All About Guitar was conceived by David Gillam, a man with a somewhat unhealthy obsession with guitars and music production. His home studio in Hanham on the outskirts of Bristol is the stuff of legend in the local area.

David holds the following qualifications:

  • BTEC HND in Music Performance specialising in Guitar and Bass
  • BTEC HND  in Guitar and Music Theory
  • BTEC HND  in Music Production specialising in Live Performance
  • Associate Member of the Registry of Guitar Tutors
  • Rockschool certified as an instructor
  • Many years experience working in Primary and Secondary education through local authorities
  • David also has played in many bands touring extensively around the UK over the last 2 decades.

Guitar Lessons

Our in-person guitar lessons cater to both kids and adults, offering instruction on electric guitar, acoustic guitar, and bass guitar. As a DBS-cleared instructor with years of gigging experience, I ensure that our lessons are safe, engaging, and tailored to help you achieve your musical goals. The studio is equipped with CCTV for added safety and peace of mind.
