About Tim Barratt Guitars

Based in Lampeter, West Wales I have over thirty years of playing and recording experience, in a wide variety of bands and acts including solo work; acoustic duos; rock, country, soul and funk bands; and various tribute bands. Playing electric, steel-string acoustic and classical guitar; bass guitar; mandolin; ukulele; banjo; slide guitar; and dulcimer. I also, make and repair Guitars and other musical instruments. I believe it is important to achieve playing success as soon as possible and this can be achieved by teaching songs and styles of music that you, the student like and, in most cases, choose. Learn to strum and fingerpick.  Learn to accompany yourself and others.  Learn to improvise and "jam".  Cultivate your confidence and hone your skills.  Learn to perform, impress and create!  Nurture a hobby.... and, have fun!! Players of all abilities are welcome (including complete beginners). Players of all ages are welcome.  Tuition for electric guitar, acoustic guitar, bass guitar, mandolin and ukulele. It doesn’t matter where you are based, as lessons can be undertaken “online”, through Zoom or Skype. Follow-up videos are emailed to the student after each lesson, to further support and highlight key aspects of the lesson.

Brilliant guitar teacher. Great at understanding your needs and how to get there as a proficient guitar player. Without Tim I would not have got as far as I have with my playing. Set up my guitar perfectly for my style.

Richard D.'s review on Oct 29, 2020

I have been having a mix of group tuition and on to one lessons (both on Zoom and face to face) for over 3 years. I have always enjoyed the lessons and have progressed well in that time. Tim is very approachable and friendly.

David A.'s review on Oct 26, 2020

Tim has been my guitar tutor for several years now both as a group tutor and individually on acoustic and electric guitar. Tim is an amazing tutor he has helped me progress in all areas of my playing always settings challenges through learning songs and even when musical theory was an element required. Nothing is too much trouble and he's always willing to follow up outside of the lessons if you get stuck or unsure of anything. During lockdown we continued our lesson on Zoom which was fantastic. His qualities as a tutor are second to non he's dedicated, professional, easy to get along with, he understands your difficulties and matches your practice to overcome them. An all round tutor who helps you look after and maintain your guitars and provides the service to at an exceptionally reasonably cost. I highly rate Tim and although he has relocated I continue to use him by video link. I hope he will soon set up Guitar Retreat Weekend and Seminars. I'm so grateful to Tim my guitar player he has gone for a struggle to completely enjoying every moment of lesson and playing. Thank you Tim.

Linda F.'s review on Oct 26, 2020

Tim is a knowledgable musician with excellent communication skills and is a perfect guitar teacher for both adults and children. He provides all lesson materials which are tailored to individual students and is happy to teach an eclectic mix across all musical genres. Tim also has a guitar workshop and has serviced and repaired my very precious 40 year old Epiphone Texan along with my Martin and bass guitars to a very high standard. Most of all Tim is a very likeable guy and his lessons are always achievable and fun!! What more can you ask for?

Kristian H.'s review on Oct 26, 2020

Tim has given me so much confidence and encouragement since working with him. From a total beginner with little experience I feel I have grown on confidence and I can now hear the music and the song when I am practicing. I can also see my own progress and my level of enjoyment just when practicing has gone up tenfold. Tim has a relaxed style of teaching and patience to take the time to go over it again and again if necessary. I’ve always been a big believer in, if you enjoy doing something then you will enjoy learning and this is what Tim’s way of teaching is all about. After each session I am supported by recorded videos of certain areas I need to practice and he is at hand to help in between lessons if I’m struggling with something. I would recommend Tim 💯 for anyone who wants to learn to play the guitar at your own pace.

David D.'s review on Oct 21, 2020

I picked up the guitar for the very first time in Jan 2018 at the Gateway Centre in Shrewsbury, a group session run by Tim, everyone really enjoyed those sessions, it was always relaxed and friendly, it's now coming up to 3 years and because of Tim's tutoring I've made massive progress and now have private lessons with Tim and thoroughly enjoy the experience and challenges that Tim sets as i know he wants me to progress as much as i do. I'm no Eric Clapton but that's not the point it's all about enjoyment and the feeling that I'm slowly improving and that's because of Tim's friendly and encouraging teaching. I can, and have, recommended Tim as a first class guitar teacher, he has the added benefit of serving and refurbing guitars which has been extremely useful.

Julia B.'s review on Oct 21, 2020

I have been learning guitar from Tim, for quite a while now. I started as a beginner and now feel confident enough to play in front of friends and family! Tim uses a very "song based" method of teaching, so I could play recognisable tunes really quickly! He is very patient (he had to be with me!), is a very skilled guitar player and, above all, makes guitar lessons fun!

Martin H.'s review on Oct 21, 2020

I have known Tim now for a number of years initially through a 'beginners' course and then moving into an 'improvers' course. I then decided I'd like to move to having one to one lessons and this has carried on since both in person and lately using video. I can honestly say that throughout all this time that Tim has been professional, understanding and most of all, patient. I feel I have improved enormously over the years and become more confident not only in my guitar playing but as a person as well. My initial aim was to have my wife say ' I recognise that tune' and I have gone well beyond that hope and will carry on improving and most of all, enjoying my guitar playing. I would have no hesitation in recommending Tim to anyone whether beginner or advanced. Apart from that, he's a really very nice person as well. Martin Hart

Anthony F.'s review on Oct 21, 2020

Tim has been teaching me to play acoustic guitar for almost a year now. He is very inspiring, encouraging and versatile in his teaching approach – including to a novice like me. He has a wide range, knowledge and experience of music and adapts his tuition to suit the individual. His planning and follow up for each session is excellent. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to start or improve their guitar music skill.
