The guitar is one of the most popular instruments used in many styles. One riff or chord progression is all it takes for someone to recognise their favourite song. It has a number of distinct characteristics that resonate on many different levels, whether it be electric or acoustic, solo or in an ensemble. Guitar lessons at Howling Wolves Studios will focus on developing correct technique and a strong understanding of the theory and sight reading skills required to play the songs you love - whilst keeping it fun and exciting!
The bass guitar is the bridge that connects rhythm, harmony and melody. It has the ability to change the drive and feel of the music across all styles. The bass guitar has a close relationship with the drums and is integral in ensemble performance as well as being a unique solo instrument. Bass guitar lessons at Howling Wolves Studios will focus on playing techniques, music theory, and all the skills necessary to allow you to perform the songs you love, as well as the ones you want to create.
The ukulele is smaller in size with only 4 strings. It is portable and allows for simple chords to be mastered easily. The ukulele is an excellent instrument for beginners, alternatively, it can also provide a unique challenge for experienced musicians who want to explore the full range of its capabilities (check out Jake Shimabukuro). Ukulele lessons at Howling Wolves Studios will focus on the distinct art of playing the ukulele, including correct technique, sight reading, music theory and all the skills required to play your favourite songs in a fun, exciting and inspiring way.
'Eddie has taught guitar to my three sons, graduates of HSPA, and myself over the last 13 years. His practical skills are stunning, his handling of theory is lucid and cogent and personally a nice guy. 11 out of 10.'Allan Harvey Parent and Guitar Student
'I have had Eddie as a guitar teacher for nearly 10 years. He is easy to understand and patient. Whether it's teaching you a song, scale or theory, he takes his time to make sure that you understand each and every part. He makes it clear what he wants you to do between lessons and goes over anything that has proven to be difficult or hard to understand. Overall Eddie accommodates your playing ability and style to help you improve as a musician.'Angus Glascock Guitar Student
