Teaching guitar in Bridlington, East Yorks: Acoustic, Electric & Bass

I started teaching professionally in 2005 and have had the privilege of seeing many former students go on to further musical study and success. Old students of mine have studied at the prestigious Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford; several have studied music courses at East Riding College, Yorkshire Coast College and Hull College. Some are now guitar teachers themselves and some are performing in venues ranging from local theatres and pubs to festivals and prestigious venues. Many more are content to be able to play their favourite songs or create their own in their homes.

I tailor lessons to your individual requirements and will go at a pace that you are happy with.

I started playing guitar in 1971 and still perform live music in several bands, playing everything from pubs to festivals and also recording original songs. I have played both lead and bass guitar in various bands, covering just about every style of music.

Lessons are either 30 minutes or 1 hour. I recommend starting with 30 minute lessons then moving on to 1 hour lessons within a few weeks, as once you can play a bit you will find that 30 minutes goes too quickly.

I prefer to teach technical skills and some basic musical theory (from either the Rockschool or RGT books) as well as your favourite songs. However, if you just want to learn to play songs I am happy to do that.

Lessons are taught in my studio. It is comfortable, air-conditioned and has internet access, which allows us to access any song you like immediately and also to use online study aids.

Cracking lessons from Dave. Very knowledgeable, good teacher and nice bloke. Highly recommended!

I can recommend Mr Dave Allott for tuition, he taught me tonnes in about four months and 1 and a half grades of Rockschool!! He also got me out of a lot of bad habits and I improved at least one hundred fold.
