I'm Derek Hasted MA (Cantab) DipABRSM.
I'm a qualified guitar teacher; I'm Enhanced CRB checked.

I have over 25 years' experience in teaching and performing, and I'm a member of several professional bodies. I write for Classical Guitar Magazine, and I have over 75 pieces of music in print; I have been commissioned to write pieces for Associated Board and the European Guitar Teachers' Association. I run the Hampshire Guitar Orchestra and the Farlington Guitar Workshop and I teach one-to-one and group lessons.

I am a full-time guitar teacher and I bring a relaxed and patient approach to all my lessons. I don't teach off the cuff, I prepare every lesson to suit you, and the pace at which you want to learn.

My lessons are charged at the Incorporated Society of Musicians rates, and I offer a worthwhile discount to those who prepay for a whole term.

My evening lessons are often pretty much fully booked, so I particularly welcome senior citizens and those on flexitime or shift patterns who want day-time lessons. I have vacancies on Friday afternoons and lunchtimes at the date I prepared this page.

Come for a trial lesson - no fee at all - and I'll show you how I will teach you classical guitar.


Aimed at: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.


I offer 45-minute lessons weekly, or hour-long lessons fortnightly, payable termly in advance. Your first lesson is free - no commitment, just come and see how you get on.
I have a structured syllabus for complete beginners and I have some unique opportunities for you to progress in solo and ensemble guitar.
