About Ollie DS

Oliver is an experienced and versatile musician who is keen to pass on his love and passion for music. He graduated from Leeds College of Music in 2017 with a 2:1 degree in Popular Music, focusing on electric guitar and song writing, and he is very active as a gigging musician around Leeds and further afield. Oliver plays in several diverse groups (ranging from heavy rock to acoustic duet) and feels that as a working musician he brings valued practical tips to his teaching, showing pupils how to apply technique to real music making. He is a relaxed and friendly chap, with a great sense of humour, so lessons are guaranteed to be fun!

First lesson
The lesson will begin with a chat and simple questions to get to know the student and what they want to gain out of lessons. We will then look at an introduction to the instrument, correct technique and a basic goal to take away to work on. Oliver always makes sure to help inspire and make the student feel comfortable and by having clear set goals to work towards achieving the best possible experience of learning music.

The most important aspect for beginners is to get straight into learning practical music. Students are shown what to practice between each lesson. Correct technique learnt from the start is crucial for future success but, importantly, the lessons are always kept fun and interactive.

Please feel free to write to me if you have any questions or if you are interested in signing up for lessons. I look forward to hearing from you!
