Hello. My name is Joe Shimmin and I am a professional guitar teacher located in Birmingham, West Midlands

Music is to be shared...

…and throughout my musical life I have been sharing music by teaching others. This has not only allowed me to develop a deep understanding in how to approach music education, but also helps me to grow as a musician with my students; it doesn’t matter how long you have been playing, there’s always more to learn!
I have a wealth of experience in guitar tuition teaching all kinds of students in a variety of settings. I am head faculty at a multinational guitar school for working professionals with schools in London, New York and Chicago. In addition, I have taught in many schools (secondary, primary and college-age) with great success and currently play an active role in music education in schools across the West Midlands.
I offer lessons in your own home across the South Birmingham area. The first trial lesson is just £10. Lessons thereafter are priced at £25 per hour, and typically take place once per week to ensure consistent learning. However, if you are preparing for an exam or audition I am happy for lessons to be conducted more regularly.
All styles and abilities are welcome, (although it is recommended that children be at least 8 years old before starting) and I tailor my lessons to each students’ musical taste and learning process.
Feel free to call (07790 418 462) or email to discuss any questions
