Zoom Guitar lessons
If you think some lessons might help you get to the next level of playing then why not join me for a FREE CONSULTATION to find out how Zoom lessons work and see if I’m the right teacher for you.
Follow the link or send an email to email@example.com
An informal, 15 minute chat so we can get to know each other a bit.
You can ask me any questions about the lessons or Guitar in general. I can find out what level of playing you’re at, what Music you like, what you hope to achieve through investing in lessons.
(It’s not a sales pitch and I’ not going to pressure you into buying anything.)
1 – 1 lesson (30 min)
Taught via Zoom
If you want, the lessons can be recorded so you can have the replay and easily remember what we worked on during the lesson.
I’ll also email you any notation and other resources we use in the lessons.
You can book lessons as often or as little as you like.
After 15 years experience and teaching and all sorts of people, I think the 2 most important things to remember are:
1) learning an instrument should be fun
2) lessons should get you to the next level
The material you study should reflect the Music you like. It should be selected because it will help you reach your playing goals. This way you will enjoy your lessons and you will enjoy practising too!
Too often, students turn up for lessons and the teacher has nothing new planned. They either work mindlessly through Grades or just pick a song at random and then next week another song and another song the week after that. And you never really finishing anything properly. There’s no progression route.
And if you’re struggling to learn Guitar from Youtube, you’re not alone. It can be difficult to understand what is happening in song tutorials if you don’t have the basic foundation. A little bit of knowledge can go a long way – but you need the right knowledge at the right time.
So, if you think your Guitar playing could benefit from things like – constructive feedback, new techniques, material that will help you improve step by step and theory explained in a way that supports your playing – then I’d love to hear from you.
What my students say
Tracii (Darby's Mum)
“Darby woke this morning and was playing guitar before she even got up!”
“Iain is a great teacher who makes music fun and accessible. My son Hamish loved learning with him.”
“I’m enjoying the 30 day challenge. Your explanations are really brilliant for a beginner like me and at a good pace enough to practice and build on from the previous session. Thank you!”
Ciara (Louise's mum)
“She has really enjoyed the lessons and has learnt so much, I’m really impressed!”
“Go get ‘em man! Can’t vouch for Iain’s method and teaching style enough, if your interested in learning guitar Iain is your man!”
“I’ve learnt so much about music that I never thought I’d be able to learn or understand. Only half way through but the way you teach is amazing. Roll on the next 15 days!”
Hi, I’m Iain Macleod and I’m a musician that lives in Edinburgh, UK. I produce my own music and also record other musicians at my home studio.
I’m also a Music teacher with over 15 years experience and I have a Youtube channel which features Guitar lessons, original Music and covers.
I have played in many bands and projects over the years ranging from indie Hip-Hop outfit Jibba Jabba to Folk singer Robin Grey to “Sudanese Songstress” Amira Kheir. I currently play with moon-rock groove monsters The Sound Rays.
I fell in love with the Guitar from the age of 10 and as a teenager I was inspired by The Stone Roses, Jimi Hendrix and Slash. Later, I studied World Music at SOAS university where I was exposed to everything from Indian Raga to West African Blues. I spent several years teaching and playing Music in London and soaking up all the variety and influences the city had to offer before moving to Edinburgh in 2015.
I have released two solo albums, “Phone Recordings” (2016) and “Kicked Out of Class” (2019). Both are of a rough and ready acoustic nature focusing on a rootsy live sound. “Phone Recordings” is a collection of Slide Guitar instrumentals that got written while busking around Hackney between 2012 – 15. The sound has been compared to John Fahey and Jack Rose. “Kicked Out of Class” features a full band and was made with the help of some fantastic musicians from Edinburgh and London.
I am currently working on new material and exploring new sounds in the studio and developing online courses for Guitar players.
