Methodology

>> Interactive Notation App

I have created custom courses for a wide range of songs and techniques, based on student requests, using a state-of-the-art interactive guitar notation app which allows you to follow the tablature interactively, slow down the audio, loop sections, etc. You will have access to these courses to practice independently as much as you like, forever.

>> Studio Multitracks

I have the original individual instrument multitracks for dozens of hit songs with full transcriptions so that we can learn directly from some of the best guitar and bass performances ever put to tape, as if you were in the control room listening to them. Including artists such as: David Bowie, The Doors, The Eagles, Nirvana, The Rolling Stones, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Stevie Wonder, The Clash, The Beatles, Bob Marley, Marvin Gaye, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Police, REM, Queen, Creedence, Dire Straits, The White Stripes, Blue Oyster Cult, Deep Purple, Muse...

>> Audio Resources

I create high-quality custom backing tracks at various speeds that are included in the interactive notation app.

>> Visual Resources

I create high-quality custom neck diagrams to help you visualise and internalise scale, chord and arpeggio shapes and improve your overall neck vision.

>> Direct High-Quality Audio into Zoom

I plug directly into Zoom via a Helix Floor Multi-FX pedal and a Shure microphone to ensure that you get nothing but the best quality audio experience and no distracting ambient noise from the room.

>> Focusing on Your Goals

So whether you're a beginner looking to take your first steps in learning guitar or an experienced guitarist looking to improve in particular areas, my approach is to build the lessons around your individual goals and interests. I can teach you a range of styles on Acoustic, Classical and Electric Guitar, and Bass.

My aim is to give you the tools you need to be able teach yourself by helping you hone the essential skills a musician needs: listening and reading skills, technical & improvisation skills, a varied rhythmic, melodic and harmonic palette, composition, audio workstation and recording literacy.

We can work towards an exam board syllabus such as Rockschool, ABRSM or Trinity. If you'd like to perform your own choice of repertoire for exam pieces, sheet music and backing tracks can be created once the tracks have been authorised by the exam board.

I also work with songwriters who are looking to develop their songs and/or record demos. I can help with arrangement, creating rhythm section tracks, backing vocals, and mixing and mastering options.

In our first free trial session, we can discuss your goals and work out how we can go about achieving them, so get in touch to arrange a time.

I look forward to meeting you.

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

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.
