Finlay does private tutoring on acoustic, electric and bass guitar. Lessons take place at the Studio, normally for one hour at a time (though this can be shortened for wee people). Tuition rates are currently £23 per hour paid at the end of each lesson. 

Finlay has been teaching privately for over 15 years. He also tutors for YMI (Scottish Arts Council) as group leader on teenage rock school workshops as well as teaching guitar and group work for the Feis movement for many years.  He also delivers the Sound Engineering courses at Higher and Advanced Higher for Oban High School.
