Acoustic Guitar Lessons with Rik Roberts
Rik Roberts offers acoustic steel-string guitar tuition to all ages and abilities from his home teaching studio in Hazel Grove, Stockport or online via Skype/Zoom.
Whether it's children or adults, absolute beginners or music college level players, he has 30 years of experience in making this style of guitar accessible to all learners.
Rik teaches the following acoustic guitar styles:
Blues, Jazz, Folk, Country, Popular, Contemporary, Fingerstyle, Travis Picking, Percussive Style, Frailing and Strumming.
Once a learner is past the basics, Rik's teaching approach incorporates a focus on skills which can be transferred to any songs/music you wish to play in the future. These may be applied to a particular song initially and then adapted to many songs according to the learner's musical taste.
There is always an emphasis on student-autonomy and encouraging learners to correct themselves and trouble-shoot their own playing in-between lessons.
Finally, he wishes to pass on his own passion for guitar by encouraging all learners to explore the instrument outside of the lessons by listening, watching videos/documentaries and attending gigs.
