I have been playing various musical instruments since I was 4 years old including the violin, Trumpet, Piano and guitar settling finally on the Bass which I have been playing professionally for 14 years.
My performing life is on the bass guitar. I was the assistant MD and bassist in The Drowned Man (PunchDrunk's latest production). I play in several function outfits from a pop and rock wedding band, to a house band in a comedy club playing jazz and a retro 20s, 30s and 40s rock and roll, ska and Motown band. I also run a jam night weekly in New Cross. I play in 3 original instrumental groups and do a lot of musical theatre and big band gigs as well.

I am willing to travel around Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge and sevenoaks (and other surrounding areas).


Private Music Tutor

I have been teaching privately for 11 years now. I teach Guitar and Bass right from beginners to advanced players. I also teach music theory and take musical workshops (i.e. ensemble workshops and rhythm workshops etc.).

I have also been a visiting lecturer on the Music course at K College for 3 years teaching everything from bass guitar to ensemble workshops to composition.

My approach to teaching is based purely on the individual needs of the pupil. I can give a structured curriculum based around the popular certification of Rockschool exams which gives a very broad introduction to a variety of styles and skills including rock, funk, jazz and reggae; musical theory, scales harmony ear training etc. Or the pupil can have a much more specified curriculum such as theory, improvisation, technique, studying a particular musician or band of their liking etc.
