Paul Thornton - Solo Guitarist - Weddings, parties and special occasions

Guitar Lessons

As well as performing, Paul has been teaching guitar professionally for over 10 years now, working in Primary & Secondary Schools and Sixth Form Colleges. Students have ranged from 4 to 84 years old! He has performed with students at venues such as the Bolton Albert Halls, the Victoria Hall and the Reebok/Macron stadium. Over this time, Paul has devised many different methods of teaching the guitar - after all, no two people are the same! Whoever you are or whatever your ability on the guitar, you are guaranteed to improve.

Private guitar lessons are available at his home during daytimes and evenings as weekly sessions for the aspiring musician or one-off lessons for the casual learner.
