Guitar Lessons & Tuition

If you are looking for top class guitar lessons from a professional guitar teacher you have come to the right place. Whether you are an advanced player looking for new challenges or a complete beginner, my doors are open!

I cover all styles on both electric and acoustic guitar, enabling my students to learn through the playing the songs that they love. From rock, pop, jazz, funk, blues, folk or anything in between. Please feel free to watch some of my playing examples in “View Videos”.

From Beginners To Advanced Players

My teaching methods will always encompass the learners style, ability and goals – something that I take great pride in. This can range from working through the grades to developing improvisation skills over jazz progressions.
Whether you are a complete beginner looking to pick up the guitar or an advanced player wanting to take your playing to the next level, I can help.

Extra Studio Added!

I have recently opened another fully fitted teaching studio in Currie for those living further out from the city centre. When enquiring about guitar lessons, please just select which studio you would prefer to attend.

Fantastic guitar tutor. Michael has been teaching my young son for around 9 months. The 1 to 1 lessons have an excellent balance between learning new techniques, working on the Rock School grade books and jamming. At the heart of it all is instilling good playing technique in a really enjoyable way. After each lesson we leave having learned something new to practice and improve on at home to bring back the following week. Michael has also introduced us to new styles of music and broadened my sons interest. Thoroughly recommend!

Michael is an excellent teacher with a brilliant teaching style. He is incredibly positive, constructive, and knowledgeable. Lessons are always fun and inspiring. I'd absolutely recommend him to anyone who is learning or even curious about the guitar.

My son has been going to Michael for electric guitar lessons for a couple of years. He really enjoys the lessons, specially as Michael lets him choose the music he wants to learn or improve on, but also teaches him good technique. My son says Michael is fun and friendly. From my point of view, I really appreciate Michael being flexible with lesson times/dates when we have clashes. Very happy customer here!

Highly recommended! Michael has been teaching my son from beginner level and I have been really impressed with the progress. Michael has a really good teaching style, communicates well and makes sure the technique is sound. Mixing the theory with favourite tunes keeps the enthusiasm up too! My son really enjoys the lessons too so couldn’t ask for more!

Best guitar teacher I've ever had! Started lessons with Michael just over a year ago and my playing has improved significantly. He is always encouraging and explains everything clearly, allowing me to work at my own pace. Lessons are fun and interesting, tailored to suit whichever direction I want to go in. He has helped me to grow and develop as a musician. Couldn't ask for a better teacher.

My son (age 12) has been learning guitar with Michael for several months and is progressing nicely. The lessons are tailored to his current playing ability and musical interests and his technique is showing constant improvement. Michael is very encouraging and my son leaves the lessons inspired to practice and is enjoying every second spent playing guitar. Highly recommended.

Michael is teaching my son electric guitar and he has shown great improvement from lesson one, Michael is current, patient, relevant and motivational. Fraser is so enthusiastic after each session he cannot wait until the next lesson. I have no hesitation in recommending Michael to anyone who is looking to improve their music knowledge and guitar skills. Neil & Fraser Burgess

I have no hesitation in giving Michael a 5 star review. An excellent guitar tutor who shows endless patience and lots of encouragement. I started lessons with him 6 months ago as a complete beginner. Thanks to Michael’s knowledge and teaching methods I am amazed at how much progress I have made already. He also makes every lesson a lot of fun. Such a nice guy who is very reliable and so accommodating.
