“See you next Monday and yes I’m very much looking forward to it!!”
Gavin is truly an excellent teacher!!! He teaches all levels no matter your ability or age. If you want to expand your knowledge of music you’ve found the right person.
Gavin will soon inspire your deeper appreciation and understanding of how the guitar works. A unique teaching style of guitar playing. Making it fun and enjoyable eager to learn more. He has taught me everything I know about guitar. I’ve recently passed my grade 3 with distinction and grade 4 Merit and in December I’ll do my grade 5 exam with London College of Music. Having lessons with Gavin is the best thing I’ve ever done. If you’re going to learn make sure you learn from the best!
He’s charming and friendly he’ll make you feel like you’re at home with genuine enthusiasm and support, he’ll soon have your guitar playing and appreciation for all music on a whole new level! Ever since I’ve started lessons with him I can’t stop playing the guitar.
Thank you Gavin for the help and support!!!

My student is learning bass and qualified last year, but recently took up the 6 string guitar.
Every lesson is different: sometimes I struggle with the formations of chords, and particularly the speed, rhythm and instant reconstruction across six strings with three not-exactly- slender fingertips yet…when that one chord sounds perfect, the swell within this poorly-tuned rib cage rises, momentarily, to meet the kaleidoscopic emotions released within that one down-thrust of emotive expression via this right hand.
I began, tentatively, playing the four strings of the bass, under Gavin’s auspices, many moons ago and have continued to enjoy very much the process and the successes but also the challenge of these journeys…and they are multiple…within the same arena, different styles, different moods, the same charged diversity.
Today was no different…happily!!

Thanks to Fender for asking me to teach guitar for them.
I taught children and adults guitar skills including classical, rock, punk, and lead guitar.

It took me a few minutes to realise that he hadn’t dropped the pick for a few practice sessions now, something quite common with strumming patterns when learning pop songs from Oasis to The Jam.
Notice anything unusual?
The best advice to pass on today from my student is that in order to reduce the amount of times the plectrum falls into the sound hole and keep a good grip in general, use reversible sticky tape. Recommended for playing strong rhythmic songs.
