Online Flamenco Guitar Lessons via Skype

Bob has inspired me to become a better guitarist and although I know that’s not something that is going to happen overnight, I genuinely feel that with Bob not only will I get there but I’m going to enjoy the journey – Olly Payne

Bob Hooper’s Flamenco guitar lessons are now available with Skype which means one-to-one guitar lessons in the comfort of your own home regardless of where you are in the world.

I now offer online guitar lessons via Skype which are just like one-to one lessons at my home studio – the only difference is that I will be in London, and you’ll be anywhere in the world.

I offer a free 20 minute session to begin with. This gives us a chance to meet online so we can discuss your requirements. It also allows us both to make sure the Skype connection is working before you make a payment.

Once we’ve met online, we’ll find a regular time for your online lessons, arrange for payment via PayPal, and get you started. You can buy one lesson or a series of lessons.

Regardless of whether you want to learn Flamenco guitar, Rock guitar or Classical guitar, thanks to the magic of the internet and Skype you can now do so without even having to leave your home!

I’ve been having guitar lessons with Bob for over a year now and I’m very lucky to have him as a teacher. I’ve learnt many new techniques with him and he teaches these to me by picking pieces that he thinks I will enjoy. Plus his passion for music is unparalleled and he has many wonderful stories – Jo Sutcliffe
