Guitar Lessons

Whether you're a beginner or a more advanced musician, I can help you master new techniques and hone your skills to make your time playing guitar more enjoyable and more rewarding! I can teach you music theory and new styles, or simply how to play your favourite songs. I can also teach you how to train your ear so that you have the skills to figure songs out for yourself.

I'm adept at a wide range of styles from folk and bluegrass to pop and heavy metal and can cater for beginner to advanced level players, on electric or acoustic guitar. Strumming, flat-picking, thumbpick, fingerstyle, alternate tunings... you name it!

Ear training Lessons

A well trained ear is essential to becoming a well rounded musician. It'll help you figure out songs, play the ideas you hear in your head and - most importantly - play creatively with other musicians! I can teach you how to identify intervals and find them on the guitar, as well as how to hear and construct chords so you can quickly create your own compositions.

Songwriting Lessons

Some people play the guitar simply because they love playing, but for many people writing songs is the whole reason for picking it up in the first place. I can show you the structures and patterns underlying popular music, without the need to get bogged down with too much theory. (Though if you want the theory, that's fine too!).

Overview

My name is Ewan Wallace, and I'm a guitar player from the UK. I've been playing guitar for nearly 30 years, and playing professionally since I was 18. I studied jazz at Chichester college in England and have 20 years experience as a studio musician, sideman and touring guitar player. I've recorded and performed with artists ranging from Erykah Badu and Andreya Triana to Tricky and Chet Faker, and have been touring the world as guitar player with UK electronic music act Bonobo since 2006 (www.bonobomusic.com).

I don't have a set approach to teaching - I'll evaluate where you're at and tailor lessons to how your brain works and your own personal goals with the guitar. And most importantly, we'll have fun along the way!

Thanks for your consideration!
