Welcome to Croydon Guitar Lessons! My name's Al Wreaves and I'm a full time guitar teacher and performing musician - I teach from my house which is just a 10 minute walk from East Croydon train station. After completing a performance Diploma at The Academy of Contemporary Music and a BA Hons Music Degree at The University of Southampton, I've taught hundreds of students of all ages and abilities both privately and in schools. I also have an up to date enhanced DBS check certificate.
My aim is simple - I want to help you get better at playing the guitar! By booking a free 1 hour consultation lesson, I'll be able to analyse where you're at with your playing and we can discuss what you'd like to achieve. I'll then explain exactly what you need to do in order to achieve these goals through a structured, progressive practice routine tailored to your specific musical interests.
If you're a complete beginner and have no idea where to start, that's ok! I'll guide you step by step through the basics and have you playing real music in no time :-). I've taught hundreds of students who had never even touched a guitar before - with a bit of hard work and a little patience, you'll be surprised how quickly you pick things up.
Feel free to drop me a message via the chat box - let me know a little bit about yourself and any musical experience you may or may not have, then we can book in your first free lesson!
"After looking around for lessons I came across this site. I had been with another teacher that was not the right fit for me. I count myself very lucky to have found a teacher that is patient, very professional and friendly, thinks about what the student wants, no ego involved here. Lessons are so much fun, I enjoy the learning process and can't wait for the next lesson. I come away wanting to work really hard towards my goal, everything that I have expected from the lessons I have found, it's important to have a teacher that you trust and Inspires you. Things are explained in a clear and precise way, communication between teacher and student is excellent, I don't feel afraid to ask questions, because of that my confidence is growing. Being able to explain something that is a little confusing in a simple way is a delight to see and be part of. I am enjoying the learning process and growth on the guitar. I only have one regret, I wish I had found Al earlier, the knowledge and skill set I would have now, you live and learn. So I recommend this teacher very highly If you're willing to put the work in you will see your playing change for the better. The guitar is fun!"
