About James Shaw Guitar Tuition

Hi. My name is Jim Shaw and I’m a guitar tutor based in Stone, Staffordshire. I have been teaching guitar for 15 years and have over 30 years playing experience which allows me to teach all levels from beginners to advanced. I offer lessons to all ages either at my home in Stone or via Skype. Over the years I have played in many different bands (both covers and original) – starting out in the local pub and getting as far as New York City! In the early 2000’s I quit my job and began teaching full-time and have since continued to do so. My aim as a teacher is to give a thorough understanding of the basics such as string names and numbers, correct fretting technique / plectrum control. I also cover reading TAB, traditional rhythm notation and general musicianship such as time keeping. Beyond, developing a deeper understanding of chords, scales, improvisation and expression. It’s my aim to make students as self-sufficient as possible. I can also provide ABRSM Music Medals and Rock School qualifications.

Sarah H.'s review on Oct 13, 2020

My daughter has been having guitar lessons with Jim for a few years, she loves her lessons and wouldn’t consider having a different teacher. My daughter is fairly shy but finds Jim friendly and easygoing. As parents my husband and myself are really happy with Jim, he’s a top bloke and nothing is too much trouble for him. During lockdown lessons have been done via Skype which has been fab. I could go on and on, but if your looking for a great guitar tuition from a really nice teacher then look no further!

My son had guitar lessons for a number of years with James. It was a positive experience in that my son's playing ability improved greatly and James supported him to develop his own style of musicianship

John T.'s review on Sep 18, 2020

I’ve wanted to learn to play guitar for years, and for my 40th birthday I was bought lessons with James. I was a complete novice who had never played before and now I’m able to put some chords together into a tune. James is able explain the basic concepts of playing guitar to anyone in a way that they can understand and he can take most songs and translate it into chords to fit your ability. I would recommend James to anyone that wants to learn to play guitar, no matter what their ability.

Callum M.'s review on Sep 15, 2020

Great guitar lessons, really helped me to progress and know a lot more about my instrument. Each lesson is productive and i always have something to work on. It helped me progress in the areas that I wasn’t so good at and has enhance my overall knowledge of guitar and music theory. It is always a good environment because we get on well. Would definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for lessons.

Absolutely great professionalism, really knows his stuff and able to pass that onto his students. I like the fact that Jim sets the lessons around your requirements. Always very positive and helps you with the finer elements to make your playing sound it’s best.
