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.

I feel extremely luck to have found Luke and can echo the thoughts of the other reviews here. He's is an extremely talented musician & teacher, taking great care to prepare material for lessons that suit your playing style and skill level. Lessons are not only fun and engaging but I'm constantly picking up small tips that I'd never get from watching online tutorials. In only a few months I've progressed further than I thought possible! He's also just a great guy, very easy to get along with, the hour flies by! His skill at fingerstyle guitar inspires me constantly to better myself.read more

I am 35 and started lessons with Luke around 2 months ago, after finding information about him through a simple Google search. His website said that his approach to teaching was to ‘make your learning as enjoyable and efficient as possible.’ I can confidently say and without any hesitation that Luke has delivered on this promise and more! Luke is not only a tremendously talented musician, but an equally talented teacher. His style of teaching is a masterful blueprint for how to enthuse interest in learners to play the guitar. He’s always patient, very friendly, very practical in his approach to teaching, which fosters greater interest in me, and always tailors his lessons to my interests and needs. His advice is second-to-none and has allowed me to improve consistently every week. It would not have been possible over the past 2 months for me to have made the progress that I have, had I chosen another teacher or tried to learn it on my own through online tutorials. Nothing beats a one-to-one teacher and especially when the teacher is as talented as Luke. If you’re interested in learning the guitar, no matter your age or level of skill, I cannot recommend Luke enough. You will not regret it!read more

After many years of just messing about with guitar have been fortunate to find Luke with whom I have been attending lessons for a few weeks. Luke is a very talented musician who is not only a great guitar player but also a very competent music arranger. After just a few weeks I have made significant progress which without doubt could be better if I had more time to practice. I have no hesitation in recommending Luke as a teacher!read more

I have always wanted to learn to play the guitar, I was introduced to Luke by a very dear friend of mine. At first I was very skeptical as to whether I could learn, Luke is calm, patient and always willing to go over things more than once, he has made me feel very at ease and with his unique style of teaching I am truly enjoying every minute of our lessons. Young or in your primary years (as I am) Luke is definitely the teacher for you!read more

    “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!”
