If you're looking to improve your guitar skills, whether you're a complete beginner, or an experienced player, I am available for professional, affordable guitar lessons that are individually structured to help you achieve your personal musical goals.
I have been lucky enough to receive private tuition from many well respected professional musicians and I hope to pass on the skill and experience that has been granted to me.
I am Grade 8 certified and am happy to provide coaching through graded exams.
I have experience working in schools, I'm fully CRB checked and am a member of the RGT (Registry of Guitar Tutors).
Had lessons for around 5 months with lewis now, a really good teacher with a very relaxed style. Lessons are taylored to your own personal interests, packed full of knowledge and 45 minutes takes me at least a week to unpack. Great guy and amazing guitar player, easily the best in the west. More...
Having been having lessons with Lewis for a while now it does appear that his approach is getting some stuff to stick. He seems to know what sort of things to cover each lesson to keep it interesting and genuinely expand my knowledge and skills. Thank you Lewis
Friendly and really helpful teacher, would recommend.
A very patient and friendly teacher who has been teaching my children guitar for over a year. I would highly recommend him.
I have now been having lessons with Lewis for just over 6 weeks and my ability to play has improved massively. Lewis is calm, friendly and clearly very talented on the guitar. He can play a broad range of styles and fully understands musical theory. I find him very easy to talk to and enjoy our conversations each week. I would happily recommend him to players of any skill level and will definitely continue my lessons with him. More...
I took lessons with Lewis for around 6 month. In that time I have seen my playing improve massively - it got me out of a plateau I had been stuck in for some time. Very good knowledge of funk (the style of music I was learning), friendly, and full of helpful exercises for me to do in my own time. Highly recommended! More...
My 13 year old daughter has been going to Lewis for a while now and has made excellent progress. His enthusiasm and drive pushes her to gain the best of her ability. Her grandad (who takes her) is equally entertained . Top marks. More...
As a complete beginner Lewis has been great, takes things at your pace. Would highly recommend to anyone thinking of learning guitar
I have a mission this year to learn the guitar. Being an old dog this could be hard. Lewis teaches in a nice relaxed style. Easy to get on with. I am learning how much I don’t know and improving every week with new playing techniques and new snippets of famous songs. Very enjoyable experience. Yes I have new tricks :) More...
I've played with Lewis in various projects over the course of the last 5 plus years. From rock to funk, heavy metal to jazz; he's been a constant pleasure to work alongside. Always enthusiastic and creative, I've witnessed first hand how he's strived to push and better himself as a musician. Always on time and with a professional attitude and gear Lewis will always be the first guitarist I turn to, wether it be a last minute gig I need a dep musician for or for a brand new venture. Now, since he's been teaching, he's also my first recommendation when it comes to guitar tuition. I know that the passion and commitment is there and most of all Lewis makes music fun and rewarding because in my 15 year musical career I've learnt is this, is the most important thing. More...
I was a complete beginner when I started having lessons with Lewis, but thanks to his easy going and patient approach to teaching I found that I picked things up quickly and looked forward to lessons each week! He manages to make practice easy and fun with a variety of exercises and games and I now feel confident playing things that I would never have imagined I could play only months ago. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to start playing guitar. More...
A great teacher, especially for a novice like me. Highly recommend him!
Lewis is a great teacher. His enthusiasm for music - and the guitar in particular - is contagious. The lessons are tailored (in my case I'm a complete beginner) and, crucially, Lewis makes them fun. He discovers the music you enjoy most and builds some of that in to his teaching in order to keep you motivated. He is also very patient! I would highly recommend Lewis to anyone wanting to learn from scratch or refine the skills they have already (he is clearly quite a good guitar player!). More...
A very professional guitar teacher, could not have been happier with his patience and feel he has the know how to teach both beginners and more intermediate students.
I played guitar when I was younger but hadn't picked up one in ages since having kids. I've now only had a couple of lessons with Lewis and already he's brought my enthusiasm back. He comes to my house which is so helpful with the kids and is so good with my two year old as well. Highly recommended. More...
I have been having lessons from Lewis for the past few weeks and I am so pleased with how they are going. I am a 40-year-old complete beginner and Lewis put me at ease immediately with his patient teaching style. I have always wanted to play the guitar and with lessons from Lewis, I think I will be able to fulfil that dream! His lessons are well structured and I leave each week with the feeling that I have accomplished something. He adjusts the pace of the lesson to suit my progress and gives me recognisable exercises to practice between lessons. These make the process of learning the basics fun and interesting. Lewis is obviously a hugely talented guitar player and personable and informative with it. I would highly recommend Lewis to anyone who wants to learn to play. More...
