About Me

Phil Armitage, Guitar TutorHi there, welcome to my new website!

I am a Registry of Guitar Tutors long-time member who has had input into the present exam system, and was instrumental for many years as an examiner. I also taught in many schools and colleges in the north west. Nowadays, by choice, I only teach privately in Preston, where I have a studio with excellent facilities, and a collection of guitar and banjo music second to none. Let me share my knowledge with you, and hand you the Gift of Music!

In my long career of over 20 years, I have taught guitar, classical guitar, rock guitar, acoustic guitar, fingerstyle guitar, blues guitar, Spanish guitar, early music and slide guitar, and for banjo, I have taught Bluegrass style, frailing banjo, clawhammer banjo and melodic style banjo. For the tenor banjo, I have taught Irish banjo and Dixieland banjo. Ukulele, bass guitar, even Appalachian dulcimer and mandolin have also been taught.

As a specialist, I have had pupils from Preston, Blackpool, Southport, Blackburn, Darwen, Walton-le-Dale, Bamber Bridge, Leyland, Coppull, Skelmersdale, Longridge, Garstang, Inglewhite, Longton, Penwortham, Fleetwood, Knott End, Hambleton,Wigan, Walmer Bridge, Grimsargh, South Ribble, Lytham and many more. My overheads are low, so my prices are really reasonable. So why delay, get in touch now.

I have a Blog here, called “Phil’s Pickin’ Parlour” so keep looking, as I’ll be keeping it up to date with interesting topics.
