Welcome to AcousticRGJ, the place to find tuition and resources for guitar and banjo.  

Many years ago, when my wife and I took the decision to change our working lives I started teaching guitar from my house in a small back bedroom. It was an opportunity for e turn my love of acoustic  music into a business. With a dog that barked every time the bell rang and and a steady number of students passing through the house it wasn’t long before I felt the need for alternative accommodation. 

To cut a long story short, after moving home, I now teach from the downstairs of a detached 2 storey garage adjacent to our house. I converted the garage into a teaching studio with sound proofing, underfloor heating and recording facilities.

Like many businesses, Covid19 slowed tuition but was sustained through the offer of lessons via Zoom for students that were happy with an on-line learning option. 

Now that we are slowly easing lockdown, it will be a great day when face to face lessons can resume.


Thank you for visiting my pages, and I hope to hear from you soon.
