Thanks for visiting my profile - I'm Jon Rattenbury and I play and teach guitar and other fretted instruments. I've been involved with music professionally for 20 years.
Do you want to learn the guitar, bass or ukulele? I am a professional guitar teacher that has helped hundreds of students of all ages achieve their musical goals.
NOW TEACHING ONLINE - Since early March 2020, I've been teaching students using Zoom, Skype, Facetime and MS Teams. I can help you learn while we are all restricted to staying at home. Get in touch for a FREE consultation and technical setup so that you can have online guitar lessons.
I have taught guitar in Sussex for 20 years, both privately and in schools, colleges and university. I help students with auditions, performances, music exams and just getting better at playing. Whether you want to learn classical guitar, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, bass guitar or ukulele, I have the knowledge and experience to ensure you can progress quickly.
I provide tuition for music theory and often contribute practical help and guidance for composing and song-writing. I even have experience on lute and baroque guitar, if you have an interest in early music. For those interested in singing while playing guitar or ukulele, I can share my own singing and accompanying experience and help you find your voice.
My wide experience teaching children and teenagers ensures that students will enjoy learning their instrument while making real progress. Past and present students have worked on music A-level, GCSE and IB performances, undergraduate university degree coursework, practiced for concerts and gigs, prepared for auditions and for music grade exams.
I also teach adults, from complete beginners to university students, to other guitar teachers who want to widen their knowledge. Also for adult classical guitarists, I run a regular guitar group. This is great for sight-reading, learning new repertoire and musicianship. It's also good fun and it's a friendly and relaxed group.
I have worked as a music examiner for RSL (Rockschool) and IBO, and helped ABRSM with music syllabus development, so I have a very good understanding of music qualifications.
I have enhanced DBS certification for working with children and vulnerable adults, and Public Liability Insurance.

I'm a young, dynamic musician who's open to all styles and genres.
I am 'Composer in Residence' and teacher of music at Eton College, including prep for ABRSM exams.
I have experience with pupils of all ages and stages, from beginners through to advanced. Including adults and children. I have put many pupils through ABRSM exams, with good results including distinctions. I have also had several beginner pupils who simply want to learn the instrument to an enjoyable level and play with others.
I want to help students with their own unique musical goals through exciting methods; I have a wide plurality of musical experience and an open personality, so let's talk about what you want to achieve.
I work professionally as a composer, pianist (accompanist), jazz pianist, choral singer, saxophonist, percussionist. I've also worked a lot with theatre. I was chapel musician and a choral scholar at Cambridge. I have conducted orchestras, choirs.
I have excellent qualifications: a double first from Cambridge University (in Music) as well as an MMus from Rotterdam conservatoire. I've won several awards for my musical and academic work.

Music Theory and Music Performance lessons in Runcorn, UK.
Experienced peripatetic woodwind and piano teacher.
Secondary classroom music teacher.
Hello! I have a decade of experience in childcare, and personal experience in performance. I am keen to merge the two and teach!
Music history, music and composition lessons in Woking, UK. I have taught 11-19 age students as well as adults for 26 years. I trained at the Royal College of Music, achieving ARCM Teachers' Diploma and Dip RCM Performers' Diploma as well as a Bachelors' Degree (GRSM Hons II:1). I did a PGCE (Secondary Education) at Roehampton University and have taught in secondary schools and VI form colleges up to and including A level standard. I have high value added scores and my students have 100% pass rate with over 80% last year gaining A*-B grades.
I can therefore offer a service to support students with all aspects of GCSE and A level Music to augment whatever they are doing at school/college. I love teaching the set works and tutoring students in composition and compositional techniques such as Bach chorales and Baroque counterpoint. I prepare students for ABRSM and other examination board theory exams, especially ABRSM grade 5 and have 100% pass rate. As a passionate advocate of the recorder and early music, I teach individual recorder lessons up to and including diploma level. I also teach music to students who simply want to learn for the sheer pleasure of learning and am happy to teach any age group. I am also happy to teach adult education music appreciation classes if required. I feel that Music should have a much more prominent place in education and society in general as the benefits of better well-being cannot be ignored.
I am an enthusiastic and committed Teacher of Music with experience of working with a range of children and young adults studying at primary and secondary schools, Sixth Form College’s, and both undergraduate and postgraduate university students.
I am a dedicated and hard working person who enjoys working either as an individual or as part of a successful team. I have a good understanding of how lessons can be planned and differentiated to ensure that every pupil achieves. I make every effort to ensure that my experiences and passion for music are brought to each lesson that I teach, in order to inspire and motivate my pupils so that they too want to learn the subject that I love. I aim to work so that my pupils have every opportunity to better themselves as musicians by means of patient and constructive teaching.
During my previous and current teaching positions I have gained experience of teaching curriculum music lessons and group music-making projects for Key stages 1,2,3,4 as well as teaching GCSE ,BTEC and A level Music. I have also lectured on BA Music courses, with a focus on Music Education as well as lecturing on PGCE training courses for both Primary subject specialist courses and Secondary trainee music teachers.
