About Marcus Richardson - Southampton Guitar Academy

Friendly Professional Guitar Lessons In Southampton to Take Your Playing To The Next Level!

Whether you want to learn for fun, or you are a serious musician looking to take your playing to the next level, I offer friendly, professional tuition to help you achieve your guitar playing dreams.

Unlike other more traditional music teachers I provide a complete lesson package and support that go's beyond the lesson time in my studio.

This makes a big difference to the results you can expect because most of the progress you make takes place in practice sessions between lessons. This is something that most music teachers don't offer support with. I have developed a special online student resource to make this practice time as fun and effective as possible, when used in combination with lessons.....

I am passionate about helping people to develop their potential to become successful confident musicians, whether they are starting out or have already been playing for years.

I only work with students that I can get great results with.... For this reason I back my teaching service up with a "better than money back guarantee"

"Marcus planned his lessons around my ability and what I wanted to learn. I've been playing the guitar for many years without tuition and wanted to learn more about the blues and begin the journey of understanding more about music theory. I'm still playing with the interesting insights and ideas that Marcus taught me. I found his tuition to be very valuable and good fun. Jolly nice chap too."
- Steve Atterwal (Oct 2012)

"Marcus is a great teacher and my playing has certainly improved since I started at SGA just a few months ago. He's given me the focus and confidence I needed to keep learning and to try different things and it's paying off."
- Steve Cartwright (Mar 2014)
