This tried and tested method has proven to keep the lessons consistently engaging and productive. This style of teaching has a more contemporary and modern approach to music. This can include working through contemporary music grade books like "Rockschool" as well as building a good foundation for ear training, which Conor believes to be fundamental for any musician.

He focuses on many aspects of Guitar music in his teaching, including Music Theory (such as help with triads, chord progressions, chord extensions and intervals), help with various scales, arpeggios, the CAGED system, fret patterns, solos and soloing over guitar chords and helping students progress towards their grades. He also teaches composition and Musical production (including Logic) and can help students with forms of digital music such as analysing songs, modulations, arranging with multiple instruments and creating harmony.

Conor is dedicated to helping students with long-term goals - some of this includes working towards grades, being a confident song-writer, improving your understanding of Music Theory, working out songs by ear, navigating how to play with other musicians and preparation for gigs. If visiting him for lessons at his home, you will just need a guitar (either electric or acoustic) and yourself! He also offers Online lessons.

With over 16 years experience playing and performing guitar as a working musician, Conor has honed his skills and loves every moment of teaching others the magic that music has to offer. He currently teaches students from the ages of 7 - 60, so all are welcome!

Testimonials

Danette - "Conor is a brilliant teacher who has inspired my son to absolutely love playing the guitar. His approach is purely pupil focussed - always making lessons fun and catering to our son’s musical tastes. This has inspired my son to practise and be on his way to mastering various pieces and also preparing for a contemporary guitar exam, all in the space of a few months (but at a very manageable and non pressured pace)! He’s an encouraging and friendly teacher and I would highly recommend him."

Andrew - "Conor is an outstanding teacher. My daughters have learned more in the last few weeks with him than from the other two teachers of the last two years! Isabella & Rhiannon praise his approach, technique and enthusiasm. They are now studying for their first exam."
