About

The guitar lessons are open to anyone who has an interest in learning to play the guitar or any other form of musical instrument.

Yes, you can be a complete starter with no experience of guitar playing or someone who has played the guitar for a while. In both cases I can help you to become a better and all-round experienced guitar player.

As a guitar tutor I think from the student point of view. The guitar lessons are there for you and playing the guitar should be fun and an enjoyable experience!

A successful guitar lesson is one where the student feels their level of  guitar playing has been raised. The student can play something new on the guitar, something which was not known before!!

During your first guitar lesson I will draw up an individual and unique lesson plan which is based on your interests and needs. Yes, I will help you to learn to play  your favourite songs, but I will help you to understand playing the guitar and learn how to play music as part of a band.

Really enjoying the Saturday class I’ve recently joined. It’s a mixed group for beginners & more experienced players, both male and female. Eddie teaches all the basic techniques and helps us to create our own music. Hoping to have some one on one sessions soon to help me develop further. Highly Recommended * * * * *

I was an absolute beginner when I first went to Eddie’s guitar class. I’m learning to play both acoustic and electric. Eddie always makes the lessons interesting and inspiring.   …You will not find a better tutor.

Eddie has really helped me to develop my playing.  He’s good fun and if you want to take your guitar playing to the next level then he’s your man!

Eddie de Hamer is a great teacher who knows how to get the best out of his students and improve their playing.  His lessons are varied and always very inspiring. Highly recommended indeed!
