About me

My name is Ian Barker and this image shows me playing at a wedding reception – a distraction from my main occupation which is guitar teacher.   I studied guitar for three years at Leeds Music School and since then I have taught a wide range of students of all ages and abilities, and this includes some  local guitar tutors.  With 30 years experience behind me I believe that I  have developed into a competent teacher – one who recognises the need to give continual support and encouragement to my students whether they are studying for grades or simply playing the guitar as a hobby.


An Opportunity for you?

Why don’t you enrich your life and learn to play the guitar? You may be worried that you have left it too late in the day to learn an instrument – well that’s not true. I have successfully taught many complete beginners and feel sure that I have brought additional pleasure to their lives.
