What [Derek Gripper] is doing in his life with educational and other projects is inspiring, and to be honest, I think it is where the guitar should be going.
— John Williams in Classical Guitar Magazine UK


I teach kora repertoire on guitar, Bach, classical guitar repertoire (with a difference)  and coaching on performance: how changing your thinking can drastically change your playing. 

Lessons include access to learning materials (video, audio, scores). You will be added to a resource of video, audio and scores for the piece you are working on.  

Skype Guitar Lessons


Another option is an audio lesson. These are really my favourite. We get rid of the distraction of a screen and just play and discuss using headphones on Whatsapp or Skype Audio. This allows us to practice together, delve into performance problems, practice ideas, or just hear the phrases me need to while repeating them back. These lessons are slightly more affordable but actually just as good if not better as the Skype lesson. 

Audio Lessons


Arrangements of kora repertoire and Bach...original compositions...all here for purchase. For scores by Egberto Gismonti please get in touch. 


To teach yourself I have a few introductory resources which will help you play the catalogue of scores.  The best way to do this is to join Patreon.
