Welcome to the home page of local Guitar tutor Paul Lord.

Paul Originally began teaching guitar at Ilkeston School in 1999. He was accredited by the head of Derbyshire Education Authority (Phillip King) as an excellent guitar tutor.
Paul is Fully accredited and qualified with a 2:1 Ba hons Music Degree, Grade 8 Guitar & National Diploma in Music with Distinction
He joined the regional music partnership in 1999 and tutored the guitar in many schools in the Ilkeston, Derbyshire and Nottingham Areas. He also lectured Music at South East Derbyshire College in the East Midlands. Three years later he was commissioned to score the music for three films by two London Film Companies, these circulated in the US and Europe winning several industry awards, most notably at the New York, Sanfransisco and Raindance Film festivals. Paul has since scored over twenty films and has worked professionally as a composer since 2002. He Left the Partnership in 2002 to pursue the writing and now teaches guitar privately at his studio in Ilkeston.

Not every one that picks up the guitar is interested in following graded exams. Paul teaches many young and mature students, some complete beginners who simply enjoy learning to play their favourite songs and becoming competent on the instrument!
