If you wish to push your guitar skills to the next level - you've found the right person to help you! Lee is an amazing player and what's more - a great teacher that can help you get rid of some bad playing habits and develop your guitar skills in a professional and patient manner. Lee can help you develop an individual plan for your guitar skills and help you get there. I see a great progress since I started my lessons with him and they're always inspiring and helped me a lot rediscover the instrument that I love. 5 STAR teacher - I couldn't recommend Lee enough.

Lee is a seriously gifted guitar player and a really personable and talented teacher. I have been his student for over a year and always look forward to my next lesson. I came to Lee as a bedroom guitarist of 15 years (having played in a few bands for a couple of these). I was 100% self taught, and was feeling uninspired by my drought in progress. Lee has totally transformed my playing, re-establishing my love with the guitar and my desire to play. In a short space of time, Lee has guided me through correcting flaws in my technique allowing me to play solos and passages I never thought I would be good enough to master. Lee also has an immaculate knowledge of music theory. This is the part of my lessons that I enjoy the most. Lee has a great way of presenting the laws of music theory through real life practical fretboard work. Before having these lessons I would find my self constantly lost on the fretboard, or suck in safe small areas with no knowledge of how to progress ideas. Lee has single handedly unlocked the fretboard for me allowing me to improvise in various styles with confidence and ease. If you are looking for a seriously good and fun way to learn the guitar at any level, I couldn't recommend anyone more suited to the task than Lee More...

Great tutor, will teach any style you want. Very patient but encourages you. It’s a great feeling when you’re playing something you’ve been listening to for years! Also lesson costs are really excellent value for money.

As a senior, 60 plus beginner I must admit to being a bit nervous and apprehensive but Lee soon made me relax into the lessons and gave me the confidence to play guitar. He can teach any style, I started with some blues on electric and am now learning some old classics on acoustic. His fees are great value too which is important. Highly recommended. Vince More...

Lee's a fantastic guitarist, but most importantly a great teacher. I can't recommend him enough, I've been playing for 15 years and he managed to help me progress more in a few months than I previously did in the past five years!

Having 'sort of' played guitar for 25 years, the time had come to get me out of the rut. I had a quick search around and was happy to find Lee just up the road in North London.From the off, he 'got me'. He sought to understand what I was wanting to do and spent the first lesson working out where I was. Now, about 10 lessons in, he is helping me to join up the dots. Now guitar playing has become exciting to me again for the first time in a long time. I can see where we are going and it makes sense because of Lee's brilliant and fluent way of explaining it. The perfect mix of theory and practical tailored not only to my needs but also to my musical tastes. Very very happy and I look forward to every lesson. Thanks Lee. More...

My son is a budding guitarist but spent a little too much time on you tube watching would be teachers showing unnecessary techniques. Lee taught him more in the few sessions he's had than hours on the internet. It's a safe enviroment, he's funny and seems to knowledgeable in most forms of guitars.On the down side I now have Jimmy Page in the bedroom upstairs but I can live with that.At £30.00 for the session worth very penny More...

Lee looks like some funny bloke from a metal band but his knowledge of basically anything to with guitars is amazing. From Flamenco to Thrash metal this man knows it all. I checked him out to make sure he's DBS compliant before I let my daughter went there. Now I have a cross between Ritchie Blackmore and Gary Moore :) More...

Q&A

I get to help others, I get a real kick out of helping people progress and achieve their guitar goals

The thought of focusing on playing guitar for a living. There is nothing else I've ever wanted to do to be honest.

I got into teaching a bit by accident. When I was at music school, my friends recognised I was strong on theory, and techniques, and used to buy me a beer in exchange for lessons. Word got around and I was soon breaking down music theory or specific techniques for quite a few of my classmates most nights. I really enjoy teaching guitar and have been doing it now for years.

Passionate, patient, professional
Special interest in rock, metal and blues
