All lessons include resources and are backed up by support which is also included as part of lesson rate along with frequent opportunity to play along side other music students in a live playing format.

Elliot Green Guitar Tutor

I have always had a passion for music since I watched an old Bon Jovi VHS video at a (very) young age and seeing Richie Sambora play guitar. 

I realised then that I wanted to do that and be like him. I started playing guitar at the age of 8 and can play both electric and acoustic guitar.

I was in a band for 4 years and, in 2016, we won a battle of the bands competition at St. George’s Hall in Bradford. We released 2 EP’s, and a stand-alone single as well 3 music videos and we did 2 UK tours. We also played numerous local festivals and gigs. I am a keen song-writer and was heavily involved in all the writing of my band’s songs.

I have recently (September 2021) graduated from Leeds Beckett University with a 2:1 Bachelor of Science Honours Degree in Music Technology. During which I gained experience in recording music and setting up live sound events
