Welcome to the Teaching page of Graham Corbould offering expert Guitar and Ukulele tuition.
Graham is a specialist guitar tutor of some 18 years experience with a busy teaching practice in Bexleyheath as well as working in a number of the Bexley Schools. In 2009 Graham was the Guitar Tutor of the year for the Registry of Guitar Tutors (RGT).
Guitar and Ukulele lessons are open to all ages, all abilities and in all styles, albeit acoustic, electric, rock, bass. Graham is happy to work with beginners or players with some experience who want to improve or add new skills.
The approach taken is to give you the building blocks to develop as a player rather than just learn songs or pieces by rote.
Graham also offers, but does not mandate, the London College of Music/RGT grading schemes and exams on Guitar, Ukulele and Music Theory.
So if you want to play for fun or to study please email here for further details or to book a trial lesson.
