About Guitar Lessons Derby

Hello and welcome to Guitar Lessons Derby! My name is Mark Leivers and I am a professional guitar teacher from Derby with a wealth of experience teaching and performing. I started playing the guitar as a child and it has been my passion ever since. I have immersed myself in a variety of styles from classical to pop, from rock to reggae! This has allowed me to play with many different bands/artists which has helped me to strengthen my playing by incorporating many different styles and techniques.

Whether you want to learn to play your favourite songs, work towards graded examinations or work on improving technique, I offer tuition in a friendly and engaging environment. All students are welcome from complete beginners to seasoned players, I tailor lessons to suit you and the type of player you want to become.

While learning to play the guitar I can teach you how to read music and learn songs by ear which are invaluable tools for any musician! I can also teach you to improvise with other musicians which is an extremely fun skill to have while also being a key technique in any versatile guitar player’s arsenal.

The guitar is an incredible instrument and one that is immensely rewarding to be able to play. Like learning any new skill, the guitar will be challenging at times but most importantly it will be fun, and at least for me, that’s the only reason I play!

Electric & Acoustic

Learning guitar is an activity that should be fun, not frustrating and dull. Therefore, my lessons are all about playing the music that inspired you to pick up the guitar in the first place. I am an expert at tutoring beginner students, so can help you play the guitar even if you have never touched one in your life before.

I have many years teaching experience and would be more than happy to teach you to play the guitar as well.

Professional Guitar Tuition
I've just gotten back from my first lesson with Mark and I am absolutely thrilled! He was really friendly, and within one lesson he was able to help me to play a small guitar riff that I could practise at home - Ed (beginner)
