Put the Work in, Get the Grade you want!

Having been through the Musical Grades himself, John understands the satisfaction of your hard work bearing fruit. For this reason, he offers tuition with views to putting students through the grade system, be that for guitar of theory, contemporary or traditional boards. Each subject and board have thier own way of examining and with John's experience he can guide you on your path to attaining the highest mark possible.


As a former examiner for RGT, nobody knows thier way around the sylabus like John. From Entry to Diploma level, the traditional industry standard of guitarists has long been defined by RGT's methods and exams incorperate scales/chords with improvisation and chart reading, all of which you will be thoroughly prepared for of course.
