Acoustic Guitar lessons – Taught via Zoom

After 15 years teaching 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 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.

“I’ve learnt so much about music that I never thought I’d be able to learn or understand.”


“Iain is a great teacher who makes music fun and accessible. My son Hamish loved learning with him.”


 “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!”


“She has really enjoyed the lessons and has learnt so much, I’m really impressed!”

Ciara, Louise's Mum

“Can’t vouch for Iain’s method and teaching style enough, if your interested in learning guitar Iain is your man!”


“I also keep meaning to say how brilliant it’s been for Beth doing your classes – she really looks forward to them, and in a year of upheaval, it’s been so good for her to have something so positive to keep focused on throughout. She and I were talking the other day about how much she’s learned too. She could hardly imagine back to when she was first learning Drunken Sailor, and now she’s patiently teaching me chord progressions! :-D”
