About Paul

Guitar lessons in Bearsden and Milngavie are given by me, Paul.

Here’s a wee bit about me!

I live in Glasgow with my wife and seven year-old Boxer dog, Lola.


I’m 35, from Glasgow and have been a professional guitar teacher for 14 years, having played for over 20.  I’m also a performer, respected session musician and songwriter.

An incredible guitarist who stole the show, leaving many a gig-goers jaw on the floor with his classy, yet breath-taking fingerstyle.

_ Review in ‘The Skinny’ magazine

I began giving guitar lessons in the West End of Glasgow, Bearsden and Milngavie back in 2004.  At the beginning I used to walk between student’s homes which took me quite a while!  I then invested in the heaviest bicycle ever made and became a guitar lessons courier – Thankfully I have since learned to drive!

After many years of teaching in the West End of Glasgow as well as Milngavie and Bearsden, I made the tough decision to withdraw from the West End and teach only in East Dunbartonshire.  Hence why my business is still called ‘West End Guitar’. Traffic and parking in the West End made this decision necessary – you know what it’s like trying to get parked and deal with traffic in the West End!

Myself and Lola in the mountains – our favourite thing to do (after guitar :-p-)!

Music is my passion, my life (after my wife and dog of course!), and teaching students guitar in Glasgow every day is an absolute joy.  I am immensely proud to have helped hundreds of adults and kids learn how to play guitar and achieve their guitar and music goals since 2004.

I also perform as a live singer songwriter.

As a session musician, I play guitar and lend vocals to various artists’ recordings around the UK both in the studio and live.

I have toured the country performing my own material, in various original bands and have recorded several EP’s and albums.

WestEndGuitar is a small business solely operated by myself and is my profession. Your hard earned money is going to an experienced, hard-working musician giving quality, value lessons who lives to teach and teaches to live – not a cheap part-timer looking for extra cash on the side.  No-one offers the professional, elite service and extras I do, so why compromise?
