Tutoring Approach

The lessons are totally tailored to the needs and interests of the individual. Whilst learning the instrument we also cover the rudiments of music theory in order to get a deeper understanding of how music works. That is then applied to learning songs etc to put everything into context. Most importantly lessons with Gavin are fun!
