Ben Sturge


Welcome to ''Ben Sturge Guitar''...

Hello, My name is Ben Sturge and I am an experienced Peripatetic Guitar Tutor and Full Member of The Registry of Guitar Tutors (RGT), teaching students of all ages in a range of different musical styles.

I teach:

Electric Guitar
Acoustic Guitar (Both Nylon and Steel strung)
Music Theory
Basic Composition

Styles & Genres taught are:

Basic Jazz

I teach Privately from my own studio in Bexley/Bexleyheath and can travel to Private students directly. I also teach at several schools both Secondary and Primary.

I have gained Distinctions in both Advanced Practical and Written examinations in Acoustic and Electric guitar playing and Music Theory with these qualifications being assessed and awarded by The University of West London and administered by LCM (London College of Music). I am also a Full Member of RGT (The Registry of Guitar Tutors)

I bespoke and tailor my lessons to each individual student, keeping the 'fun' element by building confidence, helping students with improvising and learning any songs they would like to learn.

I introduce simple melodies, harmony, scales, arpeggios and modal playing which teach students how these essential techniques and elements are applied in everyday music from Classical to Rock !

This style of teaching helps steer my students in the direction to eventually becoming self sufficient.

I have the enjoyment of teaching students of all ages and levels from South East London and Kent and my belief is that with time and patience, anyone can learn to play a musical instrument !.........

''Learning to play the guitar has given me a focus, structure and most of all many hours of fun over the years. It can be very satisfying learning a song or even a few chords so you can make your own songs or improvise your existing favourites..... The great thing about music is that we are all students so no matter what level you are, the learning never stops !''
