Tutoring Experience:

My Teaching duties have included Bimm, Acm The International Guitar Festival and Southampton Solent University and at the renowned music dept at Blandford School Dorset

Tutoring Approach:

I Have Been involved in Higher & Further Education as a teacher since 1997.Prior to that I had been a working professional in the Music Industry. My first professional gig was with Rock Guitarist Steve Hillage (Open, Virgin Records). Since then I’ve recorded, toured or appeared with the following bands/artists: Midge Ure, Paul Weller, The James Taylor Quartet, Galliano London Beat and Omar & Michelle Gayle Chris Farlowe, Maggie Bell, Ian Hunter & Dan Baird (Georgia Satellites) Bernie Marsden (White Snake) Stray Paul Gilbert (Mr. Big) Ashley Slater, Carl Verhayen Guthrie Govern.

This part of my life allowed me to develop a skill set fundamental to surviving in both the industry and life. Since teaching back in 1997 I have delivered several lectures, covered many subjects (Including Music theory, Practice & Performance, Sight-reading, Guitar Techniques, Band workshops Recording techniques and private Tutorials plus a complete understanding of The Electric & Upright Bass and amplification.) and have examined or invigilated many more. At Southampton where am currently employed I have been asked to set the assessments for Degree students in year 1 2 & 3

I have been able to pass all this information down through the years at Bimm where I teach currently & have covered both The Electric & upright Bass To Dip Hi Dip, Degree Students. These lectures also included Upright bass Diploma Sight Reading Studio Musicianship Performance Styles Bass Techniques technical Development & Essential Styles.

At The Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford Surrey, (where I worked for 10 years) I taught various subjects including song craft (a hybrid of The Theory & song writing) to cross discipline groups. During my time at Access to Music at West Herts. & London. My teaching duties included weekly Lectures, producing schemes of work for course modules and being part of the exam process
