Guitar Lessons in Stockport

With Andy Hammond


Who Am I?

I have been teaching 1-2-1 guitar lessons in Stockport for 8 years and usually have 20+ students per week, as well as teaching regularly at schools and workshops. I have been playing guitar for 18 years, hold a degree in music and sound engineering and run a recording studio in Manchester.

Where Do I Teach?

I teach from my home in Cheadle Heath (One minutes drive from M60 Junction 1) where I have a dedicated music room and all the necessary facilities to provide great lessons. My students travel from Didsbury, Cheadle, Bramhall, Sale, Heaton Chapel, Heaton Moor and other surrounding areas.

How Do I Teach?

I have enough teaching knowledge and experience to vary my approach depending on the individual student. I try to teach via the songs and music genres each student enjoys. That means each of my students benefit from tailor made lesson plans that are designed to be as fun and engaging as possible.

Who Are My Lessons For?

Beginner to Advanced

About 50% of my guitar students are absolute beginners. Most of the other half have played guitar for a few years and have reached a point where lessons are necessary to keep improving. I have a small number of students who are already very competent musicians. Their lessons are usually focussed on very specific content.


Old or Young

My youngest student ever was four (she’s eight now and still playing!). I teach plenty of teenagers – often helping them to develop their chops specifically to start up a band. I also have several students who have reached retirement and for the first time actually have the time to learn an instrument.

I teach every genre!

That’s actually not true. I teach  traditional rock, indy and pop as well as advanced fingerstyle folk and blues. Exactly what we do in your lessons depends on the music you enjoy. Students should seek specialist tutors for a true classical and jazz approach.

What Do I Teach?

Guitar Lessons

Acoustic guitar or Electric guitar lessons in Stockport. I’ve played both for 15+ years in a variety of styles.

Bass Guitar Lessons

Over the last few years Bass has become my favourite instrument. I’ve actually chosen to play bass for my function band rather than guitar!


Ukulele Lessons

Ukulele is an amazing gateway into music. A low cost instrument that offers an immediate reward.
