Mike Barnes – Guitar & Piano Tutor

Mike Barnes Guitar PianoA teacher at Booths for many years, Mike tutors budding musicians of all ages and abilities. With a degree in composition and recording (completing the former to Masters level), Mike has vast experience in a number of musical disciplines.

Mike has been playing piano most of his life and has achieved his grade 8 (RSL). Similarly, he has also played guitar for many years and teaches students up to grade 8. His specialities in both guitar and piano are blues, funk, latin and pop. Mike also tutors music theory (classical ABRSM and popular LCM) up to the same grade as well as music performance.

A whole range of piano pupils benefit from the skills of our music tutors in our light and airy teaching studios – many have progressed to success through the ABRSM, Trinity College and London College schools of music, while others are happy to enjoy the music they love to play in a relaxed environment.
