Whether your want to go from beginner to pro, do the Grades, learn a new style, need inspiration or just learn your favourite songs, Leon; guitarist for Joss Stone & Natty and many more, takes you wherever you want to go on your instrument.

Leon has been teaching guitar professionally since 2006. With a huge love for teaching, he feels the reward himself as much as his dedicated students.

Whether it be 1 to 1, small/large groups or workshops; Leon's style of teaching is based on inspiration. This may be through encouraging creativity, relating all things taught to the real world or to what the student is into, or even just inspiring the student as a musician/personality.

Leon adapts to each students interests, personality and needs. Tailoring lessons to suit the student. Each student is different.

It is important for the students to feel relaxed during lessons. The student should expect a very informal atmosphere, yet a productive session every time. A student should never feel intimidated, or feel that the lesson is in anyway a chore.

Lessons can cover:

Technique, music theory, sight-reading, composition, songwriting, improvisation, arranging, producing, performing, song repertoire and different musical/players/session styles. Alongside this Leon provides knowledge of the music industry through his own experiences as a professional working musician within the industry.

About your host, Leon Michael King Guitar Tuition

Leon comes from a musical family, he had his Dad, Grandads, and Uncles to share jam sessions and musical experiences with from a very young and impressionable age. Leon's Dad introduced him to the guitar and the world of rock music at the age of 5. Growing up in and around Reading, Leon was naturally immersed in regular jam sessions with his family and friends, honing his skills in Blues, Folk, Rock and Jazz to name a few. After a while, whether he realized it or not, music became Leon's path. It was around the age of 7, after realizing he already had a serious talent on the guitar, his parents got him classical guitar lessons with teacher Terry Bryanton. By the time he was around 16 years of age, he had completed his Grade 7, was in 3 bands and about to head to Reading College of Music & Art.

Throughout school and college Leon was always busy playing; always jamming, starting new bands and becoming a part of new projects. It was at college where Leon met Aqua Levi, a reggae singer who inspired and mentored Leon's love and interest in Carribean music. Leon then managed to get bank funding to enroll into The Academy of Contemporary Music, where he became an extremely popular guitarist among other musicians on both Performance and Production courses. Before he left ACM with a BA (hons) in Music Performance, he had already been on several UK tours, played on many studio recordings and been put forward for an Audition for a world tour with UNKLE.

Leon then moved to London immediately and quickly ended up becoming a regular gigging and recording guitarist with countless artists, such as Hempolics, Paulo Nutini, DJ Vadim, Outmode, Frank Hamilton, Megan Henwood, Roots Manuva and Bananklan among others. He also curated his own project with his good friends - The Drop. It was only a short matter of time before his talents got noticed by the likes of Joss Stone and Natty.
