Hi! I'm Adrian and thanks for dropping by!
I am from Warrenpoint, Co. Down, N. Ireland.
I am music and guitar fan for as long as I can remember!
I have been playing and teaching guitar combined for nearly 27 years.
I have played guitar in countless bands, venues and genres over many years.
I have taught hundreds of students in person and online from Absolute Beginner to Advanced.
I am thrilled to have been part of their guitar playing journey.
I struggled on my own!
When I started to play guitar there was no online guitar lessons like today and no local private guitar teachers to help me learn how to play.
A guitar was bought for my brother who went to guitar lessons at our local primary school (I was started my musical career as a drummer!!!)
He wasn't really interested in guitar. He was more into sport and football.
However, he attended the lessons - got shown some chords, drew the guitar chord diagrams out on a jotter and brought them home!
He got the teaching at school and I did his practising at home. (I just loved music so much I soaked up as much as I could)
I won't lie to you!
I know what it is like to really want to play an instrument but get frustrated at every turn!
I wanted to give up learning guitar many times in despair fearing I would never play guitar well.
But I persisted!
I found friends who already knew how to play better than me and I asked them to show me guitar parts.
I begged for money off my parents to buy guitar magazines (Remember there was no internet - NOT LIKE NOW ) that would break down guitar parts making it a little easier to work out how to play.
I struggled on a cheap acoustic guitar until my Dad bought me my first electric guitar and amp.
It wasn't very expensive and it wasn't very good but it was an electric guitar!!!
I felt like a rock star!
Why am I telling you all of this?
Well...I so wanted to learn how to play guitar when I was young but had no one to help me.
I was on my own clutching on to a dream of getting better at guitar!
It doesn't have to be that way (that's one of the reasons I do what I do)
I am here to help you!
I want to provide you or your child with the help and the support to make sure you forge a relationship with the guitar and music that lasts a lifetime!
I am so excited you are closer to getting started on a personal life goal as an adult or on behalf of your son or daughter to play guitar.
I have guitar lesson programmes to help everyone - an absolute beginner just starting out; down the road a bit with your guitar playing or needing some killer advanced guitar technique.
I will help you skyrocket your progress on guitar.
Amazing guitar teacher. My daughter started guitar lessons with him when she was 14. She's now in her second year in Queens studying music, and full of confidence. I would truly recommend Adrian Curran Guitar Tutor for lessons whether it's for confidence or progress.

Have been taking lessons for a few months now. Adrian is extremely patient and an excellent teacher. I would highly recommend starting guitar lessons here.
Wee Joseph loves his lessons he's learning so much Adrian is very patient with him. He's coming on so well. Would highly recommend. 5 stars from me thanks Adrian
My private guitar lessons are a 1 to 1 guitar lesson lasting 30 minutes.
I am based in Warrenpoint Town Centre.
I teach guitar in a professional and comfortable guitar studio based in my home.
Government Pandemic regulations may restrict or prevent in-person guitar lessons at this time - please see below
COVID PANDEMIC (2021 MUST READ UPDATE!)
The Covid pandemic has effected all our lives in a huge way but not for my guitar students!
I have been able to Pandemic /Lockdown Proof progress on guitar with my Live, Interactive, Online Guitar Lessons.
As one student recently said to me after a live, interactive, online guitar lesson:
"It's like I'm in the room with you learning guitar"
Professional cameras, cutting edge software and high quality sound enables me to give you a superb guitar lesson wherever you are in the world (and you don't have to even leave your home).
The pandemic may restrict us in other areas of life but it won't stop us from safely and soundly progressing with our guitar playing journey (you can see a video of the Live, Interactive, Online Guitar Lessons below)
While you are attending private tuition, you will have access to my Online Guitar Base were you will get access to online video lessons, tips and support.
