I specialise in electric guitar yet can teach acoustic no differently, I’ll teacg your preferred way of learning as everyone learns differently. There’s theory based where you can learn to read music along the way or purely practical based where you can learn the guitar with no theory involved. The genres I can teach can be: Rock, Blues, Funk and many more. You don’t need any experience at all :)
I have been playing guitar for 16 years and teaching music for 3 years. I have been involved in a variety of different bands and ensembles within that time. My main focus throughout this time has been all kinds of rock music but I also have lots of experience in metal and acoustic singer/songwriter styles. I qualified from Leeds College of Music, gaining a 2:1 degree in Music Production and Performance, and possess a passion for music and teaching. I have recently completed a Post Graduate Certificate of Education in Music at Edge Hill University, achieving a Distinction in the process.
I take a very professional approach to teaching and I usually like to start the student off with a song to allow them to enjoy playing immediately. No matter what their ability I find a student is always able to learn a song they know and with this approach they progress much faster. I can take you all the way from a very beginner through to advanced levels. I take a practical and direct approach and would expect the student to be involved from the very beginning.
I'm a professional Music lecturer and tutor, Guitar teacher and Bass tutor based in the West Midlands. As a Music tutor/instrumental tutor I have 1000+ hours of teaching experience, I hold a Popular Music Degree and in a College employment setting I have 14+ years experience of teaching college students from ages 16+ to adults in a range of levels (1-5).
I know every student’s journey is different, and my aim is to meet each student where they’re at, learning through Music we discuss their aims and develop the curriculum to develop their understanding.
As a musician I play in a variety of bands and performance situations as well as session work for bands and for artists up and down the UK.
I’m a Bass player for a Midlands based punk band who have released three albums and with this I have played festivals around the UK.
I play Guitar for a folk/rock band, a high end function band and also for a Queen tribute band.
As a teacher I work closely with pupils to develop personal goals, and work together on a simple plan on how to reach them. I believe understanding the reason the student is taking lessons and playing guitar/bass or embarking on other musical developments is fundamental to providing quality tuition, so I strive to create plans with the pupil to support their aims. Each lesson always keeps the pupil’s individual goals at its centre, and is created to develop musical fluency.
Ultimately I teach the student to teach themselves by understanding core musical concepts and developing a base of fundamental skills, these include; Ear Training - learning how to recognise the chords in any given song by ear; Strumming and Picking/Fingerpicking Technique - fluency with all standard right hand techniques is a must, and I teach these prioritising what is commonly used in their favourite styles; Reading TAB as well as Staff notation.
Creative Playing, Song Writing, and Improvising is my favourite area of playing and teaching as it helps learners find their own voice! I help to build knowledge of music theory in a practical and applicable way, exploring new concepts that will enable students to discover new sounds.
Again, this is catered to their aims - if they wish to write songs we'll look at some of their favourite artists/genres, see what they're doing, and set some aims for targets to write using some of their techniques.
If learners want to improvise, we'll explore some of our favourite improvisers - what scales to they use, how do they shape their phrases, and what articulation techniques are employed.
If learners have experience playing but need to improve techniques I can show drills and exercises that will make them a better player.
We explore a lot of aspects - from how to move economically; where to have tension and where to avoid it; tonal possibilities as well as how to structure your practice so you get the most for your time, whether you have a little or a lot.

When my son (11) wanted to learn to play the guitar we looked around for a tutor to teach him and are very happy to have found Campbell. I could write this review myself explaining how his playing has developed and progressed over the last 9 months and how good Campbell is at encouraging him etc. However since it is my son who is getting the lessons I asked him instead and he said: "playing guitar is cool, but playing with Campbell is much more fun. We would definitely recommend Campbell.
Audrey Tweedie, Airdrie
Campbell is pleasant, patient and takes time with his students, nothing is ever a bother, my nine year old shouts Campbell's here the minute she sees his car, he is also teaching my 50 year old husband, and we have nothing but praise for him .
K. Hart, Newarthill
Campbell has taught my son from the day he had his first Guitar. My son is not only able to play with confidence but at a level where if wanted has the ability to take on his own students at only 17years old.
A. Dunn, Carluke, Wishaw
Campbell has been teaching my son for almost two years. Campbell is very professional and enthusiastic. My son enjoys his lesson very much. Campbell is good at motivating and encouraging my son to practice. I highly recommend Campbell as a guitar tutor.
A. Campbell, Airdrie
We have had Campbell as our daughter's tutor for over six months and he has helped her a great deal. He seems very thorough in his approach and more importantly he shares his love of the guitar and music and has increased her confidence no end.

