Have you ever been frustrated by the fact that you may live in a small town with no guitar teachers, or the ones that are there just do not crack the kind of guitar player you want to be? Fret not! No, in fact you’ll be doing a lot of fretting :-)~ Skype is here!
The first series of Guitar in the Woods was all about the Blues and since then there have been many calls and enquiries to repeat this series. Tony has a formidable blues style and his command and expansion of the genre can clearly be heard in his original recorded works.
'Tony's mastery as a musician is clearly not limited to his playing but also to his teaching!! My son has developed a level of expertise that has astounded me and completely surpassed my expectations of the value he was going to receive as Tony's student!!' - Jenni Abrahams, mother of Liam
'I keep meaning to tell you again how grateful we are that Dylan is having this fantastic opportunity to learn from you. He is playing so beautifully, and he is absolutely enthralled by his music...largely due to your influence on him as his teacher. You are having a huge, positive impact on my boy, helping him to access his soul. Thank you so much for this wonderful gift' – Lisa Jeannes, mother of Dylan
Teaching children is an art unto itself as they are easily distracted and can be horribly bored if the teacher is not on their wavelength. Tony takes children from the age of eight, making sure the lessons are full of smiles and fun. He has two daughters who both play the guitar and has a wealth of experience with children.
Tony has an incredibly versatile understanding of a variety of different styles of music that encompass most popular forms of music today including an insight into more oblique styles. Go here for a full list of all that is available to learn.
There is really no prescribed time to learning the guitar. It is all up to the student how deep they want to go into their studies. Within a few months though you will be playing music you never thought possible. Tony’s lessons are open to all ages and levels and it is never too late to begin.
If you have a member of your family or a friend who you know has been yearning to play the guitar, give them a great kickstart by purchasing 4 gift lessons with Tony, they will thank you forever...
'What you have imparted to me has exceeded my wildest expectation.
It was only to be able to strum a few chords at the beginning - and here I am playing Bach (what, are you serious!!!)' Rod Holmes, student
