Personal Description:

I am an experienced mandolinist and multi-instrumentalist with an eclectic musical background. I studied mandolin and guitar at Newcastle University for four years, graduating with First Class Honours.

I currently performs with The Shackleton Trio, bluegrass and old time duo Clark and Zuppardi, and am one of the Two Nicks with melodeon player Nick Wiseman-Ellis. I also performs alongside BBC Folk Award nominees Dan Walsh and Ciaran Algar in the Dan Walsh Trio. Previous experience includes tutoring at Elmfield School’s Folk Week in Stourbridge, adjudicating at the annual St Andrew's Music Festival, and teaching workshops on mandolin, guitar and banjo to individuals and larger groups.

Tutoring Experience:

I have experience teaching students from a range of backgrounds, both individually and in group workshops. I have given mandolin lessons on numerous occasions to students at Newcastle University, as part of the Silvers music programme at the Sage Gateshead, at schools across the country, and privately.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm happy to teach players of any level from beginners to advanced. I can focus on tune playing, accompaniment and all aspects of technique. My emphasis in learning any instrument is listening to, understanding and enjoying the music made on the instrument. Training a students musical ear and ability to understand what they hear is a primary focus in my lessons, with limited aid of tablature and sheet music to start off with. Once this has been achieved I am happy to assist with reading music on the mandolin alongside the individual direction of any student's playing.
