Personal Description:

After studying Classical Guitar for about 12 years I began teaching in 1974 and this has been my only occupation continually to the present. I play and teach a number of fretted instruments to various levels with classical guitar my main area. I play in a Guitar Duo for weddings etc.

Tutoring Experience:

I began teaching Classical Guitar in 1974 and have taught continuously since that date. I have coached many pupils through the Grade Exams with various Colleges and pride myself on developing good, friendly relationships with my pupils, some of whom have become lifelong friends.
I have added 5 string Banjo and Mandolin to my range but Classical Guitar is my main interest as it allows good performance over a wide range of genres.

Tutoring Approach:

While I consider development of a good sound technique to be paramount, I feel strongly that the work we do and the music we play should be enjoyable. Knowledge of Music Theory and Harmony are important to quality musical performance, whether before a large audience or just for personal satisfaction. For this reason time will always be spent explaining and developing this skill.
But, most of all, IT SHOULD BE FUN!
