Guitar, Music Tuition

Carl Gurney - Guitar & Music tuition

I provide guitar tuition in all styles in St.Albans.


I have a great wealth of experience from Sessions to shows, studio work to composition. I was also Chief Recording technician and head of music performance and technology at Sanctuary Art of Sound Studios in Watford. I also arrange music for theatre performances.


I have taught Guitar & Music Production for Hertfordshire Music Service.


I also teach Music through Ukulele at Windermere Primary School.


For new students I always do a four week trial so you can make sure you are happy with the way I teach.


Please read the testimonials as people who have learnt with me know best how I teach.

I have Grade 8 Honours on Classical guitar and I do teach grades for Classical students.


I also studied contemporary Guitar and performance at The Musicians institute around 1994.


I focus on positivity and the enjoyment of making music. Grades can be useful, however, they are not essential and I personally prefer to work without them for Electric guitar. I have my own very effective Electric Guitar syllabus which I have developed since 1996.



People who enjoy making music tend to do it for a long time, I see no real benefit in pushing every student to pass a grade 8 with Honours if they just end up hating me and the guitar in the process.



Students should want to practice, they shouldn't need to be forced to practice.

No one needs to be told to have fun!
