Guitar Lessons at the Norwegian School, London

Dan Hoyes - Guitar Tutor

Continuing for the 2016-2017 school year, I will be the resident guitar tutor at the Norwegian School based in Wimbledon.

I will be offering individual lessons for pupils of the school at a rate of £20 per 30 minute lesson on either a Tuesday or Thursday (subject to availability). The lessons will take place at the school in an upstairs classroom. I will also be helping to run the band sessions after school on a Thursday afternoon.


From complete beginners to more advanced playing, I have plenty of experience working with children (DBS checked – please ask to see this if required). I’ve taught many pupils privately from ages 5-70! And I have plenty of experience running youth music projects, drumming & ukulele workshops, large group guitar classes and bands mentoring.

acoustic guitarI like to keep the lessons varied and fun whilst still balancing a strong musical understanding and musical theory – I think it’s important to have a good grasp of what you’re doing and why it works as you’re playing.

I have a large amount of resources that focus on getting young people playing things they recognise as soon as possible, from repetitive guitar riffs to simple 2/3 chord songs.

I am also an RGT registered tutor who can guide your child through the various grade examinations that RGT offer in acoustic, classical or rock guitar (accredited by Thames Valley University).


Every year, there is a concert for all the pupils of Norwegian School instrument tutors. This works well, as it can be something to work towards, as well as a lot of fun on the day. The video below was the 2016 version. All footage taken from parent’s camera phones – I must record it properly next year!


  • £200 for ten 30-minute lessons
  • £290 for ten 45-minute lessons

Although the lessons take place at the school and the band sessions I run are a school activity, the private lessons are not – and as such, payments are to be made directly to myself. Lessons are to be paid for in batches of 10. As there would usually be roughly, 10 lessons each term, this would roughly equate to £200 a term. I can take payment by cheque sent with your child or I can send an invoice and take payment online via bank transfer or paypal.


If a lesson needs to be cancelled, you must give at least 48 hours notice. Lessons will obviously not take place outside of term time. If the pupil cannot make the lesson due to a school trip/activity, you still need to notify me. This is because I am only in school a couple of afternoons per week, and I can’t be notified by the school of activities for every age group.

On occasions, I may need to cancel a lesson myself. This would often be due to occasional touring work as a session musician that I am offered. This does not happen often, and if there are more than a few lessons missed each term, I shall try to provide cover for those lessons.

It is also worth noting that as theses lessons are private, the pupil would have to make his/her own way to the upstairs classroom at the correct time, as it would not be the staff’s responsibility. If they are not there immediately, I can go to find the pupil – but this does mean the lesson ends up being shorter.

N.B. My skills in the Norwegian language are virtually non-existent! (Although I’m keen on learning a few phrases to help with the lessons!) Depending on how much experience your child has had speaking English, it may be beneficial for you to sit in the first few lessons with us.
