Biography

I have always played the guitar from a young age enthusiastically.

At 20 I moved to Liverpool to study modern music performance and production at Paul McCartney's Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts where I began playing additional instruments.

After graduation I moved to Prague, then Barcelona and finally settled in London where I worked as a transfer engineer in the world's most prestigious post-pro audio studios. I also freelanced as a producer for a number of acts including independent bands and some work for major labels.

I returned to Leicester and opened my own recording studio offering rehearsal space and instrumental tuition for local bands and students.

I have taught instrumental skills using my own syllabus and the international rockschool syllabus for 15 years with consistently excellent results with many of my students going on to become professional musicians. I have a 100% pass rate for examinations and 100% acceptance rate for colleges and university places among my students.

Lessons are available to all ages and ability levels, relaxed, informal, easily achievable and most importantly good fun.

Tutoring Experience:

15 years experience working as a professional musician, producer and instrumental tutor.
BA hons degree in music from Paul McCartney's Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts

Tutoring Approach:

All students study the modes of the major scale and develop a simple but effective daily practise regime.
Students benefit from online support and telephone/text support between lessons.
Easily achievable goals and a structured approach will help you to learn to play fluently in the shortest possible time.

Bespoke syllabus along with the internationally recognised Rock School syllabus. Option to study the tunes from the "Hot Rocks" rockschool course and earn an internationally recognised qualification.

Songs like - Red Hot Chilli Peppers "Zephyr Song", Snow Patrol "Chasing Cars" and Bon Jovi "Living On A Prayer" can count towards a Grade 1 certificate.

Songs like - Metallica "Enter Sandman", The Darkness "I Believe In A Thing Called Love", Foo Fighters "Resolve" and AC/DC "Highway to " can count towards a Grade 2 certificate.

Songs like - Kings of Leon "Sex On Fire", Oasis "Cigarettes and Alcohol" and The Raconteurs "Steady as She Goes" can count towards a Grade 3 certificate.

Joe Satriani "Surfing With the Alien", Thin Lizzy "The Boys Are Back in Town", Metallica "Sad But True" and Razorlight "Before I Fall to Pieces" can count towards a Grade 4 or 5 certificate.

The Rock School syllabus is a fun and structured way to learn to play a variety of styles and the Hot Rocks course includes songs from a variety of rock genres. Rock School qualifications are internationally recognised and represent entry requirements for UK colleges and universities.

Along with the option of the Rock School Course, all students learn a simple daily practise routine that will allow you to improvise freely and understand chords and song structures in no time.
