Tutoring Experience:

Been teaching guitar privately for more than 10 years, with experience working in Primary & Secondary Schools and other independent Music Schools.

Tutoring Approach:

Shaping your lessons to suit each individual student. Whether you want to the next Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, John Frusciante or a little bit of each, I can give you the tools to achieve this. Lessons will be fun, challenging and will work towards a forward goal. I will encourage the student to think long term and whether they want to be in a band, write for music magazines, write songs or simply play casually. I will create a plan so they can get these results in a productive and fun way. Lessons are taught in my home studio, which has lots of guitars, recording software (Logic Pro), condenser mice, piano, a big screen, macbook pro and lots of books and music. It is comfortable and a relaxed atmosphere to learn in.
