Personal Description:

I have for many years led a Celtic music band Moonrakers in Oxford and regularly play acoustic music at various venues in the area. My passion is in all acoustic stringed instruments (guitar, Irish bouzouki, mandolin, ukulele). On each of these I play mainly fingerstyle and blues to accompany singing, but also cover strumming techniques… I don't teach classical guitar styles - the only written music I use is tablature. If you are interested in accompanying yourself for singing, or learning chordal-style playing to accompany other players, look no further!

I also teach Irish whistle and folk singing techniques for those who take up the guitar/ukulele.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught all ages and all abilities for over 20 years. I also teach singing and performance skills to build people's confidence. However, I must stress that I prefer not to teach young children.

Tutoring Approach:

Whatever your ability, I will make a tailored programme to fit you. Usually a lesson would be about an hour. I generally prefer to arrange lessons according to your (and my) availablity, so there is no set "course" of lessons. I will often make a video of the lesson which I can email to you. plus some visual aids (tablature system which is very simple to learn).

With some students I've followed the RGT Guitar course (with examined grades up to Grade 8).
