Banjo (4 string)
As a teacher, I believe in catering lessons to the student. Whether starting from scratch or developing existing technique, I still work to make lessons fun while helping people improve. I have: given private and group lessons, run projects to help underprivileged children, taught at the Kodaly Institute in Hungary, The Sage Gateshed and taught at many festivals around the world. Having been tutored by a number of talented musicians such as Catriona MacDonald (Blazin’ Fiddles) , Chris Newman and Stuart Hardy. I possess an intricate knowledge of my instruments to compliment an innate talent for passing it on.

Music tutors should inspire. If you don't feel inspired to practice you then I am not doing my job properly! I teach predominantly by ear but provide recordings and notation to material learnt in lessons. I tailor a lot of exercises to help pupils develop quickly in areas they tend to struggle.
