I am a dedicated, enthusiastic & friendly professional guitarist with over 17 years experience of teaching guitar & bass including pop, rock, classical & acoustic styles.

Fully qualified with up-to-date DBS certification, I teach pupils of all ages whether purely for enjoyment or preparing for formal qualifications and a career in music.

Lessons can include technique, rhythm, lead-playing, songs, reading (notation, tablature, chord charts etc), improvisation, composition/songwriting, theory, backing tracks, recording or anything else you'd like help with. The amount of theory and how it's approached in lessons can be tailored to your own learning style and I've had many years of experience and success helping students get to grips with just enough to suit their needs and, most importantly, apply it to their playing straight away.

Taking grade exams is entirely optional but, for those keen to do so, I can help prepare for grades in electric, classical, acoustic and bass guitar from those offered by RGT, Trinity/Guildhall, Rockschool, LCM and ABRSM. I have an excellent track record in preparing students for exams with almost all achieving merit or distinction.

As a performer I have vast experience playing in pop/rock/blues/soul/funk bands, classical ensembles, small and large-scale jazz ensembles, solo acoustic guitar, accompanying singers, folk acts, theatre productions...and more! I've found having such a diverse performance background a hugely valuable resource when teaching and can help aspiring performers with everything from the basics of stagecraft to choosing good instrument and equipment sounds and working with other musicians.

Whether you'd like one-to-one tuition or prefer to learn in a group or if you'd like to find out more please don't hesitate to get in touch!


Aimed at: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.
