Graduated with **First Class Honours** in BA Popular Music at Middlesex University in London. I have over 8 years experience of teaching. I can teach several music genres including blues, rock, jazz, pop, psychedelic, rockabilly, funk, soul, heavy metal, Brazilian, and more. I also teach slide guitar and music production.

 

I am a very motivated and enthusiastic tutor. I teach people of various ages (from 6 to 70). Don't worry if you have not learned the guitar before. You can count on me to help you learn the guitar properly.

 

I believe that everyone can learn music. A balance between practical and theoretical knowledge must exist to improve the learning process to the maximum level.

 

As your tutor, I will guide you to play the music genre(s) that you are passionate about. I will give you the tools to develop your learning to a degree level. Do you want to learn just for fun? No problem. The point is having fun and learn the guitar for yourself.

 

I look forward to teaching you!

After two years of hard work practicing guitar playing, my 8 year old son was loosing interest and wanted to give up. After meeting with Bruno and having few lessons, his interest in playing guitar and learning new tricks is growing again!
My son is spending one hour weekly with Bruno and he’s really looking forward to every lesson.
I couldn’t recommend Bruno enough! Despite his young age, he is
very
experienced musician, reliable, excellent role model! 
I’m really happy Bruno was recommended to us and hoping we’ll be in touch for some time...

Bruno is a patient and experienced teacher. He’s gently teaching me guitar basics, at my own pace, while making the lessons enjoyable, yet challenging. I highly recommend him.

Bruno is a very nice guy and my son is playing much better with the help of his teacher. Bruno has a well interaction and my son is much more willing to practice what he is thought at the lesson. All in all we’re all very happy and absolutely recommend Bruno to teach littleones as well as adults. Alan

My son (Aged 11) has had two lessons so far and is really enjoying them. He previously knew some chords, but the lessons (over skype) contains much more-mixture of riffs, strumming patterns and exercises. Bruno pays closes attention to my son's playing and provides vital feedback that is already-after two lessons-improving his playing

2 lessons in and Bruno seems fantastic. Great guitarist and teacher has worked well to quickly identify my current skill levels and music tastes and work to build relevant new skills. Lessons have been both fun and challenging and he’s got a very easy going and warm manner. I had another teacher a few years ago but I look forward to lessons with Bruno much more.

My 8 year old has been having lessons with Bruno for a couple of months now - although a total beginner, he has made great progress. 
Bruno is a superb teacher - clearly an incredibly talented musician himself, but with such a calm, friendly personality too - he’s so amicable. Whatever problems my son encounters, Bruno always has a solution to make it work. 
A genuine, committed, excellent teacher, whom I couldn’t recommend more highly.

Starting as a beginner he sets lessons to the right level whilst also keeping them interesting. 

Only been a few months but I feel like I’m progressing well. Despite the situation with lessons now being online they have also worked great!!

Lessons with Bruno are engaging and fun, I always find myself looking forward to them! With a healthy balance of theory and practice, he has helped to develop my playing while deepening my understanding of what makes a song work. In this way Bruno helps to cultivate the musician in his students.
Above all, his lessons are a great opportunity to appreciate, learn and create blues, jazz or rock guitar music. Whether you are looking to pick up the guitar for the first 
time,
or take your playing to the next level, Bruno is your man.
