My approach to Guitar Teaching....

“I always make an effort to understand what makes a student tick and tailor the lesson for them as an individual. I've heard lots of stories from students that their previous teacher would just give them some tab of something they didn't even like and expect them to learn it. People want to play Guitar for many different reasons and I always choose materials that will appeal to them. Some want to be the guy who can play and sing a few tunes around the campfire for their friends, others want to be the next Van Halen and thrive from learning technically difficult pieces or some just want to get their Grade 8! Overall it's important to me that my lessons are fun and that students progress at a steady pace that is comfortable for them.”

Teaching Experience...

I have been teaching guitar privately for the past 6 years and I am a member of the Registry of Guitar Tutors; teaching electric and acoustic up to grade 8. I also work as a Peripatetic Teacher for Itchen Sixth Form College I also run a Rock School at The Academy of Music and Sound for 10 – 19 year olds where students become part of a band, learn performance skills, record their music and play a gig at the end of each term. I also occasionally do some performance workshops on behalf of Totton College at a secure mental health unit in St Bernards Hospital, Ealing.

Playing Experience...
