More Cardiff Pupils Achieving Success With Rockschool Guitar Grades After Lessons With Tom Power Guitar.

with No Comments

Guitar lessons are paying off for these Cardiff pupils, studying with Tom Power Guitar. Every pupil passed with a Merit in their RSL Rockschool guitar grades, great work team!


Studying a recognised grading syllabus is a great way to set goals and supplement the learning experience, providing a range of benefits that stretch beyond the realms of guitar playing. Achieving success in grade exams requires self discipline, dedication and confidence, these skills are directly transferable to many aspects of school, work and social life. These skills are something that the tuition and study process can develop and build upon, setting pupils up for future success. Additionally to this gaining grades with a certified syllabus is a great way to add additional academically recognised qualifications. For those considering university in the future, achieving awards at grade 6 and above grants you valuable additional UCAS points for the application process.


For me personally, the biggest benefit I see from grade exams is the progress in pupil ability that comes after the exam and the studying is complete. Those weeks of increased practice and dedication alongside the confidence boost and reassurance of successfully achieving the set goals has a huge impact on the abilities of most pupils. Putting this heightened playing ability to use learning and performing 'real songs' that pupils may not have been capable of playing prior to the grade study helps to drive home the concept that practice, hard work and dedication can deliver great results.


For pupils attending guitar lessons in Cardiff with Tom Power Guitar I am able to provide tuition for grade study from the debut exam right through to grade 8.

What are home visit guitar lessons?


Just like it say's on the tin!

Guitar lessons provided in the comfort and convenience of your own home.

Removing the requirement for transporting kids (or indeed yourself) to and from lessons greatly reduces the amount of time lessons occupy in your day.

Easier to schedule. More free time. Less hassle.... Very popular with busy parents! 


How does it work?


We discuss different options available and agree on a suitable day and time that can be committed to for regular lessons. I will arrive at the agreed time and location with a guitar, music stand and all materials required.

All you need to provide is a quiet space, a chair and a pupil.


What areas do you cover?


I mainly operate in Cardiff and the surrounding areas however I also provide lessons in Pontypridd, Bridgend and Porthcawl. Live nearby but not in the areas mentioned? Get in touch and we can discuss the options available. 


Does it cost more?


In order to cover my own time and travel costs i have to add a small charge onto my basic lesson costs.

However, customers generally agree that once the additional costs of involved travelling to and from my teaching location are taken into account, my home visit rates work out as a great deal. Easy to forget costs such as fuel or bus tickets, the coffee you'll buy while waiting and the snacks to occupy siblings can quickly add up....

I also offer deals for hour lessons, great for siblings or friends!


How do I find out more and book a lesson?
