Steve Brook’s Tone Workshop – Guitar and Bass Tuition
I have been playing guitar and bass professionally for over ten years in various situations, including original bands, function/cover bands, session work and international touring. I have taught for over eight years, working with children and adults in one-on-one and group settings. I play all styles of guitar such as slide, rock, metal, funk, reggae, blues, jazz, flamenco and country, with specialization in creative rock guitar techniques.
Teaching between Hove and Eastbourne, I am a friendly, flexible teacher, either taking you through my own syllabus or tailoring the lessons to focus on any aspects of your playing you wish!
Project-based sessions are available and exclusive to The Tone Workshop! I will work on any area or problem chosen by you using a full, modern digital recording studio setup (studio lessons available in Hove only).
Some common project topics covered are: Timing, tuning, tone, composition, session skills, equipment and effects, transcription/notation, recording parts and harmony guitars.
One-to-one lessons are delivered in one hour sessions either at The Tone Workshop or the client’s location, paid for in advance in blocks of four lessons. A single introductory lesson is available to try me out. Group lessons are done at my premises and are most suitable for friends and siblings wishing to share the cost.
I am CRB checked and hold a degree (BA Hons) in Professional Musicianship from University of Sussex (BIMM). Trinity or Rockschool grades and exams can be followed if required.
