About us


I am an accredited intinerant Guitar Tutor & I offer private ONE ON ONE and GROUP tuition both in GUITAR and UKULELE in the North West of County Durham.

Lessons designed exclusively for the student are usually offered in the comfort of your own home, but in an age where SOCIAL DISTANCING has become a key factor, a lot of that comfort has meant moving ON-LINE recently. The result? The boundaries of North of North West Durham have now opened up Nationally and beyond.

I’ve been playing guitar now for more decades than I care to admit, but I do know, as with anything, when you’ve been doing something for a while you build up a wealth of experience along the way. I’m both happy and proud to be in a position to offer that experience to students who want to pursue FORMAL QUALIFICATIONS, or just simply want to be able to strum for fun for their Family, their friends, or maybe just for themselves.

I am a member of The REGISTRY OF GUITAR TUTORS, (R.G.T.), the biggest guitar educators on the Planet. I’ve been an accredited member of the R.G.T. for more than ten of the twelve years I’ve been teaching people to play the instrument. During this time, every student I have entered for an exam has passed, usually with flying colours.

The R.G.T. also happens to be the Guitar Wing of the World famous LONDON COLLEGE OF MUSIC. So welcome, you’re in pretty good company.

What our students say

"I have attended the GuitarStand at both Buliion hall and Blackhill for several years now and you met with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere where you can learn at your own pace with no pressure on anyone. Tom takeshis time and explains everything in layman's terms and is very patient. So come along and enjoy yourself"
"I have just started lessons with Tome online using Zoom and I am now on week 4. I am very much a beginner with the guitar and the pace of lessons is great for me. A good mixture of practical teaching mixed with the inevitable bit of theory. After habing my huitar for about a year I can now feel that I am making some progress"

"Luke has been receiving guitar lessons from Tom since 2016 and has now developed his acoustic playing all the way to Grade 7 standard. He has always enjoyed his lessons and looks forward to them every week as he is always to learn and develop his playing.
Tom makes the lessons relaxed and fun, but at the same, gives great coaching and tips which inspires Luke to not only learn, but to learn objectively, always looking to recognise and correct any areas he, himself, feelps need to develop or improve. This has helped him grow confidently and impressively as a guitarist over the last four years"
Luke's Father (student)
