Hi and welcome to my guitar tuition website!
I’m Tim Slater and I’m based in Fordham, Cambridgeshire UK. I’ve been playing guitar for 30 years… but believe me, I know how frustrating it can be when you want to play the music that you hear in your head but cannot translate it onto the fretboard. Even having played for many years, my guitar playing had suffered from several ‘gaps’ that were due to not receiving the correct tuition and grounding in music theory when I first started playing guitar.
The knowledge gaps didn’t prevent me from joining some really good bands and being able to play guitar very well but deep down I also knew that I wasn’t reaching my full potential.
Having gone back and studied I know that I can help seasoned players who may feel that they are ‘stuck in a rut’ due to a few small but important gaps in their theory and technique whist also being able to give good advice and support to beginners. I can help you reach your potential and enjoy your guitar journey!
I have a Grade 8 in Electric Guitar and Grade 5 in music theory from the Registry of Guitar Tutors – www.rgt.org
- and I am able to teach rock, blues, jazz, country & pop on acoustic and electric guitar. I also teach 5-string banjo & bass guitar.
My guitar journey is still an ongoing process; we never stop learning!
I can teach individuals or groups and I am able to travel to your home within a 15-mile radius of Fordham Cambs, including Cambridge, Newmarket and Ely. I have up to date CRB/DBS certification and can supply reference on request.
