David teaches at his home and also works as a peripatetic guitar tutor. (There is plenty of car parking space at David’s address). David is prepared to travel to the students home depending on distance.

David has taught at both state and private schools and entered students of classical and electric guitar for Trinity College of Music and Rock School grade examinations, resulting in high pass rates.

As a performer, David is available to play at private functions, weddings, restaurants, hotels and concerts. He has performed regularly in these categories with positive feedback.

David Bailey started to play the guitar at the age of thirteen, inspired by the electric guitar sound of Hank Marvin and a variety of other 1960’s musicians. Later he became interested in both folk and classical guitar. David was classically trained at Dartington College of Arts.

Review of David Bailey  BA (HONS) ALCM by Bill Meadows

David is an excellent teacher. I went to David as I wanted to learn Classical, but also some popular guitar, and blues guitar. David fully understands all of these categories and can teach in detail on them all. He spends whatever time is required to ensure you fully understand every detail of what you need, both during and between lessons. He also makes the whole experience very enjoyable.

Company Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

I love playing classical guitar and playing for an audience. I also love to teach my instrument.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I wanted to earn a living from performing and teaching.

Why should our clients choose you?

I encompass a wide repertoire of various styles of music for solo classical and acoustic guitar. With regards teaching, I record the pupil's lesson material, during the lesson, together with interesting accompaniment. This has proved a more interesting way to learn which cuts out the dryness of practicing.
