Personal Description:

I am a friendly, experienced professional musician, live performer, session musician and instrumental tutor. I have studied both undergraduate and masters degrees in recording, performance and composition.

I am an active performer and studio session musician. I regularly play live with function bands for weddings and corporate events, pub and club bands, jazz bands and concert orchestras as well as working as a dep musician (stand in).

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught peripatetic lessons for over 15 years.

I began teaching electric bass, then added double bass, guitar and Latin American percussion as time went on and I gained more experience studying and performing.

I have taught in schools across Cheshire providing guitar, bass and theory lessons in both primary and secondary schools on a one to one and whole class basis as well as running after school clubs.

I have taught private one to one and small group lessons for around 15 years, recently moving to a dedicated teaching/ recording studio on the outskirts of Northwich.

Tutoring Approach:

All of my lessons are designed for each individuals needs and aims on their instrument.

Students are encouraged to use good technique and are given exercises and pieces designed to challenge, inspire and lead to noticeable improvements.

This will sometimes mean learning easier pieces to help you towards your target and may mean playing styles and pieces you may not have considered before.

With this in mind all students are encouraged to listen to as much music, in as many styles as possible!

As ever, practice is essential!


Students of all ages will be given homework and expected to dedicate some time to regular practice.

This will time vary depending upon what your aims are on your chosen instrument. Practice routines will be provided and monitored; more than anything, this will give you a record of how far you have come and what you have achieved.

Above all else, you will be encouraged to love playing your instrument and learning more about music!
