Additional Information

Whether you want to learn for fun, or you are a serious musician looking to take your playing to the next level, I offer friendly, professional tuition service to help you achieve your guitar playing goals. Unlike other more traditional music tutors, I provide a complete lesson package and support that goes way beyond the lesson time in my studio. This makes a big difference to the results you can expect because most of the progress you make takes place in practice sessions between lessons. This is something that other local music teachers don't offer support with. I have developed a special online student resource to make this practice time as fun and effective as possible when used in combination with my lessons..... I am passionate about helping my students to develop their potential to become successful confident musicians, whether they are starting out or have already been playing for years. I only work with students that I can get great results with… For this reason, I offer a free consultation before taking on any new students, to make sure my teaching service would be suitable for them, in addition to offering a money back guarantee. For more information, full list of lesson tariffs or to book your free consultation session please visit my website or email me. Web: Email:

  • My son has been having lessons with Marcus for six or so years and over that time he has progressed through his Rockschool grades.

    Marcus has the rare quality of being an excellent teacher and excellent musician, always trying new ideas and striving to find the best way of passing on his knowledge, highly recommended.

  • I've been a student of Marcus for more than 5 years. Marcus has great breadth and depth of knowledge and passes this on in a very easy going manner. He employs a variety of teaching methods and is happy to follow either a structured syllabus for grades or a less formal structure. The lessons are fun, I enjoy every session and my guitar playing has improved enormously. What more is there to say?!

  • Marcus is a great, understanding and approachable teacher. I have been self-taught for 4 years and after a couple of months of lessons with him, I have improved faster than ever. Great value for a prestige service

  • Marcus has been teaching my Daughter the guitar for just over a year now.
    She has shown great progress over this time. This is down to his excellent knowledge and teaching abilities. His lessons are interesting, fun and relaxed but at the same time he encourages her to move forward and expand on skills learned. He also promotes the learning of Music as a whole and not just the guitar. He has some great computer programmes to assist. I highly recommend SGA!!!
