Hello, my name is Mark Grunewald. A warm welcome on what I hope will be your first step towards learning – and loving – to play guitar. Or, if you can already play, then a widening of your capabilities.
I have been a professional guitar tutor for over 15 years and before that, I spent 20 years as a touring musician, playing throughout The UK, Europe and the USA. Out of this experience I have developed a teaching philosophy which aims to produce well-rounded and technically proficient pupils, who look forward to their lessons and more importantly, who love to play guitar!
I teach all ages, currently from 8-65, so it is never too late to start learning! My main priority is to develop individual abilities and help pupils fulfil their musical aspirations. For some, this means developing improvisation and composition skills in preparation for a music degree, for others, it is to confidently accompany a sing-along for family and friends. For those who wish to follow an exam syllabus, I teach both RGT (acoustic) and Rock School (electric) Grades 1-8.
Whether you crave to be the next rock god, or question any physical or learning disabilities that you feel might hold you back, my aim is to have you love to play your guitar!
