If you're still struggling with lack of progress on guitar, over-thinking, and not knowing how or what to practice…

Listen up.

Because I want to show you how you can finally NOT feel those things any more and get your guitar playing on track. 

My focus is always on training my guitar students with everything they need to play the way they want...

From bedroom players, casual hobbyists, music-school students right through to professional musicians, I've had the honour and privilege to be a part of their musical journeys too.

I wanna help YOU overcome any issues, build effective practice habits, learn the right things in the right order whilst having fun playing guitar!

Since 2011,  I have been helping:

🤟Anxious bedroom guitarists become strong, “rockstar confident" individuals …

🤟Stressed out, frustrated guitar players become “Zen” calm...

🤟People practice more efficiently than ever and watching them grow effortlessly…

🤟Build self-esteem and grow confidence…

🤟Make guitar practice become fun and something you actually want to do…


"Jimmy is a fantastic guitar teacher and all round top bloke.

I first took lessons with him after having around a 10 year break … I developed plenty of bad habits, which Jimmy quickly identified and helped me fix. This really kickstarted my progress on the instrument again and allowed me to make great progress towards my goals.

Jimmy’s extensive experience as a gigging and recording guitar player give him an excellent background to offer general advice in addition to musical tuition.

I would not hesitate to recommend him to guitar players of all ages and experiences who want to improve and enjoy the instrument to the fullest."

Alex K. Salisbury, UK (Fave bands, KSE, Gojira, Periphery)


"Tried a few local teachers but never really clicked with any of them before someone recommended Jimmy to me. I got on with Jimmy straight away, He's patient helpful and his positive attitude rubs off on students and their playing.

I would not hesitate to recommend Jimmys teaching to anyone wanting to start playing or improve."

Paul.  Southampton, UK (Fave bands: Iron Maiden, Metallica)


"I went to Jimmy as a complete novice.

I have progressed loads in the few months I have had Jimmy as a teacher.

Alongside teaching me how to play, Jimmy has helped boost my confidence to play in front of others and has a wealth of knowledge and also resources that he is happy to share."

Alex P. Worcester. UK (Rock, Punk, Metal guitarist)

 


All of these, and much more have and do happen when a guitar student has an understanding that rocks their world (in a good way!) shared with them…

This understanding is achieved by learning the most important guitar lesson of all time…

HOW TO PRACTICE!!!

*Now that might sound a bit too easy or overly simplistic. But that’s the beauty of it!*

By simply having guided guitar practice sessions and lessons with me you’ll make more progress each month than you have on your own for ages!

Before you think you have to have to spend hours a day practicing mindless exercises, before you buy another guitar course or book, or before you search YouTube for the next video to help you (and hopefully not get too distracted from actually practicing), why not find out more about this new, exciting approach to learning metal guitar that I can show you that’s been an absolute game changer in helping people get “unstuck" and totally transform the way you think about practicing and your guitar playing right now...


"I started taking lessons with Jimmy as I wanted to improve my playing generally and get tighter.
I think I have improved a lot. My timing has got much better and my soloing and riffs have come on a long way.

A big thing for me is that my confidence has improved. Before I started taking lessons, I used to dread practicing as it didnt sound good. I thought about giving up..

Now, I’m  glad I didn’t!

Sam Dando, UK (Fave bands: Slipknot, Korn)

 


 

For me, two of the key ingredients Jimmy provides are Skills Coaching and Mentoring. The latter of these is often overlooked and undervalued, but, in terms of motivation it is indispensable.

Having face to face time with an expert, who takes a personal interest in your progress and achievement, is just not something you can’t  get from Youtube "
