About Red House

I started Red House in the year 2000 with just one pupil. There are now  students studying guitar, ukulele, and bass, showing the truth of the old adage that it is never too late to learn.

 

In the studio are guitars, bass, ukulele as well as amps and other facilities. The setting is domestic rather than industrial, so I hope there is little to daunt the beginner.

 

My qualifications for the task are 40 years of playing in semi-professional bands, starting when I was still at school, and including some local theatre work. I have Rockschool Grade 8 (Distinction) in guitar and Grade 8 (Merit) in bass as well. I am pleased to say that I have guided many others through the grade system.

 

Each year, Red House hosts a "show", where students can demonstrate their talent to family and friends, if they so wish. I encourage them to do so, because as a performer myself, I think it is good for them to learn to play in front of other people, and eventually have bands of their own.

 

I welcome enquiries regarding any vacancies and my fees, which are payable in blocks or individually, in cash, cheque, BACS or Paypal.
