Richard has been teaching rock guitar to my son since he was aged 6 and offers a non-traditional and fun approach to learning the guitar, accompanied with instilling a love & appreciation of rock music. If you’re after a very formal, exam-based music “grade” style of teaching, then Bath Guitar School is possibly not for you or your child. But of course, playing the electric guitar isn’t really about that, and Richard’s approach includes regular band workshops & performances for that real band experience plus individual performances uploaded to YouTube which enhance the weekly tuition sessions. Music theory is included in lessons, but in such an incidental way that it doesn’t feel like a chore.

Richard encourages parents (particularly of younger children) to sit in on lessons which is useful for monitoring and encouraging progress in the early days. As time goes on, it is clear Richard has a nice rapport with my son and I look forward to seeing his further progress over the coming years.
