Guitar Tuition Tailored to You...

Hi, thanks for visiting my website! If you're here looking to improve your skills as a guitar player with a friendly and experienced tutor, then you've come to the right place! As well as information about my private lessons you will also find a wealth of free resources to help you with your guitar playing so I hope you find something here that helps you whether you take private lessons with me or not!

I'm pleased to be able to offer private guitar tuition from my purpose built studio in Huncote, South Leicestershire, as well as online lessons through Skype/FaceTime/Zoom. Being able to provide high quality tuition no matter where you are in the world has been especially beneficial during the current Coronavirus pandemic. I'm grateful to have continued teaching throughout these strange times, with many students taking advantage of the online option! 

A big part of my teaching philosophy is to make the process of learning as enjoyable as possible. After all, if it's not fun, why bother?! By using music that inspires you, we will work on the fundamentals of good guitar technique as well as musicianship skills such as developing a good sense of rhythm, this will give you the foundations and tools to progress quickly with your playing! Provided you can commit some time to practice, I'm  confident that I can help you achieve your goals!

What My Students Say...

"I can't recommend Greg more highly as a teacher, all round musician and top bloke.... having had a few teachers in the past I really needed someone that was going to help me take my playing to the next stage...Greg has not only managed to improve my overall ability to play the instrument but also understand some basic theory that enables me to unlock the techniques and understanding that I needed in order to achieve my goals...always listening and embracing the music that you want to learn whilst finding exercises and projects that will test your metal and develop your playing and understanding"

A Bit About ME...

Hi, my name is Greg Shute, I'm a self employed guitarist and tutor based in Huncote, Leicestershire, UK.


I've been lucky enough to earn a living from playing and teaching the guitar for over 15 years now and I'm hugely passionate about what I do. 


Whether you're a complete beginner looking to get started on guitar, or you have been playing for a while and want to take your playing to the next level, I can tailor a lesson plan around your goals and help you enjoy the process of achieving them! 


I started teaching guitar in around 2004 and since then have helped hundreds of students of different ages and abilities to improve their guitar playing skills and become better musicians. Helping others to experience the joy of learning to play the guitar is something I find thoroughly rewarding. I love to see the confidence grow in my students as they improve! 


Whilst building my own private teaching business I was also the resident teacher at two Leicestershire schools for well over 10 years, helping many students towards their GCSE and A Level exams. Although I no longer teach at the schools myself I'm proud to continue to provide high quality teachers and oversee the lessons at Bosworth Academy in Desford, Leicestershire, an Ofsted Outstanding school.  

I am also a member of the Registry of Guitar Tutors (RGT) and can provide tuition towards formal graded exams from Preliminary through to Diploma level. Grades 6 and above also offer UCAS points towards University enrolment. Get in touch for more details!
