Joe Perkins BMus (Hons), M.A.

Alongside my frequent performances at prestigious venues all over the UK and Europe, I am a professional guitar, bass guitar, and music theory tutor. I have lectured Jazz Improvisation at City University of London and have extensive experience of working in the state sector as a peripatetic and classroom teacher. I have been teaching privately for more than 5 years.

My musical interests range from Jimi Hendrix to John Dowland and everything in between. I have a passion for all styles and celebrate the variety of music I am fortunate enough to perform and teach as a private tutor. Whatever you want to accomplish in music, I can help you to succeed: Preparation for Guitar and Bass Guitar Grades 1-8 (ABRSM, Trinity, RGT, Rockschool), GCSE Music, A-Level Music/Music Technology, Music Theory (ABRSM and Trinity), Diploma and Degree Recitals. I also teach grades 1-5 Piano.

I am regularly booked as an accompanist for examinations and as a session musician for recordings and performances. Please contact me regarding availability.

I am based in St. John’s Wood, London.

I kindly ask that all new students complete the Musicians Union teaching contract:


I also kindly ask that guitar lesson cancellations be made no less than 24hrs before the scheduled lesson. If there is not sufficient notice, I may have to make a 50% charge for the allocated hour.
