Hello! Welcome to the online home of FRET BUZZ.
I am a Guitar Teacher based in Ingleby Barwick, Stockton-on-Tees.
Playing an insrument, any instrument, should be fun! That's always been my philosophy. I believe that once a student has learnt the basics they should start to play the songs that they want to, as soon as possible.
Whether you are a beginner or an improver and want to play Rock, Blues, Metal or Pop, on acoustic or electric guitar, I have lessons that can be individually tailored for you.
Whatever music you like, from Abba to ZZ Top, Bullet for my Valentine to Duane Eddy, I can help you to start playing and then go on to achieve your goals.
For the budding Joe Satriani or Gary Moore I can provide lessons on practice techniques, exercises and scales.
Maybe you are working on a school project and need a little help. Perhaps you have been playing for a few years and have got stuck in that same old routine every time you pick up the guitar! Or do you just want to strum along to your favourite tunes?
Why not look at the services I offer and get in touch.
Here are just some of the services I can provide:
One to one tuition, individually tailored for each pupil's interests and abilities.
Lessons in Lead playing and improvisation.
Lessons on Scales, key finding and chord construction.
How to read guitar tab.
All lessons fully tabbed and with charts and diagrams.
Ear training. Learn how to "hear" what your favourite guitarist is playing, then put it into action for yourself.
Amp and guitar (right or left handed) provided for lesson.
Coffee provided for Mum or Dad sitting in on lesson!
Please get in touch with me for more details.
I have been playing guitar now for well over 30 years.
During this time I have constantly gigged with various local bands, playing Rock, Blues, Indie and Pop. I have experience recording in studios and at home. These recordings have included 2 albums and numerous demos.
I have over 20 years experience teaching guitar to all ages from 7 to 75.
