top quality guitar tuition, from the comfort of your own home!
All you need is a computer or phone with a camera and a WIFI connection. It's really simple !
I can understand that people who haven't tried Skype guitar lessons before might be sceptical of how effective the method could be, or worry that it may be difficult from a technical point of view. This is precisely why I offer a free 30 min trial lesson to prove to everyone just how brilliant and easy they are! During this free consultation we get a chance to meet each-other (maybe with a cup of tea in hand!) and talk about what you'd like to learn. I'll then show you a few things about your given subject and you'll see just how effective and convenient Skype lessons are.
Many of my students have converted from standard lessons over to Skype because it's such an easy way for them to have regular lessons. I'm happy to say that I now teach people from all over the world!
The quality of tuition is exactly the same as if someone were here with me in person. We can see and hear each other perfectly. Regarding any hand-out's or reference materials; I create an online folder for each student to which I upload any lesson materials. This could be notation, backing tracks, videos, diagrams, recorded music or anything else. Once I've uploaded the files, they are instantly, and permanently available to you to view, or download as you see fit.
To re-cap then: It's cheaper, there's no travel time or traffic jams to deal with, there are no pieces of paper to lose, and the quality of tuition is exactly the same. Personally I think Skype is fast becoming THE way to learn guitar.
GIVE IT A TRY..... IT'S FREE !
Reviews from pupils
"learning over Skype is working really well for me as I work such long hours, often travelling abroad for work, so it means I can still have a real person (who really, REALLY knows his onions) teach me wherever I am!" - Mike
"I was a little sceptical of having guitar lessons over Skype as I think I preferred the idea of being with someone face to face, but after my trial lesson I was totally convinced. I learned just as much (if not more) with Allan over Skype as I did with my previous guitar tutor. I also love the fact that i don't have to leave the house, especially in winter! Highly recomended" - Rebecca
"Im really enjoying my Skype lessons with Allan, it's so easy and convenient for me as I don't have to leave my house or the children, so it takes up far less time than visiting a local teacher. The lessons are fun and interesting and Allan sends me notes / tabs on anything were going to cover in the lesson so i have it all to hand while we're online. Being a little bit of a techno-phobe I was also pleased with how simple it was to use Skype, I just load it up on my iPad and press call, so easy! The quality of the picture and sound is better than I was expecting too, I can see Allan's fingers on the fretboard clearly and hear everything perfectly, I couldn't be happier with my lessons" - David
"I've been learning guitar with Allan for about 3 years now, and 6 months ago I had to move abroad, so I was worried I'd have to find a new teacher (which I really didn't want to do!) I can honestly say that the Skype lessons have been fantastic and actually, alot easier for me. We have a great time talking about music and playing during the lessons and I feel exactly the same way as when I visited Allan in person. I can't recommend him highly enough" - Oliver
