Hello! I’m Paul, a full time experienced teacher and professional musician and I can make you a better guitar player. I have been playing guitar for 16 years now and have been teaching for the last 10 years, and have enjoyed every minute of it!

I have a degree in popular music performance after studying at Guitar-X for 3 years. I also teach music in a school as well as playing in several bands both locally and across the country.

I teach all ability levels and styles. Whether you’re a complete beginner and have always wanted to learn or if you’re a more experienced player and want to advance on the instrument, I can help with any enquiry. I also teach any age, and have experience with working with children with special needs.

Lessons are from my clean, comfortable home in Colchester or I can travel to you, whichever is easiest.

If you would like me to be your guitar teacher then please get in touch and I look forward to hearing from you. In the meantime, check out what people are saying about me on my Testimonials page.
