I am Callum Kewen; a young guitar teacher based in Blyth, Northumberland. My qualifications are listed above. I have been playing guitar since the age of 12; being taught privately myself and I have been teaching since 2016.
I tend to teach with a ‘learn by ear’ approach rather than the theoretical approach. I find this is the most efficient way of allowing the student to understand why we need to learn the things we do but allowing them to become an independent musician over the long-term.
Since 2018, I am a self employed full time musician. My guitar tuition is one of three businesses that I currently manage.
I go under ‘DJ Kewen’ for my disco service where I provide music for parties and functions around the North East of England.

I also gig around pubs and clubs under the alias of ‘Kewen’ and I have my own recorded music. I also do this with my band ‘Kewen & The Crosswalks’.

My very shy 11 year old has lessons with Callum, I wasn't sure if she'd stick with it! But she's really enjoying her lessons, and despite not being the best at practicing she learns more every week, I've even started recognising some songs ha! Would definitely say that Callum had a knack with young people especially ones who may not be a naturally confident performer. Looking forward to seeing how she gets on, thank you


Having brilliant lessons with Callum - so much to learn from a great teacher. Highly recommended


Very patient in teaching my 2 kids with the guitar. Highly recommended


My daughter India has had lessons with Callum he is an excellent teacher and my daughter has since been chosen to play solo guitar at mass, thanks for your help Callum and good luck with your music


Highly recommend! Super patient teacher, I learned so much in my first lesson!


I finally started getting lessons after years of messing about self-learning, with an interest in the theoretical side, as well as the practical. Callum is a very friendly, knowledgeable and patient lad, and the advancement I've made in under 10 lessons is huge. Should have done it years ago! Highly recommended!


Absolutely great teacher, I’ve been learning just the 1 song since November so my lessons were quite out of the ordinary for Callum, he is patient and helped me to achieve my obscure goal!! Thank you, would definitely recommend!


My granddaughter has guitar lessons with Callum and absolutely loves being taught by him. Callum made her feel at ease straight away even though she was a complete beginner. Apart from him being very patient and a brilliant tutor he is also a very nice man and nothing is too much trouble. So pleased we found him!
