Personal Description:

A professional guitarist and songwriter with over 15 years experience. I regularly release music under my own name and can be found on all major streaming sites. I have worked as a session guitarist and bass player for artists in performances throughout London and the UK.

I have taught in schools and privately, and continue to teach with Hackney and Southwark Music services as a part-time tutor.

Additional areas which may interest my learners, and add value to their lessons include,

- A great deal of experience in music production, having written, mixed, and mastered works for myself, other artists, and documentary film-makers using Sibelius and Logic Pro X.

- I hold a degree in Music performance from Leeds University, and currently study Popular Music Masters at Goldsmiths College part time.

- I hold a valid UK DBS check.

Tutoring Experience:

Teaching professionally privately and with two London borough music services, I have a wealth of training and experience so whether you're taking your first steps, or have been playing for a while, my guitar lessons are well suited to take your playing and passion to the next level!

With a degree in Jazz guitar performance and a background in blues/ rock playing, I'm a big believer in following the passion of the student and am well suited to teach styles such as pop, rock, Neo-soul, jazz, hip-hop, soul, funk, and country.

Tutoring Approach:

In my lessons you'll be playing songs immediately. It is my practice and belief the best way to learn is to do, and I have many lesson plans which utilise popular songs to help learn specific techniques, chords, picking, melodic lines, and improvisation. In addition to this I would encourage students to suggest songs they enjoy listening to that we can unpick together in the lesson, and create practice exercises from the music they enjoy listening to.

Lessons are 30, 45, or 60 minutes, and take place in a relaxed home studio in Charlton. Lessons can also be offered online or at the home of the learner with travel costs included.
