Lessons

Not only is the guitar immense fun and very versatile it is also an affordable, accessible and extremely portable instrument.  These are incredible qualities to take advantage of.  There are a vast number of role models, styles of playing and ways to approach playing the guitar.  There is definitely something for everybody.

 I am an experienced lead guitarist, songwriter and teacher.  I offer high quality tuition with a professional attitude, enthusiasm and enhanced patience to people of all ages and abilities.  Beginner to advanced.  

My teaching style is based on the individual student.  Each person has their own motivation as to why they want to learn to play guitar and also their own style of learning.  I aim to communicate the lessons in a way that makes sense and is relevant

I initially find out where the student is coming from in terms of their interests, goals and motivations and build on that. I find songs they are interested in learning relative to their current ability and then weave in theory and technique.   

I like to make sure the student is getting what they are interested in and that they feel encouraged.  My aim is to focus on keeping the learning enjoyable and to ensure that progress is being made.  I teach grades when requested.

Lessons available are:

Guitar – ( Electric  |  Acoustic  |  Lead  |  Rhythm ) Rock, Pop, Blues (slide), Folk, Funk..

Songwriting

Music Theory

Grades – 100% Pass Rate

Lessons are based in Liverpool, UK.

    Thanks.

    • Hi Aleyoia,
      Are you based in Liverpool? If you are interested in lessons and based in Liverpool it is just a case of arranging a day and time for a lesson.
      What style guitar are you looking to play?
      Cheers
      Jo

    Hi Jo,

    I’d like to enquire about the possibility of starting up weekly lessons. I started playing guitar in my teens, more than ten years ago now, and just messed around with tablature until I got lessons for about six months aged 17.

    For the past ten years I’ve come back to the guitar intermittently but would really like to get back into it and progress. My tuition all those years ago got as far as scales and the very early stages of learning to play lead, though this is a distant memory now.

    When I was taught back then it was very much ‘monkey see monkey do’. This time I really want to learn more constructively so that I can learn to play by ear and by instinct rather than just learning ‘off by heart’.

    I work 9-6 in the city centre and would like to arrange a regular day if possible.

    Thanks,

    Daniel

    • Hi Daniel,

      Thanks for your enquiry. I received your message via email and responded to you there. Hopefully you have received it OK!

      Cheers

    Hi Jo,

    I am an advanced guitar player (self taught) and I am interested in achieving grades.
    How long does it takes? How much do you charge per lesson?

    Thank you🙂

    • Hi Tommy,

      Cheers for getting in touch. Regards Grades it would depend on how much you already knew and how much time you were willing to put into the work. It’s very subjective. The grades require knowledge of scales, keys, understanding chord progressions etc If your theory knowledge is as advanced as your practical playing then it could progress fairly quickly but until I know what your abilities are I couldn’t give you a time frame. The best thing to do would be to arrange a lesson. Also, what are your reasons for wanting to achieve grades? Are you a regular performing guitarist?

      If you’d like any more information or would like to talk about it please feel free to ask!

      I look forward to hearing from you.
      Jo

    Hi Jo

    I am interested in starting guitar lessons, I am not a complete beginner and have been playing for 3 years so I’m kind of intermediate but I was curious do you offer fingerstyle guitar lessons ?

    Jonathan

    • Hi Jonathan,

      Thanks for the message. I do Folk & Blues fingerstyle. Are there particular artists or styles you are looking into?

      Cheers
      Jo

  6. Dominique

    Hi Jo,

    I Am Interested in starting guitar lessons with you as a beginner. How can I arrange this? Also will I be provided with a guitar during lessons?

    Thanks

    Dominique

    • Hi Dominique,
      Thanks for your message,
      We can arrange it via email or phone, whichever is most convenient. If you contact either: jo@jobywaterguitartuition.com or 07810 267574. If you would like to leave your number or email it to me I would be happy to get in touch with you.
      Regards a guitar- you would need to supply your own. Practising in between lessons is a valuable part of learning / processing what you learn in the lesson so I ask all my students to have their own/have access to a guitar.
      Many thanks
      Jo

    Hi, Jo. I dunno if you’ll remember me, bit I’ve worked with you a few times at the Get Real workshop in LIPA. My vocal coach, Carrie, told me that you offer guitar lessons. I’m looking to take it up to learn some basic skills to aid with my songwriting. Where do your lessons take place and what days/times are you available? I’m only looking for 30 minute lessons if thats okay with you.

    • Hi Mark,
      Cheers for your message. I’ve sent details to your email. Any more questions feel free to ask!
      Jo
