Online Lessons now available!

While the Covid restrictions are on us all, I am teaching over Skype, Zoom, Microsoft Teams and What’s App. Lessons are one-to-one as always. If you need something to keep you sane during this challenging time, why not try learning the guitar?

My name’s Simon Lees and I’m a friendly, experienced and knowledgeable guitar teacher based in Wolverhampton. Having been a finalist in ’93, ’94 and ’95, I won Guitarist Magazine’s Guitarist of the Year competition in 1998. I’ve played in lots of bands and from 2003 to 2007 I toured and recorded as lead guitarist in the legendary classic rock trio Budgie.
I have many free guitar lesson videos on here so you can see straight away if I’m the right guitar teacher for you. My top tip is that no two guitar teachers are the same. Anyone can call themselves a guitar teacher regardless of knowledge or experience. Always bear that in mind when choosing your guitar teacher! For more info you can email me, any time at Also you can have a look at my Wikipedia page HERE
