Guitar Lessons by Tyler Massey

One of Worcestershire's most versatile and experienced music instructors offers guitar, bass, piano and music theory lessons to interested students. American-born musician Tyler Massey has been teaching for over 30 years and has changed the musical lives of countless students.

Flexible, creative, custom-written lesson plans and robust computer-supported curriculum are the centre of Tyler's teaching method, which is based on having fun and learning quickly.

All students are welcome, from beginners (over six years old, please) to intermediate or experienced players. Tyler excels at making Music Theory easy to understand and integrates it seamlessly into the lessons, alongside technique and ear training.


Tyler received his BFA in Guitar (with a Minor in Piano) in the United States in 1992, although he has taught professionally since the 1980s. He plays in various styles and has been in dozens of musical projects over the years, playing all types of classical, electric and acoustic guitar styles.

He moved to Malvern in 2005, and began teaching full-time in 2008. Based in West Malvern, he works in his fully-appointed lesson studio, but is willing to travel short distances in order to accomodate students who are unable to travel (please call for special pricing).


No matter what style you'd like to specialise in or what sort of guitar you play, you will be well looked-after: Tyler is well-versed in almost every style of guitar playing. His speciality is Classical: most of his students work towards Grades (Trinity or Associated Board), but that isn't a requirement, just an option. Tyler has never had a student fail a grade exam, and most of the students have acheived a merit or a distinction. Not all students choose to take the exams, even if they learn the curriculum involved and some just work on specific songs or styles. There is a slightly different lesson plan for each student. Tabulature is an option, but Tyler specialises in teaching with notation.


Piano lessons are also on offer, up to Grade Five standard, although we can pursue almost any method.


Lessons are available in three packages: One-off Lessons, 30 minutes per week, 60 Minutes per week.


There is a 5 cancellation fee if there is no contact before noon on the day of the scheduled lesson.


Monday to Friday from noon to 8:00 PM.
