My name is Dave and I am based in the North East of England and teach my guitar lessons from home in Whickham, near to Gateshead and Newcastle, so an ideal location and easy to get to. I teach most styles: - rock, indie, blues, folk, country, jazz and I am qualified to grade 8 level in both electric guitar (practical) and popular music theory. I am also professionally qualified to Diploma level with the London College of Music (Dip LCM in guitar teaching). I can also teach a series of lessons specially designed to guide students through the Registry of Guitar Tutors (RGT) exams. I have a personal tuition room with a large range of guitars and amps, together with a PC programmed with many apps and programs to make learning easier. It's a very relaxed environment which I am sure you will find comfortable, making lessons easier whilst adding to the enjoyment of your learning experience. Before teaching I played in different bands and have lots of experience working with other musicians and still perform as often as possible.
