Lessons for Beginners
Des has developed a tried and tested method to help absolute beginners to quickly gain confidence to read sheet music, train fingers to move efficiently between the frets, and ensuring that each note sounds sharp and sweet.
He also encourages beginners to have fun, and to sing along with friends or on their own while playing the guitar. That is why learners are also encouraged to play the songs they themselves like best.
Here is a short beginner's lesson on how to play an acoustic guitar...
Taking it to the Next Level
If you have been playing the guitar for some time, and would now like to fine tune some of your techniques, Des can assist you to identify opportunities for improvement. He can also work with you to develop your individual style of play.
Record your Lessons
Lessons can be recorded and replayed by the student later to help with practice. Recordings of lessons can be sent by e-mail to the learner and stored on computer.
