Guitar Tuition

Harry Palmer

Harry started playing guitar at age 13 where he discovered his love for rock music. He later went on to study Acting and Music at Rose Bruford College of Performance, graduating with a BA Hons in Actor Musicianship in 2010. From 2013 - 2016 Harry was writing, recording and playing live music with his band, as well as singing for a Led Zeppelin Covers band. Since 2016 Harry continues to run both Acting and Music side by side.


Harry is influenced by many genres of music but his roots lie in Classic & Heavy Rock, Blues and Country, with Richie Sambora of Bon Jovi and Gary Moore as his lead guitar idols.


Harry is an individual who will bring a fresh perspective to a student’s musical journey, will open their minds to new styles and encourage dedication to the craft whilst balancing the theory and technique with the love of playing.

Paul Dolphin

Having so far clocked up 18 years of experience teaching children within Southend schools Paul is now also available for private tuition at Westcliff Music Academy.


With that in mind, students, should they wish, can be taught on a purely graded academic basis or lessons can be geared towards their individual needs/particular interests, whether that be plectrum guitar, finger style, classical or rock guitar.


Paul has many years of experience playing in the live band scene so whether your goal is to be able to accompany yourself purely for pleasure, or you wish to take things further, his goal is to make that an enjoyable journey, always working at the students pace.
