Personal Description:

I relocated back to London from NZ in May 2008 and have been teaching students of all ages for local authorities and privately for many years (both in London and NZ).
Guitar is my main instrument, although I also teach Bass, Piano, Blues Harmonica, Voice, Drums and Songwriting/composition (more details on attached CV).
I graduated in 2012 with a First in Music Composition BA Hons from Middlesex University. This gave me a much deeper understanding of the evolution, function and composition of music (including recent innovations in technology) that I am now able to draw upon as a teacher.
I have an eclectic cohort of students aged 7 - 57 covering Rockschool syllabus, song based study through to ABRSM and Suzuki Classical repertoire.

Tutoring Experience:

Since 1978, I've played in various bands, including; Marc Almond, The Cleaners from Venus, Seventh Séance and Voice of America touring UK and Europe, managed multimedia productions, a pub theatre, an independent record label/publishing company and various festivals/benefit concerts.
Throughout this time I have taught Guitar, Bass, Drums, Harmonica, Piano and Vocals (to private students and larger groups/classes as a local authority tutor) as well as producing and recording many projects on studio and more recently, digital home recording equipment.

Tutoring Approach:

Classically trained on the violin up to Grade 7 and Music theory Grade 6, in 1978 I began playing Bass and guitar in local bands, writing and composing original songs.
My approach to tuition has largely been based around Blues/Rock improvisation, Rockschool & ABRSM Classical syllabi with a solid theory foundation, although my piano teaching is more closely allied to the Classical Suzuki & ABRSM methods.
I also encourage students to take part in our regular group workshops & student concerts.
Graduating in 2012 with a First Class Honours degree in Music Composition (BA Hons), at Middlesex University, I now have a much greater depth of understanding of the history of music and recent recording and notation software innovations.