I have acquired a wealth of experience within the music business, with a semi-professional involvement that has spanned over thirty years. I didn’t pick up the electric guitar until I was seventeen, but I was playing in a band within six months due to my obsession and methodical self-teaching.
I now play several related instruments i. e. acoustic guitar, bass, banjo, ukulele, mandolin and the diatonic harmonica. I offer lessons on all these instruments.
I became a music teacher at a relatively late stage in my career, in fact it happened almost by accident! I had just been made redundant from an engineering position, and was killing time in a local music shop by trying out a guitar (October 2002). The proprietor was evidently impressed with my playing, because he asked if I was interested in taking on students. My first students were all originally customers of this shop (Muzart, in Bishop’s Stortford). Another local music shop in Harlow (Tones) has also been kind enough to allow me to advertise in their premises for students. I have since become a member of the Registry of Guitar Tutors. and the Musicians Union.
I consider myself as one of the lucky people whose hobby and interest have grown into a successful living.
My name is Timmy and I have been a guitar teacher for over 10 years and a music teacher for 5 years.
Throughout the years I have learnt all tricks and trades. From industry secrets, to producing methods, my vast past in the industry has helped me get to where I am today.
If you are interested in learning guitar, or gaining extra knowledge in your GCSE/ A level subject I am here to help and supply resources only available through me.

Deive M. One to One Tuition Piano - Keyboard - Guitar - Bass - Drums - Theory £32 for a one hour lesson, reduced to £29 if paid in advance, and the first one is also only £29.
Length and frequency of lessons are flexible. All ages welcome. I am able to teach students to play any songs or pieces they like and not make them learn any they don’t like. I teach them to play by ear and by notation. I also teach them how to improvise, and speak their mind musically. I have 18 years experience in this line of work, and for 17 years now it has been my full-time occupation. I have studied music at Los Angeles Musicians Institute and Cambridge Anglia Ruskin University. My name is pronounced ‘Dave Montaig’. ‘Deive’ is short for Deiven. Students can choose to learn any or all of the instruments I teach. They do not have to own an instrument to spend part of their lesson learning it. Students do not have to learn to read conventional sheet music. Furthermore, I do not teach it to beginners. I do teach it to those who want to learn it, but only after they have learnt my own ‘RSMR’ notation system. I don’t want to give them an overcomplicated, incorrect view of music that may make them give up. RSMR is the Rational System of Musical Reference, and is not just a notation system; it incorporates a new nomenclature system also. The conventional theory, nomenclature and notation of music contain some serious mistakes. The notation system is overcomplicated, presenting us with a number of things that do not exist in music itself, much of the nomenclature is naming elements of a notation system rather than elements of music itself, and the theory of pitch and the theory of rhythm presented to us do not acknowledge this. Furthermore, much of the notation and nomenclature is imprecise, impractical, inappropriate or misleading, and many of the terms used are given two or more conflicting meanings. Students do unfortunately have to learn much of the conventional nomenclature - because it is so widely used. Many musicians cannot read the notation and do not use it – including many of the world’s most popular musicians – but all musicians use the nomenclature to some extent. All students of pitch-playing instruments should be taught the conventional names of the twelve absolute pitch-tones and all students of chord-playing instruments should be taught the conventional names of the chords, but they should also be taught that these names are bad ones. There is now an enormous library of song notations that are available for free on the web which simply present the lyrics and chord-changes in the song, with the chords indicated simply by name, and every guitarist and keyboardist should learn how to read these; however, they should also learn how those chord-names are far from good ones. I have no problem with beginner guitar and bass students being taught conventional ‘tablature’ notation, and I often give them tabs that have been published on the web. The only difference with my own tablature is that it includes timing details; conventional rhythmic-timing notation is not compatible with guitar tab, but my rhythmic-timing notation is compatible with any system of pitch notation. I do teach ‘grade’ exam courses if requested, and have taught those from the Trinity, ABRSM and Rockschool awarding bodies, but I don’t teach these to an absolute beginner. They present rudimentary music theory as little more than the rules of a bad system of musical reference stated as if it is a good one. I teach the real rudiments of music, and this does not involve introducing such things as the sharp, the flat or the time signature. The sharps, flats and time signatures we are presented with in the notation are elements of notation, not music, and they are in the notation because the notation system is overcomplicated. The sharp and the flat came from the use of a pitch-staff which makes room for only seven of the twelve musical pitch-tones, and the time signature came from using different single note and rest symbols to indicate different rhythmic durations and then allowing them to change which durations they represent. The twelve absolute pitch-tones of the Western musical pitch-tone system should have been given permanent identities, not temporary identities which are dependent on which key or chord they temporarily belong to. And note duration should have been measured in beat-value, not semibreve-value. Semibreves do not exist in music. I came to realise and understand the main mistakes in the theory, nomenclature and notation of music before I ever started teaching, and this was one of the reasons I went into teaching. It caused me to confront these mistakes head on and find the solutions. Some of these solutions had already been proposed by others, and some had not. The staff design I use for keyboard and general-purpose pitch notation has been around for almost two centuries, although I have presented it in a particular way that is unique and improved, but the rhythmic-timing notation system I use with all my students, no matter what the instrument, is entirely of my own invention. I also have invented numerous other music learning aids that translate what we hear into something we can see.
