Guitar Lessons In Bromley

Guitar Lessons with an experienced teacher in Bromley

Do you live in the Bromley area? Have you ever wanted to play the guitar? Look no further.

My purpose built, sound-proofed studio in Bromley allows me to tailor bespoke guitar lessons to students of all ages, levels and experience.

Having been a teacher for over 8 years, I know how valuable it is to structure guitar lessons for pupils to learn at their own pace, in a friendly environment that suits their individual needs.

@THE STUDIO

Lessons have been going well at the studio and my new students are progressing well after only a few lessons. I am happy to say all my students passed their Trinity Music Exams with top marks so well done to each and every one of you. Not all students decide to take the music grade route and I have plenty of students who have no desire to and are just enjoying playing songs and learning a new skill. If you think you would be interested feel free to get in touch at keirguitar@hotmail.com for more info. Here is my wonderful student Lynette working the songs for her church and she is doing brilliantly.

I have been very busy playing guitar for the amazing Floyd tribute band What The Floyd this month. We had several gigs and my first was quite interesting as 2 songs in the fire alarm went off and the whole building had to be evacuated but that aside it was a great name and the songs are a guitarists dream to play. You can check out the website for gigs which include full laser show as well as all the great music from Dark Side, Pulse and Wish you Were Here.

I have also been hitting the festivals with Emily Capell that saw us at Ocean Fest in Devon  supporting Jess Glynn.

I have also been hitting the festivals with my band Soul Grenades and we supported Graig Charles at The Great Estate festival as well as playing the Graig Charles funk and Soul night at Brixton.

I have also been playing with originals band PLANET 3 and we have been warming up doing some acoustic gigs showcasing the new EP. Check out the website for more info

Things at the studio have been very busy as I have been prepping all my students for there Trinity Music Exams and I am pleases to say that all my students passed with flying colours. It’s all ways a great feeling knowing that I have helped students on their journey with music and i wanted to congratulate them all on working so hard towards it. I have had several new students start with styles ranging from beginners to a student looking to get into country-style guitar playing so if you know of anyone interested in lessons do tell them to get in touch. I also offer Home Lessons which is easier for certain students who cannot travel or prefer the comfort of their own home. Lessons can be weekly or fortnightly and are either 30 mins or 60 mins depending on what areas want to be worked on.

It has been a great month that saw me kick things off on tour with Emily Capell supporting British band Texas. We played to some massive crowds in Dubai, Cape town and Joberg and the whole of South Africa was breath-taking. I want to say special thanks to all the guys who helped make it happen as well as the band consisting of Matt Cowley on drums and Steven Oates on bass. Here are some pics of the gigs including the Dubai tennis stadium, Kirstenbosch botanical gardens and Joberg

 

I have also been busy with THE RUDBE GOLDBERG MACHINE where we played this years Progfest with some amazing bands and a great reception. The album is being worked on so I will keep you updated as to when that comes out.

I have also been gigging with my band SOUL GRENADES where we played a headline set at London’s biggest funk and soul night THE SOUL TRAIN at the Bussey building in Peckham. The night was too much fun to remember as you can see from these pics

This summer I also played guitar on Mark Kingswood incredible album of contemporary swing music and here you can see his latest video for his first single Strong. Go and check him out he is awesome

Here is me putting the guitars down earlier in the year for this song

 

Planet 3 is another band I play in and we had our first gig at the Tunbridge Wells Forum last month. The gig was so much fun and we smashed it and are looking forward to going in the studio later this year to record the first EP.

So that’s kept me pretty busy this month. I hope you all have lovely Christmas and New Year and I look forward to more exiting projects and student’s in 2018.

@ The Studio

The studio is really busy which is great news though is a little quite due to people booking their summer holidays. I have had several new students start this month and 2 of those new starters are students that I used to teach at Primary School for the Bromley Youth Music Trust.  As a result of them moving school they obviously stopped their music lessons but now they are settled in to secondary school they have made contact and it was great seeing them again. As students build up a rapport with me they often wish to continue lessons after school so its great to see them returning.

I have been teaching everything from blues and jazz to rock and pop as always and here is one of my students Robbie whom I have been teaching for a couple of years and i believe we were working on some Rolling Stones songs here. Robbie went from never playing guitar to where he is out playing jam and blues nights all around Robbie and he is the perfect example of coming to music a little later in life and finding something that he now thoroughly enjoys, Great work Robbie

@The Studio

The studio has been as busy as ever which is great news. There have been lots of new students starting which has seen me teaching everything from Ozzy Osbournes Crazy Train through to 3 blind mice with some of my younger students. I have also been helping prep students for their TRINITY MUSIC EXAMS which is exiting. I have some spaces available on my register so do get in touch if you are interested in lessons. My teaching studio is based in Bromley at ASCAPE STUDIOS and has everything you need to enjoy your lessons. We have tea and coffee as well as a waiting area for parents and wifi.

I received an email from a parent via NetMums asking if there 6-year-old could learn guitar. 6 is quite young for the guitar as there is a certain amount of strength needed in the left and right hand to push metal string onto the fretboard so i suggested maybe the ukulele would be a better choice and now i am happy to say that this student is now learning simple melodies on it and loves it!.

This month has seen my band SOUL GRENADES gig in and around London as well as playing the brilliant ELDERFLOWER  FEILD FESTIVAL   The staff and crowd were very welcoming and we had a fantastic time playing there so looking forward to playing there again next year.
