Guitar, Bass, Banjo and Ukulele Lessons

All my lessons are individually tailored to each student because you can learn to play an instrument by playing songs that matter to you.  This approach is harder work for me but more rewarding and fun for both of us!

Stockport Guitar Lessons


Welcome to the homepage for guitar teacher Andrew Hammond. Due to easy access from the A6, A34 and Junction 1 of the M60 ring road my current students travel from Stockport, Cheadle, Cheadle Hulme, Bramhall, Wilmslow, Heaton Moor, Heaton Chapel, Didsbury, Burnage and other nearby areas.

On this site you can find information about how I like to teach, what instruments I can teach, whether I’m any good at playing myself (!) and what music stuff I do when I’m not tutoring.

Experienced Tuition

As an experienced musician and qualified sound engineer I am lucky enough to have the opportunity to teach one-to-one guitar, bass, banjo and ukulele lessons to my students whilst also facilitating several youth music workshops around Manchester and managing a recording studio at Z-Arts called Studio Z.

Relaxed lessons

I always aim to provide relaxed lessons that focus on the interests of each individual student. There will be plenty of opportunities to learn the songs you’ve always wanted to play, and hopefully you’ll let me reveal how they were created too.

Any style, any ability

I am able to teach all standard styles, including Rock/Pop/Blues and Jazz, from beginner to advanced levels, to students of all ages (my youngest is four and the oldest 80!). I specialise in acoustic folk guitar and advanced fingerpicking techniques. As an accomplished bass, banjo, ukulele, Weissenborn slide, and 12-string guitar player I also provide tuition for these instruments too. For the very beginner students who have not yet bought their own guitar, or those using public transport, I am happy to share my instruments.

My Qualifications

In brief, my qualifications and tutoring history includes a sound engineering degree (2:1 BA Hons) and experience teaching KS3, GCSE and A-Level music and music technology in schools. I am able to provide a full CRB check undertaken to allow work with young people. Parents of younger students are more than welcome to sit in on the first lesson or two to learn about the tutoring I provide.
