Learning any instrument should be a fun and rewarding experience, I am passionate about music and hope to pass this onto all the students I teach.

I have been teaching guitar, bass and ukulele since 2000. Throughout this time, I have worked with several different organisations. These include the Derbyshire City and County Music Partnership, Sheffield Music service, HI Gain Guitar school and Harmony Music school. At present I still work along side the Sheffield Music Service as an accredited teacher. This gives me access to professional development courses as well as an enhanced DBS certificate. A recent observation judged my lessons as outstanding.

Through teaching guitar, I have had the pleasure of seeing many of my students grow into well rounded musicians performing in bands and working in the music industry. Students range from beginner to established players looking to refine their skills. Everyone is welcome, and I teach students from the age of 7 right through to retired people looking for a new challenge.Through teaching guitar, I have been interviewed for the guitar tutor magazine as well as being feature in the Guitar techniques magazine.

Aside from teaching I have worked in many bands over my career playing in venues across the country from theatres to clubs and everything in between. One of my claims to fame is performing in front of both Prince William and Prince Harry.

As well as teaching and gigging, I also work for the London College of music as an examiner. For this I travel around the country conducting exams in Guitar, Bass and Ukulele from the beginner stage right through to diplomas in performance and teaching. This work has not only seen me travel across the U.K but I have also completed 2 exam tours of Australia and New Zealand as well as trips to Greece, Cyprus and Ireland.

Experience

Highlights

I've been playing guitar for the last 13 years now and have worked in different areas of the music industry. I have been lucky enough to make a living out of something I'm really passionate about and have had the opportunity to meet and play with lots of great musicians.

I have worked with a number of different bands through my career ranging from rock, soul, jazz and even celtic. I have also had the pleasure of teaching a number of talented guitarist who have gone onto grade 8 and beyond. Including some that I'm proud to say now have a career in music.

Throughout my career I have gained a lot of different experiences including performing at theatres, clubs, pubs, w.m.c's, holiday parks, festivals, balls, radio. Teaching privately as well as in schools and workshops. Examining in the UK and abroad and work as a session player both live and in the studio.

Some of my highlights have been performing at the Octagon and City Hall with Highway Child, performing at the Library Theatre and Doncaster Pride with The Bowie Contingent and playing the O2 with Acoustic Child as well as performing and being interviewed on BBC Radio Sheffield. Highway Child also recently played a wedding which was attended by both Prince Harry and Prince William.
