Personal Description:

I remember what it felt like to be a beginner music student before being a full-time music teacher in Swindon, starting at the beginning for the first time and trying to figure out the chords to a simple tune. I will have you strumming, singing and tapping away in no time and getting great satisfaction from your instrument.

I am a professional musician and have a Bachelor of Arts Honours Degree in Contemporary Music and Performance from the Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford. I have been performing professionally for over 20 years and have been teaching for the past 17 years to hundreds of students.

Musical Instruments Taught:
GUITAR – (ELECTRIC, ACOUSTIC, DOBRO OR CLASSICAL)
DRUMS
BASS
PIANO
SINGING
UKULELE
BANJO
MANDOLIN
FIDDLE
MUSIC THEORY
RECORDING AND PRODUCTION

I am a member of the worldwide Musicians Union and have full public liability and insurance for all lessons taught.

I am fully CRB/DBS check and fully qualified and accredited with Grade 8 with distinction on my instrument.

Tutoring Experience:

Having taught privately over many years, I have also taught music lessons in Swindon peripatetically across all levels and age ranges from University level at the Academy of Music and Sound Swindon for the BTEC, HNC and HND classes, at an A-level standard to the students at New College with advanced music lessons, at secondary school level for the highly acclaimed music department at Warneford School in Highworth via the Swindon Music Co-Operative and for the young kids at primary school age in Robert Le Kyng.

Tutoring Approach:

Covering all styles (acoustic and electric), exam boards (ABRSM, RGT, Trinity, Rockschool with 100% pass rate), genres (blues, pop, rock, classical, jazz, country, funk, Motown, disco, metal, prog, Irish, bluegrass), ages (above 6, including many adults and retired people). and ability (beginner, intermediate, advanced).

I tailor my music lessons to individual people like you, with one-to-one private tuition, helping you to learn through the songs and styles of music that you are passionate about. While I think that music theory is a great basis for starting to understand playing any instrument, (it’s not what you fall in love with at a concert or on the radio.) I would never push you through it for the sake of it, as our lessons are really driven by you, the student and what you want to achieve!
