About Guitar Lessons Bolton

Welcome to Guitar Lessons Bolton! My name is Jon and I am a professional guitarist and guitar teacher based here in Bolton. I have many years teaching experience, providing guitar tuition to students at the Royal Northern College of Music, Bolton School, Lancaster Community Music Centre as well as privately.

I have studied at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester under the internationally acclaimed guitarist Craig Ogden, gaining a Bachelor of Music degree and a Postgraduate Diploma in Performance with distinction.

Over the years my students have achieved a high standard of performing, reaching their goals whilst at the same time growing into accomplished and creative musicians. I have helped many students successfully take graded examinations through ABRSM, Trinity and Rockschool. Thought this is certainly not compulsory, with many of my students simply learning for their own enjoyment.

My approach to teaching is to help my students reach their full potential whilst ensuring that they enjoy each of the lessons and overall learning experience. As no two pupils are the same, I will tailor the lessons based on the individual’s ability and plan a practice routine which will tackle various technical and musical aspects of their playing.

I will teach students the basic mechanics including posture, plucking/picking, as well as help my pupils to read basic music notation, tablature and chord symbols. With intermediate and more advanced players, I will help these students to focus on building their songs list and repertoire as well as focus on tone production/phrasing and helping them with all the performance/presentation aspects of their guitar playing.

Alongside my guitar teaching, I am also an experienced performer, with The Guardian kindly reviewing my playing as "impressively expert". I have appeared live on BBC Radio 3 and was selected as one of their ‘BBC Classical Introducing Artists’, My latest album ‘Edges of Thought’ was named by ‘Classical Guitar Magazine’ as one of the Top 10 best classical guitar recordings of 2017.

I would be delighted to help you to learn to play the guitar or rapidly develop your playing ability. To book your first lesson or to simply find out more about my guitar lessons don't hesitate to get in touch by emailing info@guitarlessonsbolton.com.
