About me

Learn With Confidence

I've been playing for over 25 years and in that time I've been involved in producing albums, various session work, corporate and private gigs, workshops, UK festival appearances plus writing my own material for The Simon Kennedy Band.

I've taught privately for 15 years and have also worked with Dundee City Council through their Youth Music Initiative which brought music lessons to every primary school pupil within the city.

Simon is not just a great guitar player, he's also an incredibly patient teacher. He'd have to be - he's even helped me!

I found Simon to be a nice guy and a very good teacher making the lessons interesting and he also has the right patient attitude allowing the lessons to be stress free so as you can learn at your own speed and ability. I have been taking lessons on a weekly basis for four months now and am planning to keep up with them.
