About Chris

I have been teaching many people acoustic and electric guitar from all age groups on a full-time basis for the past 20years and I am still overwhelmed by the enthusiasm and interest shown by everyone who comes to my home studio in Melksham and the many pupils I teach at Primary and Secondary schools.

I welcome the opportunity of teaching this wonderful instrument and wish to invite you to a week's half day course at Marlborough College Summer School

I conduct the sessions/Lessons in a very relaxed manner and tend to hide the theory and teach within the song's requirements, although learning to play the guitar is at times difficult my aim is for everyone to enjoy learning this very versatile instrument and have fun in the process.

I teach all ages of students from as early as 7 years old to people in their 60's. There is no age limit to those with enthusiasm; dedication and commitment although it's true to say that it is easier to learn from an early age. I currently teach in both Primary and Secondary schools and conduct private one to one lesson.

I am an Associate member of Wiltshire Music Connect and a member of the RGT

(Registry of Guitar Tutors) and can offer teaching to the syllabus of the London College of Music Accredited Qualification and Rock School for this instrument​
