Welcome to my guitar teaching site. With a library of videos and private lesson exchanges this website gives us the opportunity to work together to keep your playing on track. It is also a place to connect with other students and like minded folks throughout the world. Whether you decide to simply sign up to access the library and work on your own or choose to study directly with me, I offer you my music as a “toolbox” of ideas to further your playing and creativity.

“The new stuff you posted in the master classes about chord melody just blew my mind. You’ve completely awakened me to playing guitar in a whole new way. I just never thought of it in this context before. I feel like a baby that just got a handle on crawling and then realised I could also stand on two legs.”  Nicholas


“What puts American guitar virtuoso Woody Mann so far ahead of the rest is that his lessons are grounded not just in a deep understanding of early blues music, but also in his own superior musicality.” Canberra Times, Australia


“Woody is a master player and teacher. A true gentleman. I’m so glad to have been able to study with him. His deep understanding of the music and how to teach has opened up (finally) my playing in new and exciting ways.”  Charlie


“I just wanted to thank you again. You inspired me to try again at the age of 59 after many previous failures, and so far it’s going really well. With gratitude.”  Jim
