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.

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 .

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.

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.

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 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.
Learning any instrument should be a fun and rewarding experience, I am passionate about music and hope to pass this onto all the students I teach.
I have been teaching guitar, bass and ukulele since 2000. Throughout this time, I have worked with several different organisations. These include the Derbyshire City and County Music Partnership, Sheffield Music service, HI Gain Guitar school and Harmony Music school. At present I still work along side the Sheffield Music Service as an accredited teacher. This gives me access to professional development courses as well as an enhanced DBS certificate. A recent observation judged my lessons as outstanding.
Through teaching guitar, I have had the pleasure of see many of my students grow into well round musicians performing in bands and working in the music industry. Students range from beginner to established players looking to refine their skills. Everyone is welcome, and I teach students from the age of 7 right through to retired people looking for a new challenge.
Through teaching guitar, I have been interviewed for the guitar tutor magazine as well as being feature in the Guitar techniques magazine.
Aside from teaching I have worked in many bands over my career playing in venues across the country from theatres to clubs and everything in between. One of my claims to fame is performing in front of both Prince William and Prince Harry.
As well as teaching and gigging, I also work for the London College of music as an examiner. For this I travel around the country conducting exams in Guitar, Bass and Ukulele from the beginner stage right through to diplomas in performance and teaching. This work has not only seen me travel across the U. K but I have also completed 2 exam tours of Australia and New Zealand as well as trips to Greece, Cyprus and Ireland.
