that my grasp of musical theory, and my ability to apply that theory to my playing, has improved significantly since my lessons with Charlie. I throughly recommend him as a teacher, regardless of whether you’re a complete novice or someone looking to push your guitar skills to the next level"

"Charlie is a fantastic guitar teacher! He has been teaching me for nearly two years and I have really made some progress. More importantly he is fun to learn with and I always look forward to the lessons. If you are thinking about learning or improving guitar give Charlie a call."
