Personal Description:

I am an instrumental teacher, music producer and composer based in Ilkley, West Yorkshire. I first started my musical career playing guitar at the age of 7 and have been obsessed with all things musical ever since!

I have a 2:1 degree in Popular Music and Music Technology and several years teaching experience both privately at home and within primary and secondary schools across my local area. I have also fronted and played guitar and keyboards for a variety of bands since I was at school, mainly performing my own original material. This has led to touring the UK, Europe, USA and Japan and releasing albums in a variety of countries on, at last count, 21 different record labels! Most recently I was touring as part of a support band to Kaiser Chiefs on their recent UK tour and wrote a Christmas song which won a recent competition in the Guardian newspaper.

Tutoring Experience:

I teach Guitar (electric, acoustic, classical); Bass Guitar, Ukulele and Music Theory privately to a variety of students of all ages and abilities on a one-to-one basis. I have a 100% pass rate in ABRSM, Trinity, Trinity Rock and Pop and Rockschool graded examinations. I also have a large archive collection of songs and riffs of many styles and can transcribe music by ear in the lesson. All of my students receive PDFs of their sheet music and a personalised video to help with their learning.

Discount available when purchasing 6 or more lessons.

Lessons are based in my teaching room at my house in Ben Rhydding, Ilkley. Additionally I can provide lessons via the internet using FaceTime or Skype.

Recording studio, online mixing and songwriting/industry advice also available.

I am fully CRB/DBS checked.

Tutoring Approach:

I am committed to providing high quality tuition with excellent value, personalised to each individual. All ages, abilities and styles. Get in touch for a chat about what you'd like to achieve!
