About the lesson

I keep lessons as practical, relaxed and straightforward as possible. By the end of every lesson, my students always have something fun and musical to practice until the next lesson.

After every lesson, I film a short recap video of what was covered, so the student has the perfect audio/visual reference. Sometimes, these will be "play-along" videos, where I might record a whole song for students to practice along to.

About Robbie

Hello! I’m Robbie, a professional guitar teacher and university music graduate. I graduated with a first class degree and was also the recipient of 2/4 of the prizes, including the prize for best recital. I have since become a full-time guitar teacher and performing musician.

I've been told by my students that I'm "super friendly", "really easy to understand", "a very funny guy" and "excellent at exaggerating quotes"…

I love playing the guitar and learning about music, and I think this carries over into my lessons. I have taught students of all ages and abilities and I also have experience in teaching students with disabilities. I'm able to teach in any style or genre, though I specialise in rock, pop & jazz. I tend to fill lessons with as much musicality as possible; we'll focus on whatever you enjoy playing!

I've been performing music for over 10 years now, in all sorts of different bands and groups: rock bands, funk bands, jazz ensembles, big bands, theatre pits – you name it! I currently run a wedding and function band in which I play 8-string hybrid guitar and sing (sounds a bit crazy, I know!) and travel around the UK. I also have a lot of experience with recording and mixing music, having done this a lot for band promotional material.

Also, feel free to check out my YouTube channel below for some more examples of my playing! And thanks for reading this far! :D

  • 01

    When did you first develop a passion for music and your favourite instrument?

    My first instrument was actually drums, but when I was about 13 I bought and watched the "Red Hot Chili Peppers - Live at Slane Castle" DVD, and seeing John Frusciante's incredible guitar solos made me decide to seriously learn the guitar. I'm still blown away by that concert!

  • 02

    Is there a particular type music or artist that you listen to on a loop without it driving you crazy?

    At the moment I'm looping a lot of James Taylor's live albums. Though I'm always on the lookout for new and interesting music - I try not to listen to one thing too much!

  • 03

    Explain to us the most difficult or riveting course you could personally give to a student of music

    Trying to learn a whole song or album by ear, probably. It's very challenging at first, but it's the best way to get to grips with the language of music.

  • 04

    What do you think is the most complicated instrument to master and why?

    I have a lot of respect for singers, as you can't see much of the inner workings of their technique (unlike, say piano or guitar). Also, I think playing organ must be incredibly difficult as they simultaneously play pedals with their feet!

  • 05

    What are your keys to success?

    To not be in pursuit of "success"! Learning an instrument is about enjoying the process.

  • 06

    Name three musicians you dream of meeting in your favourite bar in the early hours of the morning. Explain why.

    They say that you should never meet your heroes... but since that's a boring answer: Charlie Hunter, Steven Wilson & Kurt Elling. Because I love their music and think they'd be easy to talk to!

  • 07

    Provide a valuable anecdote related to music or your days at music school.

    Play what you enjoy. There's no better motivation to practice!

  • 08

    What are the little touches that make you a Superprof in music?

    After every lesson, I film a short recap video of what was covered, so the student has the perfect audio/visual reference. Sometimes, these will be "play-along" videos, where I might record a whole song for students to practice along to.
