Paul Cantillon Guitar and Bass Tuition


Guitar and Bass Tuition
I have been teaching guitar and bass since 2008 at the Forum Music Centre in Darlington. I provide a complete range of tuition, tailor made to the individual's preferred style.
Additionally, I run the Forum Music School which offers group tuition on drums and guitar.
Learners range from complete beginners right up to semi professional adults.

A complete range of tuition, following a structured and graded progression
I like to do things differently ... but for the better! When I first started in 2008, it was with a simple premise: that I should aim to provide the best learning experience for the individual - suited to their own aims - whether it was to gain UCAS points for University (a Grade 8 can earn up to 75) or for the learner to play for personal pleasure.
A major part of playing an instrument is the fun you can have playing - and this can be demonstrated most effectively by performing in a totally live setting which is why, every year, my students get that opportunity in front of a real audience in a real venue.
