As a full-time musician and song-writer with many years’ experience in live performance, with over 12 years of teaching and 35 years of guitar playing experience, Alex offers the practical knowledge to equip the beginner, give existing players fresh inspiration and direction or run deeper by exploring a mix of blues styles.
Whilst being comfortable with many styles, including blues, rock, country, and folk, Alex specialises in blues – from the acoustic styles of pre-war/delta and rag-blues, to electric Chicago blues, the technique of ‘bottleneck’ slide (as used by players such as Elmore James, Muddy Waters and Robert Johnson), and the open tunings found in hill country blues.
Lessons for children:
- 30 min Weekly Session, £22
This is my recommended session with kids. 30 mins once a week, with lots of practice between lessons!
- Extra 15 min Practice Session, £11
This is a supervised practice to be booked alongside a lesson the same week. A great way to start a young student off on the right foot or just help the ‘reluctant practicer’ knuckle down.
- 45 min Longer Session, £33
This is best for the 13+, great for helping older kids focus on their instrument.
Lessons for adults:
- £44 for 1hr
- £66 for 1.5hr
Note for adult lessons: A cancellation under three days (72hrs), regardless of the reason, requires full payment.
Note for kids lessons: These are paid for monthly, on the 1st, and follow the same term-time schedule as state schools. Since the student is occupying a space in the schedule, regardless of notice, any cancellations or lessons you aren’t able to make are non-refundable.
