« I had guitar lessons regularly with Barney for 2 or 3 years before I went to university, at which point he started teaching my brother bass guitar. I enjoyed these so much I took up lessons again after university! All in all he taught my family for a good 6 or so years. Barney's teaching made me a better musician, he taught me different techniques through learning songs that I liked in various styles and he regularly arranged opportunities to gain experience performing. All of this led to some of the best nights I've had performing in various bands at university, and also gave me the confidence to teach a little bit of guitar myself. I would highly recommend Barney as a guitar teacher. He has a wealth of musical knowledge that he gets across in an understandable and concise way, and he is flexible enough that I could have an idea for something I wanted to learn on the way to a lesson and he'd be able to teach it that day. It's of him that the instrument has become such a big part of my life, and I'm always greatful for his excellent tuition. »

Guitar, Bass, Violin, Mandolin & Theory lessons from pro musician with 18 years teaching experience. Lessons given online or in Whitley Bay/North Shields

Methodology

Professional musician with over 18 years experience helping people to get what they want out of playing a musical instrument. I've taught people from 7 to 75, beginners to pros, from sheet music and by ear - everyone is welcome!

Background

After graduating from the University of Sheffield with an honours degree in Music I began teaching in various primary and secondary schools in my local area, as well as building up a roster of private students whom I taught in their own homes.

For 13 years from 2004 I ran a private music school called Greenway Music - (concealed information) - which provided instrument and theory lessons for people aged between 7 and 75 years old. I headed a team of up to 9 teachers and we regularly gave showcase concerts in which students and teachers performed alongside each other in groups ranging from duets up to a 15 piece jazz/rock ensemble.

During that time I continued teaching in schools, including 7 years at Hartford High School in Cheshire. I was also a co-founder of the Alsager Music Festival - (concealed information)

I now compose music for film, tv and media, and give online music lessons from my studio in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK. I will also consider teaching students in their own homes (within the Tynemouth/North Shields/Whitley Bay area).

I regularly play on my own recordings and do occasional session work for other composers/producers. My music has been used in programmes that have been broadcast internationally, and I have worked with clients including Sony, Greenpeace and Grey Goose Vodka.

I've known Barney for years, so I obviously thought of him immediately when my daughter wanted music lessons. She tried out a number of different instruments but eventually went for the piano. Barney was brilliant with, Grace, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Barney's ace, started playing guitar with Barn and have gone on to loving the instrument and play gigs most weekends. He's great teacher and musician. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to play music.
