Guitar Lessons Enfield

Hi, welcome to Guitar Lessons Enfield! I'm Oliver McKiernan and I've been a professional, London-based session musician for 12 years. During that time I've played along side James McCartney, Paul McCartney, The Specials, Tony Christie and Pete Molinari on various tours. As well as performing on many TV and radio shows. I also write and record my own music which has been played a number of times on different BBC radio shows.

Teaching is something I have a great enthusiasm for and I've always done it along with performing. It's important for me to deliver high quality lessons to you and I try to go the extra mile to make sure that's the experience you'll get. Working with people of any ability or age is something I really enjoy; the youngest person I currently teach is 6 years old, the oldest is 71.

Perhaps you have kids who want lessons to enrich the early years of their learning or help them through a school performance? Maybe you want to top up some lessons you had a few years ago for yourself? Or do you just want to chill in the park on a sunny day with a guitar? We can work together on a fun and easy route to achieving those goals. All my lessons are tailored to your own needs and I have a huge library of resources and techniques to help you through the sometimes mysterious world of learning an instrument.

Oliver McKiernan Guitar Lessons Enfield Teacher

I'm happy to do one-off lessons, arrange a regular slot or just take each week as it comes. We can cover anything from the tricky 'day one' questions like "How do I tune this thing?" to complex ideas about composition, theory, technique and playing by ear. Plus the all important; "What's going to impress people the most?"  

I have a well equipped home teaching studio with spare guitars so you can come straight from work without dragging your instrument on the tube. I also do home visits if traveling is difficult for you.

I'm not only a guitar teacher but am a regularly gigging music professional (see YouTube clip below) so you know that what is being taught is useful in the real world of learning how to play an instrument well.

Above all lessons are fun. If it's not fun then there's no point! I teach acoustic and electric guitar, left and right handed, electric bass, beginners to advanced, any age.

I'd be delighted to hear from anyone interested in taking up music. To book your first lesson or simply to find out more about my guitar lessons don't hesitate to get in touch by emailing

Electric & Acoustic Guitar

I cover all styles on both electric and acoustic guitar, enabling my guitar students to learn through the playing the songs that they love. Whether that is rock, pop, jazz, funk, blues, folk or anything in between we can cover it in our lessons. I have taught many beginner students over the years, developing a fantastic course of foundation lessons to enable my students to learn how to play the guitar at a pace that suits them. 

For more advanced guitarists I offer lessons to ensure that you reach that next level on guitar, whether that is improving improvistation, nailing solos or gaining a more rounded approach to playing guitar to a professional standard.

Learn To Play Guitar
I was a fairly new guitarist when I went to Hawi. Hawi got me play the music I liked, giving me confidence in my playing, coupled with the fact that you will be learning from one of the premier guitarists in the country. - Dean, Essex
