Tony Watterson Music Tuition 0161 434 1933

By the age of 16, I was playing the guitar and accordion in various bands entertaining in pubs and clubs (my Dad was our manager and roady/driver.) I went "solo" by the time I was 18 and turned professional aged 20.

During my career I have worked many summer seasons in Blackpool, seasons at Butlins and other holiday camps, and have travelled all over the UK (including Shetland!). I have also entertained the troops over in Germany and our very own Royalty here in the Hotel Piccadilly, Manchester. Even more impressively I once appeared with Richard and Judy on Granada's "This Morning" programme!

I started teaching 15 years ago and achieved teaching qualifications through the N.O.C.N. This then qualified me to teach around schools but I soon discovered I preferred the "one-to-one" approach. Over the years I have had many successful students pass through my doors. Every one had arrived as a student and left as a friend. I take great pride in my students' achievements and have had the pleasure of going to see some of them perform and develop into fine musicians.

Married with children of my own, I am a patient teacher who tries to make each lesson an enjoyable experience and will always endeavour to incorporate pupils' ideas and music choices into the music course.
I include music theory as I believe that learning to read music really isn't that hard and will benefit all your playing.
If your aim is to play in public, with my vast gigging experience I can advise on stage presentation, microphone technique and how to overcome those "pre-performance nerves!"
I offer a free no obligation half-hour lesson so that we can discuss your requirements and get you started.
My fee for an hour lesson is £25 but longer or shorter lessons are available. I am available for lessons during the day as well as in the evening.
