Personal Description:

I am a fully qualified guitar/drum teacher with over 10 years experience, working with educational establishments such as the Stephen Perse Foundation, Hertfordshire College of Music, DEROSA & Playsomething.
After graduating from the Institute of Contemporary Music, I now specialise in delivering a fresh approach to music lessons that inspire and engage the learner.
I have many years of performing experience, and have played at various prestigious venues across the country.
In 2016 I wrote my first book, 'Your First Year on the Guitar', which I give to all of my beginner guitar students when starting lessons with myself.

Tutoring Experience:

I have over 10 years teaching experience delivering lessons to all ages and abilities, from child to adult, absolute beginner to higher education.
As I write this, my most recent students who took their grade exams in the current term all received a distinction.
My learners have gone on to become teachers themselves, win various talent competitions in the local area as well as perform at local prestigious venues & concerts.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim is to get students playing songs they recognise from the offset. My learners receive a well rounded education as a result of studying songs of all styles from the past century. This maximises the enjoyment and engagement factor that is vital to sticking to an instrument. Learners will then start to look at specific teaching that is relevant for their instrument and how it's applied in popular songs. As a result of all of this, my students build an essential understanding on the theory of music without realising it, because it is all taught in the context of their favourite songs.
I offer lessons at my private studio at home, or can drive to the student (price may vary depending on distance).
