Private Lessons


Leo Crossfield has taught Guitar, Mandolin and 5 String Banjo for 45 years to students of all ages. His qualifications are in Psychology and worked for many years as a Research Psychologist in the Department of Educational Studies at the University of Surrey researching teaching and learning styles.


The styles taught include Electric Guitar and Acoustic Guitar fingerpicking and flatpicking; covering genres of Blues, Jazz, Country, Bluegrass, Rock and Folk.


Styles include, Scruggs three finger picking, Melodic and Single String and Old-Time Frailing / Clawhammer; covering Bluegrass and Folk..


Styles include Jazz, Bluegrass and Folk.

All these lessons are developed from personal experience, rather than from text books, and are given on a one to one, in person or distance via Skype, and can be arranged for group tuition up to a maximum of six people.

Classes are designed for the level of the student's skills and interests and incorporate music theory where appropriate, correct technique and exercises to develop dexterity. Each lesson is designed to enable the student to gain confidence in applying the learning to live situations to enable them to confidently play with others in a band or to jam along for fun. A good understanding of how to use effects, microphones and amplifiers will be covered if required. I also offer lessons on studio recording, both Midi and Audio using Steinberg's Cubase and WaveLab.



Lessons cost £30 an hour.


Block bookings of four lessons with a fifth FREE bonus lesson (offered as an incentive) are available at £120 paid in advance for the five lessons. Block bookings enable me to have time to prepare progressive lesson plans and for the student to commit to structured regular lessons.

Payment and bookings can be done by Cash or Direct Bank Transfer, alternatively you can book an individual lesson or block of five lessons using the PayPal link below and email me with your contact details on leo@stringed-instruments.co.uk.
