I booked Paul to play at my daughters wedding. Super professional and easy to deal with. He knew what to play and when and I had lots of positive feedback from our guests on the day who all enjoyed his brilliant guitar playing. Highly recommended.

Paul is ridiculously knowledgeable and helpful as a guitar teacher!I've been seeing him for online lessons via zoom and this format is great. He gives real time construction of charts, scales, chords and arpeggios in the lesson whilst we work through content with our guitars which as amazing because it enables me to see what i'm learning both visually and through physical action on the guitar as well.The way he does it means I can learn way faster!Overall great teacher and awesome teaching methodology.

I’ve been playing guitar for many years, and Paul’s lessons have given me a completely new perspective on lead guitar and what I might be able to achieve with my playing. I’ve only had 3 lessons so far, and I’m already able to play more musically. I’m also getting a better understanding of music without getting bogged down in music theory. Highly recommended.

Paul played me down the aisle and entertained our guests after the ceremony. It was so nice to have live music, he played beautifully.The booking process was easy and he was quick to respond to emails. He offered to play/learn any songs that were special to us and also had his own repertoire. There was the option to have him for the evening too and/or without another singer.Should I need any more live music, I would book him again.

Paul's enthusiasm in teaching motivates me to pick my guitar up and practice. He is a fantastic teacher with a vast knowledge of guitar theory and has the practical application to accompany it. He is very patient and adjusts his lessons to the pace of the student but always manages to keep a lesson theme and gives very thorough and clear notes for the student to take away and practice with.I cannot recommend him highly enough!

Paul's theory knowledge and playing is unmatched in my experience of teachers, he is a real pleasure to learn from. Every lesson is as engaging as the last and his emails post lesson are very useful for notes and for reference. I would highly recommend any level of musician starting with Paul. I do not live locally to Paul and the online sessions are convenient and just as good as any face to face experience.

Paul’s friendly teaching style and his use of technology (screen sharing while using software to produce tailored notes, tablature and chord boxes) bring a whole new dimension to my learning. The notes are forwarded immediately after the lesson so that I can start embedding the learning straight away. The online lessons work extremely well and have the added bonus of zero travel time!

My son has been having lessons with Paul for a while now, with them moving online during lockdown. Paul has really developed his confidence with playing the guitar and he enjoys the variety of music and skills he is taught, with the added bonus of all lesson notes being emailed through to help with practise. If you are looking for a guitar teacher, I would definitely recommend Paul.

Paul's online lessons are well delivered, informative, and great value. Paul is an incredibly knowledgeable and skilled musician, and is great at communicating new ideas clearly and concisely. His online lessons have a number of advantages over in-person lessons, such as the ability to instantly share digital teaching materials (chord diagrams and tabs, for example), and Paul really takes advantage of these assets. I would absolutely recommend his guitar tuition to others.

Paul teaches my three sons guitar. Two have online lessons and one has lessons in school. We swapped teachers for the boys to learn with Paul and started online lessons in lockdown. As a result of Paul’s teaching my boys have really developed quickly and love playing. They play for hours and have started a band. Online lessons are really convenient and Paul sends all the notes and music by email so I can see what they are learning and so they always have notes from their lessons to practice from. I have no hesitation in recommending Paul.

Paul is highly qualified and his lessons are naturally of the highest quality - I have made more progress in the few months I've been taking video lessons than I had done in years on my own and the online format means I'm able to fit in an hour of quality tuition every other week around my awkward work schedule. I really appreciate the resources, notes and fretboard diagrams too as it helps to focus valuable practice time. Thank you Paul!

Paul began tutoring my son as an absolute beginner. He is a superb teacher and my son’s confidence as a guitarist has improved massively. Paul’s lessons are always fun, and he spends time explaining theory as well as teaching songs. His knowledge and skills as a guitarist are exemplary and my son always looks forward to his lessons. I would recommend Paul to anyone.

Paul is an outstanding guitar teacher. I take my lessons online as i'm based overseas. They are very well structured and tailored to musical taste and playing ability. Enjoying lots and can't recommend him highly enough.

Have You Searched For
“A Guitar Teacher Near Me”?

If you have been searching for a guitar teacher specifically for face-to-face guitar lessons, you may well have asked Google to find “a guitar teacher near me”.

When it comes to finding quality guitar tuition, location is often one of the deciding factors in finding a teacher. I teach from my studio close to Norwich, Norfolk. There is however an alternative to face-to-face lessons…

Online Guitar Lessons

During the Covid pandemic, I was forced to teach all my guitar students online. All I seemed to hear at the time was other music teachers commenting on how awful it was to teach online and how they couldn’t wait to get back to ‘normal’.

My approach was different. I embraced online learning and once I gathered all my hardware and software and figured out how to provide the best service I possibly could, I soon found online guitar lessons to be superior in many ways to face-to-face lessons.

When I asked my students if they would like to return to face-to-face lessons, they all decided to stay online. All my hard work during the covid pandemic definitely paid off.

Music For Weddings, Parties And Events

I have played the guitar professionally all my working life and I began playing professional engagements when I was very young. I have played in virtually every live music situation possible (even on the roof of a stately home!).

Even though I do still play occasional shows and other types of gigs, my main focus is playing solo acoustic guitar, in my duo with the fantastic vocal abilities of Claire Barker, also with Claire in the Claire Barker Band and with my jazz trio or quartet.

I enjoy playing both public gigs and the many weddings and private functions for which I am booked. If you are searching for live music and would like to book solo guitar, an acoustic duo, or a jazz band or you would like an amazing night dancing to Norfolk’s finest wedding and party band, check out the various pages on this website and feel free to get in touch to discuss your requirements.
