About Guitar Lessons with a Difference

Now Teaching Online!! I’m a music tutor and I offer bespoke guitar, songwriting, and recording lessons. I've been a professional guitarist for 35 years and have been teaching for 22 years, I teach electric and acoustic guitar at creative private workshops and in schools to students at all levels. My significant experience guarantees that you'll learn what you want to learn in a relaxed, fun and informal but focused environment. I lived in Paris and Bordeaux for 20 years and I worked with five top artists, including Jackie Quartz, Guesch Patti, and Ray Charles. This enabled me to fine tune my skills and I have a wealth of learning, playing, performing, writing, arranging and producing experience to share with my students. One of my songwriting partners recently won the Grammy award for song of the year with Ed Sheeran. I teach and record from home in Cobham and I'm pleased to say that more than 95% of my existing students moved online and lessons have continued successfully in this way for 9 months now. Whether you like composing music or would like to learn a new instrument, please contact me for any further information regarding lessons and how I can help you improve your musical skills.

Ian R.'s review on Dec 09, 2020

Since I started with Mark my playing has come on enormously. I have set the pace, and at the same time Mark has pushed me to improve, introducing next steps and concepts as I need them. He seems to know much better than me when that is! Mark has adapted every lesson to suit me, and is able to tailor each weeks session according to whatever I want to work on, be it strumming, picking, or a particular song or technique. He is well versed in a variety of styles, and will have something to offer everyone. Mark is very personable, and easy going, and has been flexible in my lesson needs.

Paul N.'s review on Aug 20, 2020

I have been having guitar lessons with Mark for several years. He is a great guitar player and a great teacher. His guitar lessons focus on having fun as well as trying to learn new things and progress. Along the way he has introduced me to several musicians that I had not previously come across. The fact that I keep coming back for more is a testament to Mark’s qualities as a teacher. He is very happy to go at the pace and in the direction you want to go as a student while at the same time introducing you to different aspects of guitar playing. He shows a huge level of patience and flexibility adapting around what you want to achieve as a student. I highly recommend Mark as a guitar teacher and I will keep coming back for more.

Thank you, Paul! You've made huge progress in the time we have been working together, both face-to-face and online and it's been great to watch you grow in all aspects of guitar playing; advanced chord knowledge, rhythm and strumming styles, fingerpicking both blues and folk, songs, solos and all! Brilliant!

Patrick J.'s review on Jan 09, 2019

Mark is an excellent guitar teacher. He has been teaching me for nearly two years. The lessons have been fun, and progressive and I have leant a lot. He is very positive and inspire me to want to improve. I would recommend anyone to have a guitar lesson with Mark. As well as being an excellent teacher he is a very nice person.

Questions & answers

What should customers know about your pricing? (E.g. estimates, discounts, fees, package pricing)
There is a 25% discount for the first lesson and 10% off if a student buys a block of 10 or more.
What process do you go through when starting with a new customer?
The most important thing for me is to see 1. Where exactly is the student in their playing and 2. Where do they want to go and when do they want to be there by and 3. Why do they want to go there!! Someone with a clear and strong "why" can overcome any "how"!
What are some good examples of past customers?
