Dave communicated throughout the planning progress to know which songs we liked from his extensive list. He arrived in plenty of time and set up well in advance. Dave was very smartly presented and looked the part. Dave played in the gardens for a drinks reception, he was at the right volume to hear but blended into the atmosphere as well. Dave did a great job and I would use him again with no hesitation. Thanks Dave.

Online Guitar Lessons

I'm David Dove, an experienced teacher, songwriter and performer and I would love to share my passion for Guitar and Music Teaching with anybody who has the desire to learn. I am looking for keen pupils, learners and musicians of all levels who require tuition in Classical, Acoustic, Bass Guitar and Music Theory.

I can offer FaceTime, Skype or Zoom lesson's online in either Guitar/Bass, Music Theory or songwriting. They are like face to face lessons. I can demonstrate techniques, give you tips on your playing in real time and help you learn new songs you've always wanted to play. I provide all lesson materials in the form of PDFs for chord charts, TABs and mp3s for backing tracks and audio examples. These can be sent via email during the lesson and you can download all your guitar lessons, practice plans and any future material from a special section of my website.


I approach lessons in different ways depending on the student. I can teach pop, rock, acoustic, country, classical and folk styles and music theory on Classical, Acoustic or Bass Guitar. Some students prefer to learn in a more modern style so I use music charts to develop their improvisation skills while other students would like to learn new techniques and classical style of playing using notation. I always ensure students choose the route they are most suited to pursuing.

Online lessons are normally either 30m or 45m or max of 1hr long.
