Want to play classical guitar?

Welcome to Ainsdale Guitar Tuition.

I’m John Hill.  I teach classical guitar.

If you are interested in lessons call me on 1704 572676 or e mail me on jghill1956@gmail.com  Do browse  this site and check out the testimonials page.

I’m based in Ainsdale  Southport  a few minutes walk from  Ainsdale Beach.

I have performance qualifications in classical guitar to advanced level through the Associated Board of The  Royal Colleges of Music (ABRSM) and hold their mandatory qualifications in music theory.

I also hold a Diploma in Music through the Open University.

I have over twelve years experience teaching the guitar and music theory.

My music qualifications are underpinned by over thirty years broader experience in training and education; I hold further qualifications linked to learning methods.

I teach people of all ages -my youngest pupil started aged six years old and I’ve had people aged over 80 take guitar lessons for the first time in their lives.I offer lessons for complete beginners and more experienced guitarists  looking to improve their playing. I focus primarily upon the classical guitar.

Students  learning  classical guitar follow a structured programme which enables them to develop at their own pace. I mainly follow the  grade structure of the Associated Board of The  Royal Colleges of Music (ABRSM) which provides an excellent framework for students and myself to measure progress.

I also offer the classical guitar grade syllabus of the London College of Music(LCM) as  another  option where it is more appropriate for the student. The ABRSM and LCM are both established exam boards with international recognition. If you want to gain qualifications  I’ll offer guidance about which route to follow, give advice when to  enter exams and help you be well prepared.

There is no compulsion to take exams, the aim at Ainsdale Guitar Tuition is to equip people to play the music they enjoy. Every guitar student is unique and my role is to provide the instruction, guidance, challenge and support to help people make progress.

How much do I charge?  There’s no charge for the first meeting. After that it’s either £17-00 per lesson or £55.00 for a block of four lessons. [Most students prefer the four lesson option.]

How long are the lessons? Lessons are 30 minutes long, and delivered on a one to one basis.

[Lesson availability update November 21st 2022. Since re-opening after Covid I have had a high lesson uptake. I currently have limited weekly and fortnightly slots available. However, there are  students who sometimes take a break from regular lessons. So if you are serious about learning the classical guitar do get in touch and I will try to offer you a lesson slot as soon as possible.]

To book an initial meeting call me on 1704 572676 or e mail me on jghill1956@gmail.com

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards
