Guitar | Lessons

Welcome to a new way of approaching and learning guitar. Playing has been a consuming passion of mine since 1989, and I am blessed to be have become a professional musicians. This passion is something that I would like to pass onto you. My approach to teaching guitar is to pass on the knowledge that I have acquired, but in a way that you will become the guitar player that you would like to become. Think of me as the tour guide on the adventure that you have dreamed about going on.

The students that I take on are those who are at an intermediate or advanced level and passionate and fully committed to learning, practicing and playing guitar.

My lessons incorporate technique, but wrapped in the practical application of creating and writing music and learning some songs along the way as well. Over the years that I have taught guitar, I have found this to be the most inspiring, engaging and exciting method of learning music. It makes you feel like you’re learning the music you love, but also creating music and it feels great as you are really immersed in the this. I like all of my students to realise their ambitions to be able to play they way that they dream about.

Teaching the notes is the easy part, so I like to focus in on the really fine details as well which will help you achieve the sound and style that you really love to hear and want to be able to play. So, if you want to sound like Dave Gilmour for example, then we’ll explore everything from which guitar to use, which pickups, how to set up your tone and effects, the picking style and how that affects the tone of your playing, the vibrato, the pauses and the empty spaces between the note; If you want to learn the style of George Lynch, then we’ll explore his licks and solos and the techniques that make his playing uniquely his;  – absolutely everything that is going on in the music! This has helped me to not only play the songs of my guitar heroes, but also sound like them and create/write music like them as well!

I have taught private classes since 2006 and my experience includes many years of recording and Youtube videos, touring, teaching hundreds of students.

I have a YouTube channel on which I post videos every week and which has a lot of guitar lessons as well on which you can check out my playing and teaching style: Jay Parmar on YouTube

I offer weekly lessons that are 1 hour or 45 mins long, and have a 3 Lesson Special (which is 3 lessons on 3 consecutive weeks) and I teach from my recording studio in Saltdean, Brighton, or over the internet using Zoom Calls or FaceTime.

I would love to hear from you and be your guitar ‘tour guide’ :)

Have an amazing day and happy playing…

Jay is extremely patient and puts you at ease especially when trying to cope with difficult pieces of music. 

He has a great range of abilities and skills and he uses these to teach you the tricks to make it sound like music and not just a string of notes.
