Guitar Lessons in Solihull – Tom Harrison
After studying music for 3 years at university achieving a BMus (Hons) in Popular Music Performance I now have over 5 years of teaching experience. I play in a signed touring band (‘TIGRESS’ – Lab Records, previously ‘The Hype Theory’ – Small Town Records) and so have extensive knowledge of how the music industry works. I have been fortunate enough to tour in countries as far wide as Japan with my band and even play at some of the UK’s biggest festivals including Download, Sonisphere, T In The Park & Vans Warped Tour UK. I am an accomplished songwriter with my own modest home studio. I can help students attain Grades 1 – 8 with Rockschool and I currently have a 100% pass rate. I specialise in Rock, Blues and Acoustic styles but can confidently cover most other styles. I am also DBS/CRB checked.
Lessons are tailored to the students needs, but I will mainly cover:
- Learning different guitar techniques on either an electric or a acoustic guitar (beginner to advanced techniques).
- Learning your favourite songs whether its something from the charts or an old classic. The best way to learn new guitar techniques is through a song, and it keeps learning the guitar fresh!
- I have software that can slow down tracks so you can play along at your own pace & gradually build up your speed.
- Music theory including scales, chords, arpeggios, and how to apply that to your playing
- How to read guitar notation.
- I can record your playing or even record a demo for a song idea that you have.
- Help with music coursework. If you’re studying Music I can help you through any challenging tasks.
- All lessons will include hand outs so you can take what you learn back home with you for practice.
