Personal Description:

As a performer I'm currently active on the northern creative scene having performed and recorded with my own projects such as 'Fluid Puzzle' and 'The Eclectic Band'. I've also worked with some heavyweights of the UK jazz scene including Julian Argüelles, Jamil Sheriff, Tim Giles and Ed Jones.
On the commercial side of things I perform and tour extensively with pop artist Max Restaino having supported names such as Westlife’s Shane Filan, Peter Andre and Tears For Fears.
I've been fortunate enough to study with and learn from some of the country’s best musicians and educators including Tom Rivière and Zoltan Dekany.

Tutoring Experience:

I have several years teaching experience and have taught students of all abilities and ages from 6 to 70 years old.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to instrumental and theory tuition focuses on nurturing a musician’s natural joy and excitement for making music and combines it with the ability to be self-critical and evaluative of their ability. This lays the foundations for developing a healthy and productive practice routine that will never become tedious or boring and retains the initial passion and excitement for music that can easily fade away if not cultivated properly.

Every musician is different and so I don’t believe in the use of a ‘one size fits all’ course for learning music. Regardless of whether you’re a complete beginner or advanced professional, I adapt my tuition depending on the musician’s current level, future goals and musical tastes.

I offer Skype tuition in Bass Guitar, Double Bass, Music Theory and Composition in a variety of styles. Tuition is available to everyone aged 6 upwards, beginner to advanced.
