Al Wreaves Guitar Lessons offers tailored one-on-one instruction for all ages and skill levels, allowing each student to reach their own goals and maximise their learning. Based on the student's interests, a combination of the following areas will result in the most progress in their guitar playing:

1001 songs.jpeg


Learning real music from your favourite artists & guitarists - songs, guitar solos, riffs, melodies, grade pieces... At least 80% of your practice time should be spent learning and building a repertoire of music you can play from memory.

Technique, chords & scales, fretboard knowledge, ear training, music theory, reading music...Although not compulsory, having a solid foundation in some of these fundamental areas will greatly improve your guitar playing and all round musicianship.



Writing your own music (songs, riffs, solos, chord progressions), improvising, exploring guitar effects & sounds (amps, pedals, plugins etc). Taking what you've already learnt and being creative with it is one of the best ways to develop as a musician and break outside the box.

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!
