Richard Kirton - Guitar Teacher
Contact Richard Kirton
Guitarist with over 24 years playing experience. I am a graduate of the Guitar Institute (1994, now called The Tech Music School ) where I received coaching from world renowned players such as Shaun Baxter (Guitar Techniques monthly columnist), Dave Kilminster (Roger Waters touring guitarist) & Lee Hodgson (Lick Library Author). I have also studied with many top acoustic guitar players such as Jon Gomm, Thomas Leeb and Stuart Ryan.
My primary influences include David Gilmour, Edward Van Halen, Richie Blackmore, Jimmy Page and Michael Hedges.
I base all of my guitar lessons around the needs of the student, so whether your goal is to play along to your favourite pop songs or learn advanced percussive technique and alternate tunings, I can show you what you need to know to achieve your goals.

I am a supply guitar tutor for Nottinghamshire Performing Arts and an accredited tutor for Derbyshire Music Partnership. I also teach guitar for NCN (New College Nottingham)
I hold an enhanced DBS certificate.
I currently perform regularly in a successful Folk Rock band and also a Contemporary Balkan Ensemble.
