    The virtual one to one sessions have really helped me home in on the music theory and fretboard awareness and have been a nice distraction throughout the pandemic.…
  • Guitarstand@Bullion & Guitarstand@Blackhill
    I walked into my first Guitar Stand session at Bullion Hall a complete beginner, keen to give it a go, but not knowing anything at all about the guitar. Two years later, I am playing songs, barre-chords, Scales and pentatonics. Tom offers a flexible learning approach, allowing you to work at your own pace.

  • Guitarstand@Blackhill
    I’ve been attending Tom’s guitarstand at Consett for a short while now. I was going to the Sage in Gateshead learning finger picking and strumming. I was looking for something different and stumbled across Tom’s page. I was getting a bit frustrated doing only part of song and having to learn the rest at home. Why not give the guitarstand a go. So that’s how I started, and was instantly hooked. The people who attend are at different levels so there’s always someone to get advice from. The people …
