The standard length of a guitar lesson is 30 minutes. Pupils under 10 years often start with a 20 minute lesson, extending this to 30 minutes, when age and concentration span allows.
Most pupils start and continue with weekly lessons. More experienced pupils may find that one lesson per fortnight is enough to provide a repertoire of pieces to be practised.

Most lessons are one to one. There is some scope however for 2 or 3 pupils to learn at one time, depending on ability, age and experience, sharing the cost between them.
I teach in a variety of popular styles, such as pop, rock, blues, jazz, folk and classical.
I teach guitar from my home in Southville, Bedminster in Bristol BS3.
Just bring your guitar. If you do not already have a guitar, you may want to use one of my guitars in your first lesson, to see which is most suitable – steel string acoustic, nylon string classical acoustic or electric guitar.

Yes. You will definitely need to have an instrument to practise on between guitar lessons to be able to progress.
