I have been playing guitar since the age of 4; I have learned a variety of different styles and methods. I teach absolute beginners through intermediate improvers to professionals wanting to improve their technique.
I teach all my pupils songs as early as possible. A mixture of “classics” and modern chart songs that match their age and ability.
Whether you play a nylon string “Spanish” acoustic, steel string acoustic or electric, I can tailor lessons to whatever your musical tastes are. Rock, blues, reggae, folk or where ever you want to go.
Country and blues picking, strumming and rhythm patterns, chords and scales, I literally teach from ages 6 to 60 and over.
As a performing singer/songwriter with BBC6 Music credits and a string of festival and gig performances, I can help with song composition, stage production and performance skills. If you want to learn to accompany yourself then I am your ideal tutor. This is my music website http://nicktann.co.uk/
If you have been considering lessons but are not sure if they are for you then you can arrange a 30 minute sample guitar lesson for £25, if you enjoy it then you can book more.
“Matthew really looks forward to going to his guitar lesson with you.
The lessons are always fun and varied, leaving him very enthusiastic and eager to play his guitar.
We are very impressed with Matthew’s progress and his growing confidence.

“My 16 year old son Jordan has been having guitar lessons with Nick on a weekly basis for 4 years. He started by having an hour lesson at school each week but we found he was not progressing as we would have liked. Nick started teaching him for a couple of months and the difference was amazing! He has been having lessons for the past two years and will be playing at his brothers wedding later this year!
I would recommend Nick to anybody thinking of starting their children to learn the guitar. Jordan really looks forward to his weekly lesson and I look forward to hearing them both playing and singing together while I am cooking! Especially when its the Gypsy Kings!!
Keep up the good work Nick!”
