Teaching Bio:

Hello, my name is Emar and I am a professional guitar teacher based here in Coventry. I am a qualified and experienced teacher having studied Popular Music & Worship at Nexus Institute of Creative Arts in Coventry, where I specialised in electric guitar, as well as gaining my Grade 8 Guitar certificatation. After graduating from Nexus I studied Music Composition at Coventry University. I am now a professional guitar tutor and guitarist playing for multiple function bands and singer-song writers.

My aim for you is that you are able to have fun playing the guitar, and at the same time are able to achieve your full potential. I use 5 main areas of learning as a base structure for lessons:

1. Expressive Studies (Song Learning Improvisation.)

2. Technique (Chords, Scales, Arpeggios.)

3. Lead Playing (‘Technique’ in practice, Bends, Slides.)

4. Theory (How chords are built, Circle of 5ths, Intervals.)

5. General Musicianship (Development of "Tone" through exploring amps & pedal setting, Guitar Maintenance, etc.)

However, I am fully convinced that each person is unique. This means that I will organise our lessons in such a way that you can have fun, are able to understand everything, and feel motivated. In order for me to this, I usually offer an introductory session that last for 30 minutes and is £15 in which we can explore your ambitions on the guitar, as well as me being able to gauge where you are at as a guitarist and understand the music that you are passionate about.

Teaching Bio:

Hi, my name is Arthur and I am a professional guitar tutor based to the north of Coventry in Bedworth but able to travel to my students to teach them in the comfort of their own homes. I have taken on several students varying from primary school ages to college graduates, teaching various topics ranging from basic chord shapes and scales to improvisation methods and advanced technique. Recently, I have also started carrying sessions at JAM Music Schools as a deputy instrumental teacher.

Upon leaving school I was offered a position as part of my former GSCE music teacher's function band, which I stayed with throughout college. As well as playing in various other bands, I took part in the World Skills event during my time at North Warwickshire & Hinckley College, and played at the UK final at Birmingham's LG arena.

Upon leaving college with a BTEC triple distinction in music performance, I received an unconditional offer at Coventry University and I am now in my third year on the BA Music Performance course. Throughout the past year I have secured myself as a guitarist for several reputable function bands and duos, received regular employment as a dep guitarist from other professionals from across the country and have MD'd for various bands and artists.

I am currently in the process of launching my own professional function band and jazz duo whilst also finishing my degree at university. For more information about my guitar lessons, as well as to book you first lesson with me simply get in touch by emailing info@guitarlessonscoventry.co.uk.
