Located in Brunswick
Improve your playing and overcome your challenges with private lessons from a studio in Brunswick. Develop a firm grasp and solid understanding of lead guitar, improvising, technique, theory, modes and scales, rhythm, song writing, practice and anything else you’d like to work on.
The most common problems my students face when they first come to me are feeling overwhelmed and confused by online information, struggling with sloppy playing and messy technique, struggling with timing, struggling with bends, feeling stuck in a rut, not being able to improvise very well, playing the same old things again and again, feeling like they’ve hit a speed barrier, feeling like they should be better for the time they’ve been playing, having a limited knowledge of scales and theory, feeling intimidated by theory and not knowing where to start and not having a structured approach to learning, improving and practicing. If you’re experiencing any of the same problems I’m confident I can help you.
If you’re interested in private lessons then you’re eligible for a FREE trial. This trial will give you an idea of how lessons work so you can decide whether you’d like to go ahead with them or not, risk free. It will also give me a chance to hear you play, see you play and get a better idea of what we need to work on in order for you to become the guitarist you want to be.
Are you ready to book?
Complete the application form below
I only take on a certain amount of private students, fill out the application form below and I’ll be in touch to schedule a FREE trial if I feel I can really help you with what you want to achieve.
What do our students say?
“Great guitar teacher! I have improved so much since I have taken lessons with Dean for the past 2 years. Highly recommend anyone interested in taking their guitar skills to the next level to contact Dean.”
I'm over 40, am I too old to learn or improve?
No. You’re never too old to learn new things on the guitar or improve your existing ability, I don’t know why people keep asking me this. For some strange reason, a lot of people believe learning and improving is only something you can do when you’re younger and once you hit a certain age, you’re not aloud to learn anything new or improve on anything – you’ve just got to work with what you’ve got. It’s absurd. Learning doesn’t stop, even the best musicians in the world are still learning and improving and will continue to do so well into their old age.
How do private lessons work?
After you send through your form for a FREE trial lesson, I’ll give you a call to chat about your playing and what you want to achieve. Next we’ll work out a time and day for your trial. If after the trial you decide you’d like to start lessons, we’ll work out a day and time for your ongoing lessons. All lessons are administered in term blocks that are four weeks long, this goes for Zoom lessons as well. You’ll pay for your lessons by the term. You’ll be able to choose whether you’d like a lesson every week or every second week, as well as whether you’d like your lesson to go for half an hour, 45 minutes, or an hour. Contact me for lesson prices.
Do you teach beginners?
I do teach beginners but not through private lessons. I have a course I run exclusively for adult beginners called the Beginner Electric Guitar Course. This course is designed to give you the best information possible to get you started playing the electric guitar. I prefer to reserve my private lessons for intermediate and advanced players.
I'm not interested in electric guitar or rock, metal and blues styles - can I still study with you?
I mean, you could. I’d just prefer not to take you on as a student. If you’re not interested in the expertise I offer than you’re better off going somewhere else.
