Personal Description:

I've toured the UK and Europe as the lead guitarist of a metal band signed to a label under Century Media, and was involved in the band's second studio album recording in 2014. I have been playing guitar since I was 12 years old, both classical and electric, though primarily electric now. I've been completely self-taught for 15 years. Recently, to supplement my technique I obtained a Grade 5 in Guitar from Rockschool. Music, rock and metal especially, is my passion, and I still play live with several bands in and around Reading.

Tutoring Experience:

I've taught guitar for many years, starting with my first student in 2007 - someone who had seen me play live in a university venue and approached me for one-to-one lessons. I am fully DBS checked and certified, and have taught all ages from 8 to 48. (If you're confused by the reviews below, I also hold a maths degree and have been teaching maths for just as long… that's my other passion!)

Tutoring Approach:

I gauge the session around you. Our first session would be spent finding out about what YOU want to get out of learning guitar. Did you see someone play and think, "I want to be able to do that"? Is there a specific song that you are just itching to play, because it sounds like magic? Or have you been playing a little longer, have some experience under your belt, but just haven't been able to nail a certain technique - alt picking, sweep picking, hybrid picking, or playing legato? Or are you at a further juncture, ready to put pen to paper - or microphone to amp - and record your music, but it all seems a bit overwhelming?

I can help :) Get in touch and let's chat about what you want to achieve!
