Astley Guitar Tuition

About Me

Hi, My name is Mark James.

I have been playing guitar since I was 12 and have been playing in bands since I was 15. I now record under the name Back Bone Shiver – a solo project.
I have been teaching for over 15 years now. mainly in the Bolton area but branching out into Leigh, Walkden, Manchester and Horwich. I love it, as a business it keeps me off the streets but as a vocation I have loved every minute of it.

My philosophy when it comes to music has always been no boundaries and I apply that to my teaching. If you want to play for yourself or others then I’m more than happy to help.

I teach all styles of guitar, I also play bass, banjo, ukelele and mandolin.  I also have a decent project studio recording setup which is also available to students should they need it..
