Personal Description:

I'm a professional musician based in London, I've been playing and performing music for over 16 years.

I have a wealth of knowledge in recording, performing and touring within numerous musical environments from orchestras to touring bands throughout the UK & Europe.

I've been mentored and studied under some inspiring musicians and creatives such as;

Richard Strange (The Doctors of Madness)

Drums - Chuck Sabo (Elton John, Brian Eno, Tom Jones, Natalie Imbruglia)

Drums - Mark Roberts (D:Ream)

Percussion - Fergus Gerrand (Duran Duran, Robert Plant, Whitesnake, Madonna, Sting, Katie Melua)

Tutoring Experience:

My experience has been that one-to-one personalised tuition in an instrument has a unique value for students because of the ability to resolve the students’ personal barriers to learning in a way that lays the foundations for a deep and lasting understanding of the subject.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach varies depending on the student’s needs and learning style. However my teaching philosophy is based on encouraging students to think for themselves, using real-world examples wherever possible.

Depending on the student's goals, ability and understanding I usually start from a base that utilises their personal musical interests and move gradually towards more complex areas which include technique, independence and creativity as their confidence builds.

I use questions and examples to check understanding and progression continually. I don’t lecture to students or ask them to memorise things.

I believe passionately in the huge value of tutoring to students and take great satisfaction in seeing my students achieve their full potential.
