Ian Marriss

Guitar Tutor

About Me

I am an experienced musician who began playing the guitar as a teenager. I have been playing in bands and as a solo performer for thirty years and teaching guitar professionally for over ten years.

My Unique Approach

Lessons are 45 minutes long and on a one-to-one basis. They can be as formal or informal as you wish. All teaching aids such as chord sheets and tabs will be constructed and provided by me. I do not have a set course. The content of the lessons will be determined by you. You will learn your own choice of songs and all lessons will progress at a pace with which you feel comfortable.

Sessions can be arranged at a time to suit you. They can be during the day or in the evening. They can be held at your own home or at my music room. I am based in Emmer Green but can arrange lessons anywhere in the Reading area, Henley or South Oxfordshire.

The lessons are mostly weekly or fortnightly, but can be as frequent as you wish in order to fit in with your lifestyle.

I am now able to provide one to one guitar sessions in person at my home. Video lessons are still available if you prefer. For more information, please visit my Facebook page via the link
