Gizz uses Recording equipment, drum machines, effects and backing tracks to create a live track for the lessons and everything runs through the studio. The premises double up as an actual recording studio so the sound is AWESOME.

Gizz has a definite approach with everyone he teaches which enables him as a teacher to find your goals and help to reach those goals. This will enable you to pinpoint your tastes, learn your favourite songs ,then piece together the theory that was used to create them so that you can:

  • Understand what you are learning.
  • Find learning future songs easier.
  • Construct your own songs.
  • Become musically knowledgeable and verbal.
  • Make learning theory interesting so you can become as good a player as you want to.

If necessary Gizz will create a backing track for you, if you need help in playing in front of a live audience there is no one more experienced than Gizz to help you do that, or if you want to sing and play at the same time Gizz will help you do that.

There are simple courses available where after 10 weeks you will be tested and awarded a certificate if you reach a certain criteria but these courses are not compulsory. The aim is to get everyone playing brilliantly and to enjoy what they do and reach their goals. Or you can go for the Rock School grades and earn a university recognized qualification.

Gizz can teach pairs and larger teams for an arranged fee.

All lessons are based in Peterborough at Gizz's studio. They are arranged and confirmed by phone but 24 hours must be given for any cancellations:
