Welcome To Graham's Cyber Guitar School. The place where you can learn to play your Guitar in the comfort of your very own home, regardless of where you live!
The Story of the Cyber Guitar School...
I spent the last 12 years in the U.K. as a full time guitar teacher running my own Guitar School and working in Colleges, teaching over 50 students a week; My experience has seen me teach so many different people from all styles and levels. However, after years of teaching, I decided it was time to make a new change for myself and my family and decided to move from England to beautiful British Columbia, Canada.
Although this was a positive step for my family, it was hard to say goodbye and leave behind all of my students that I had worked with for years, from the basics all the way up to playing in their own bands. Some were more than ready to go out on their own and play by themselves. But what about the others? Where would they find another Guitar Teacher who knew their styles, playing habits and personalities as much as I did?
And so began Graham’s Cyber Guitar School
After making the decision to leave the UK, I heard some success stories of teaching different methods via Skype. Slightly sceptical of embracing this new technology for my teaching practice, I decided to buy a new web cam and ran a few trials. The results were great; I conducted several hour long lessons from Canada with my existing pupils in UK without any interruption. In fact the lessons were, if anything, more effective than being at my studio, as my students seemed to concentrate more and there were less distractions.
So after much success teaching with this technology, I began Graham’s Cyber Guitar School; My pupils could still learn from me the same way as they had done in a face-to-face lesson and all in the comfort of their very own home!
With the geographical boundaries being limitless, I am now able to teach people all over the world!
So if you’re looking for a new way to learn and to see immediate results with a fully qualified professional guitar teacher, why not try a lesson at Graham’s Cyber Guitar School?

Here's what some of Graham's students have said about his tuition methods:
"I've been struggling along without lessons, on and off since I was fourteen years old. Picking up and putting down the instrument over the years, and learning bad habits from muddling my own way through has not had a happy outcome and does not make for progress. I have been taking lessons from Graham for the last six months and I have learned more in that time, and made more progress, and gained more enjoyment from my playing, than through the other frustrating sixteen years combined."
P. Priestley, Newmarket, England
"Graham's lessons have been fun, informative and have always taken me where I want to go in relation to the music and styles I like and want to learn. My bass playing has improved loads, particularly from Graham's versatility as a teacher, being able to help me with all aspects of my playing, across any genre." R. Adams, Cambridge, England
Have a look at a lesson with Graham:
"I began playing guitar around 4 years ago. Due to Graham's tuition methods I have been able to progress my playing to a level where I am now on the edge of starting a band! The guitar workshop sessions or 'rock school' as we like to call them are especially enjoyable. Keep rocking...."
M. Berry, Cambridge, England

About Graham Fraser:
Graham was born in Victoria and raised in Vancouver B.C. Canada. Graham picked up the Guitar for the first time on his 15th birthday after hearing Jimi Hendrix's version of ‘All Along the Watchtower’ on the radio. Possessing a naturally quick musical ear, Graham taught himself to play by wearing out the needle on his record player and by learning note for note Hendrix, SRV and Clapton solos; straight off of the Record or cassette (which was the standard in those days). Then within one year after picking up the guitar, Graham was already playing lead guitar in bands around town. Just a few years later, he then went on to pursue a formal musical education and studied Jazz Theory and Improvisation at the renowned Malaspina University College on Vancouver Island between 92' and 95’.After completing his studies and gaining more experience in back in Vancouver, he packed up and moved to the the UK performing professionally in numerous original and cover bands playing everything from Rockabilly, Blues, Rock, Punk, Country, Funk, Jazz and Avant Guard. Throughout the UK and over Europe, he's clocked hundreds of gigs playing at legendary London Venues such as 12 Bar Club to Dingwall's to Summer Festival stages. He's shared the stages and opened for such acts as Bluegrass ledgends Hayseed Dixie, Madness, Bad Manners, James Taylor Quartet, Glen Matlock from the Sex Pistols, Mick Taylor (Rolling Stones) Old School Punk legends UK Subs ect..
Along with performing and recording in all kinds of combinations on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, Graham has also taught thousands of students from all ages and walks of life since he began playing.
