About Benjamin Tranter - Guitar, Bass and Ukulele Tutor

My name’s Benji Tranter, and I am local musician and guitar tutor with a degree in music (BMus Hons) from Goldsmiths, University of London, as well as extensive experience as a guitar and music teacher in education. Beginners through to intermediate/advanced level students are all welcome, and lessons are tailored to each student’s needs; I am able to tutor all styles, on both electric and acoustic guitars, including rhythm, finger-style and lead, and genres from folk, blues and country to funk, rock, or even bossa nova. Whether students wish to play their favourite songs, work towards their next exam grade, or learn to write their own songs my tuition will aim to help students to achieve their personal goal. As a professional songwriter and performer, I am more than willing to provide creative song-writing advice and assistance, as well as performance advice and coaching. Furthermore, my lessons will, if desired, cover music theory, allowing you or your child to understand what is being played in more depth. This can include sight-reading, tablature, transcribing, harmony, chord voicings… Although guitar is my first instrument I also can teach you to sing while playing, and also cover bass guitar, ukulele and piano/keyboard. As an experienced back line technician I can also teach appropriate maintenance and care of your instrument, including re-stringing, cleaning and adjusting your guitar. I am passionate about music as a positive, spiritual force, and ultimately want to pass that on to all students through my teaching – I want playing guitar to be fun and fulfilling for each individual - that will be the overall aim of my lessons if nothing else. Also available for peripatetic tuition. To summarise! -All levels of experience welcome -Wide variety of styles taught -Learn your favourite songs -Learn/develop creative song-writing skills/composition -Singing -Music theory -Bass guitar, ukulele, piano/keyboard -Guitar maintenance and care Experience: GCSE Music (A*) A Level Music Technology (B) BMus Popular Music (Hons) (2:1) DBS Check Approved Two years as a music teacher at a South London Primary School, teaching years 1 through to 6, as well as teaching a guitar club every week.
