About

Luke is a contemporary fingerstyle guitarist and Cardiff guitar teacher, playing a wide range of music and styles on the instrument. 
Luke began his musical journey at the age of six. He quickly became infatuated with the instrument, spending countless hours practising and honing his skills. In his 15 years with the instrument Luke has played and performed at both county and national levels; performing on television, in musicals and spending several years in the National Youth Jazz Band of Wales. Luke has received many awards and qualifications for his playing, including the Ralph Davies award for the 'Most Promising Young Jazz Musician', and two grade 8 distinctions in guitar. 
Most recently Luke has completed his studies at leading European conservatoire Leeds College of Music, studying popular music performance. During his time there he trained in music tuition, and ran workshops with Leeds College of Music's prestigious 'Saturday Music School'.

Lessons

I offer private one-to-one guitar lessons based on Richmond Road in Cardiff, with nearby parking.

Lessons are suitable for all abilities and ages, and are entirely bespoke focusing on your goals, and what you want to learn. I teach from beginner guitar lessons all the way up to diploma and degree standard.

I can use my many years of experience as a guitarist and musician to help you escape countless avoidable mistakes and hours of frustration, and make your learning as enjoyable and efficient as possible.

Having an experienced teacher can cut years off your learning time by enabling you to play the correct way from day one, making it the easiest way to learn guitar – alongside offering a more personal and rewarding experience.

I teach a wide array of musical styles including acoustic guitar, electric guitar, classical guitar, jazz guitar, celtic guitar, bluegrass guitar, and my speciality, fingerstyle guitar.

    “Luke is an outstanding guitar player and his passion shines through when you watch and listen to him. He feels every moment of each piece he plays, creating not just a performance, but an exceptional experience. This fervour also translates beautifully when recording Luke for songs and scores, which makes him a ‘go-to’ player to work with. I have had the pleasure of watching/playing with Luke many times and not once had a dull moment. He is very knowledgeable, patient and adaptable. He is also a very genuine and good-natured person, I would recommend him to anyone!”
