Personal Description:

I have over 25 years playing experience in bands, theatre and studio.
I was involved in the Manchester scene in the mid 80's playing drums for bands on the same bill as New Order and The Stone Roses and played extensively throughout the UK.
More recently I wrote and recorded guitar parts for an up and coming female singer/songwriter from the Stoke area.
The latest computer music technology hasn't passed me by as I use Cubase and Reason to compose/record at home.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught drums and guitar for about 10 years both privately and through music schools.
One to one tuition has been my main area of experience although over the last 2 years I have started running workshops where students come together to play in a band format.

Tutoring Approach:

For teaching drums I have used resources such as Dave Hassell's graded course and Rockschool's nationally recognised exam material.
For guitar, again Rockschool offer an excellent graded course combined with LCM's electric guitar course abd various other resources I have found over the years.
Whilst using the structured material above I teach classic rock/pop tracks as well as encouraging students to develop a broader knowledge and appreciation of various musical styles and artists as their proficiency improves.
