Hey! I'm Charlie, 33 year old professional musician & guitar tutor from Kings Langley/Watford, Hertfordshire. I first picked up a guitar and started playing at the age of 5, and my love for playing, performing and for music in general has grown into a passion each day since. I have performed and gigged in several bands over the years (rock, acoustic, punk, metal & more), I own both acoustic & electric guitars and continue to write and play many of my own songs, always expanding on my knowledge.
With 16+ years experience in tutoring, I have taught all abilities and all ages (4+) - from beginners who haven't touched a guitar before to very advanced (and everything in between!) My approach is friendly, fun and easy going; I'm patient and always wanting to work at the pace of the individual. Since I have such a passion for music myself, I'm always experimenting and therefore always have new material to trial out with students - making lessons constantly fun and interesting.
I teach all ages across all abilities, from beginners to advanced players. During our sessions we will cover a range of genres and techniques, working together at your pace, with lessons structured around your aims and preferences. With all of my pupils I offer to test out their guitars to determine if they are suitable for learning on and I offer advice on which guitar to buy for themselves or their children based on their ability level, age and music genre interests. As well as ongoing chat via Whatsapp/phone call whenever the pupil wants or needs, such as advice on a new song they like and sending over chords, learning related tips or suggestions on a new guitar. I believe it’s really important that my pupils are learning music they actually love. So we always find a balance between practical learning and working on your favourite songs so that lessons are forever fun and interesting - whatever the genre! My home studio is based in Kings Langley and is available 6 days a week.
