Jon Powis: Guitar teacher, musician & guitar repairs, based in my dedicated music studio in Finedon near Wellingborough, Northamptonshire
Guitar Teacher and Musician
I am a professional guitar player and teacher and I can teach you to play guitar from my dedicated studio based in Finedon, Northamptonshire. I have been playing since my early teens and have been in numerous bands performing both original material and cover versions at venues up and down the country for over 20 years.
I have been teaching guitar to people of all ages since 1995 in schools and privately. I cater for all abilities and can teach a large variety of music styles. I also offer comprehensive guitar courses tailored to the individual.
I can teach you to play and sound like the musicians who inspire you.
I can also help you learn the fundamentals of reading music, tab, important scales and music theory.
My guitar lessons are geared to the individual’s needs and aspirations as everyone has different abilities and tastes in music. I am more than happy to teach people what they would like to play, equally I will guide students who are not sure which direction to take. All styles and levels of guitar playing are covered in my tuition, and if desired, preparation for recognised practical/theory examinations.
My approach to guitar lessons is that everyone who wants to learn to play has been inspired by something they have heard and would like to replicate. In my experience the key to keep students motivated from the start is to teach them how to play music they recognise, which in turn allows them to realise they can recreate the sound themselves.
We have an impressive, ever expanding set which includes an eclectic mix of classic songs from the 60’s through to the present day. We don’t just simply replicate your favourite music; we incorporate it into our own style which adds something unique and different to your event.
We have three formats:
- Solo Guitarist: Instrumentals
(classical/Spanish/folk/Rock/pop ) – Jon
- Solo Singer/Rhythm Guitarist
(rock/pop 60’s to modern day ) – Mark
- Duo – two vocals/ two guitars
(rock/pop 60’s to modern day ) – Mark and Jon
I have an HND in Musical Instrument Technology, which I studied at Leeds College of Music, and have been repairing and setting up guitars for over 10 years. The services I offer include restringing, general set ups and structural repairs to guitars. ( not refinishing or paintwork ). Please contact me for quotes.
Jon has taught my son guitar from the age of seven, now only fourteen he is playing grade eight songs. Jon is an outstanding tutor, patient, motivating and extremely knowledgeable – I cannot recommend his services enough. 10 out of 10. Excellent!
