Personal Description:

I have taught 5 string banjo for over 20 years and try to ensure each student gets lessons in the specifics they want/require. My priority is to provide tuition for the songs and styles desired by each individual (I work part time as a music transcriber allowing me to literally teach any song you would like to learn!). In addition I offer lessons on the original version of Dueling Banjos - as heard on the soundtrack to the film "Deliverance". It is the only note-for-note transcription of the piece that I know of. I tailor lessons to developing the techniques required for performing the piece.

Since 2002 I have taught privately from my home studio. I have always found it more productive to teach one-to-one as I can spend time with individuals to develop their unique style.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you would like to book a lesson

Tutoring Experience:

Over 20 years experience teaching privately

3+ years teaching at the Institute of Contemporary Music in Kilburn, London.

Tutoring Approach:

I know how difficult, time consuming and frustrating learning an instrument can sometimes be. It is because of this that I have developed a unique teaching method that will result in you being able to play what you want and how you want to play it; in time creating your own style. The aim being to make practice a pleasure!

All levels and styles are welcome.

I would be delighted to hear from you so please do get in touch.
