Personal Description:

born & educated in Liverpool; a self taught artist & musician, currently lives & works in Widnes, Cheshire with his wife Irene & their 2 sons… for many years I worked in social services with people with learning disabilities; part of the time, before moving into management, developing means of enabling them to actively participate in music making, instrumental improvisation, etc

I am lucky in that my artwork, predominantly music oriented, has been exhibited all over Cheshire, North Wales, the Midlands & the North West of England

and my interest in portraying musicians is paralleled by an enthusiasm for making music - a multi-instrumentalist & registered guitar tutor… Involved in various acoustic projects with violinist, vocalists and other guiitarists.
I was a member of highly regarded Special Crew, a Midlands based folk rock dance band and am a founder member of now defunct but respected Widnes based Celtic folk rock band GogMAgoG as well as equally popular power rock covers trio 'slaughterhouse'

“… doing what you love and loving what you do is the spark that fires the engine of your life and fills it with meaning… ”

Tutoring Experience:

25 years in various groups/bands as lead/rhythm guitarist… presenting music workshops… establishing and presenting music workshops for people with special needs… presenting guitar tuition evening classes at Riverside College, Halton… over 10 years presenting home based guitar lessons…

Tutoring Approach:

home based one-to-one or small group guitar lessons for all ages… lessons tailored & suited to student requirements… guitars available… relaxed, patient & friendlly atmosphere…
