About York Guitar Lessons

Welcome to Guitar Lessons York! My name is Sam, and I am a professional musician and teacher based in the city of York. I have many years' playing experience - having received tuition from teachers such as Nik Harrison and the world-renowned guitarist Jon Gomm - and have performed in many settings and styles over 12 years. Since earning a degree in Music from the University of York, I have been working as a freelance performer, presenter and music producer as well as playing in a number of ensembles.

I believe that learning the guitar is most effective and satisfying when the teaching is focused on what the student likes to play; as such I always like my lessons to be interesting, motivating and fun. Lessons are a friendly, comfortable space in which the student can progress at a rate that suits them. An amount of theory teaching is optional, whilst different musical skills can be covered depending on the student's interest (such as songwriting, reading music, playing by ear, etc.). I teach all ages, styles, and ability levels, each with the same goal: to help every student take joy in improving and making music.

I would be more than happy to teach you to play the guitar, to book your first lesson or to simply find out more about his guitar tuition don't hesitate to get in touch by emailing info@guitarlessonsyork.co.uk or calling 01904 922625.

Here is what I can offer:

A musical and holistic way of learning: not just boring scales and theory for their own sake, but actual songs that you like and want to play, as well as how they fit in with the overarching web of practical theory, specifically as it relates to guitar technique. We will learn how music works through the songs and genres that you love.

A structured method to progress in both guitar playing and musical knowledge. All foundational and advanced elements of musical theory and practice covered – scales, arpeggios, picking techniques, improvisation, genre exploration, composition, reading musical notation, tablature and chord symbols etc.
