Learn music theory practically and visually with a degree qualified music teacher...

Methodology

When taught the wrong way, music theory can be incredibly confusing, boring, impractical and, rather ironically - unmusical.

My approach includes the use of high-quality visuals to help you visualise what you are learning and see that actually there are interesting and useful patterns within music theory which we can get you applying immediately.

Background

I am a professional guitarist and qualified music teacher with extensive experience as a soloist, accompanist, and band member across various genres including Rock, Soul, Funk, Folk, Latin, Reggae, Gypsy Jazz, Classical, and more. I play Lead Guitar for the band El Misti and we're about to release our second album in 2021.

I have a Degree in Music Education from the international contemporary music awarding body, Rockschool, as well as Grade 8 Electric Guitar (Rockschool) and Grade 8 Classical Guitar (ABRSM), and an Audio Engineering Diploma (SAE Institute International).

I have travelled the world extensively researching world music genres, especially in Latin America. During a 2.5yr journey through Latin America, I attended the School of Mariachi in Guadalajara, Mexico and performed with Cuban street band, Los Jubilados del Caribe, in Santiago de Cuba.

I am originally from the musical city of Liverpool, UK, however in September 2020, I relocated to Mexico where I am continuing my research into Latin American music genres and sharing my knowledge with my students.

Kieran is very knowledgeable about many genres on guitar and has taught me different styles on both electric and acoustic. The lessons are very tailored to my own tastes. Excellent teacher.

Kieran uses plenty of resources so you can visualize and refer to boxes, patterns and diagrams. It really speeds up your learning.

S

I wanted to improve my technical skills but just couldn't find the discipline. Kieran helped give me specific goals with structured drills and I have improved a lot. He is very patient and a good laugh.
