Personal Description:

I am a folk musician, having played acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar and mandolin for 40 years, melodeon (english button accordeon) for 30, fiddle for 20 and tenor banjo, ukulele & bass ukulele for 10. I have much experience of folk & acoustic music of various kinds. I have run folk clubs, currently run a monthly acoustic music session, play fiddle, melodeon & piano in in 2 ceilidh bands, am the caller for a 3rd, was the Musical Director of a Quire (vocal, strings & woodwind) for seven years. I run an online diary of folk activities in my area. If guitar or uke is wanted, I can teach you to accompany almost any song, and have a list of over 1,750 I have already done, with words and chords waiting for you - everything from Ed Sheeran to George Formby, The Beatles to Country Music.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been giving music lessons on a paid basis for 10 years, and conducted music workshops at Folk Festivals for many years.

Tutoring Approach:

I do not teach for Grades or music exams. Each pupil is free to progress at his or her own speed. For guitar & uke, the basis of most styles is learning to play chords, although I can teach guitar fingerpicking styles like clawhammer as well, but not classical guitar. For fiddle, mandolin, tenor banjo & melodeon, learning to read music is a good idea to be able to pick more tunes up - I can teach that at the same time if needed, or teach by ear without it. People say that I am enthusiastic about music. Parents are free to sit in the music room or next door. I have successfully taught from 8 year olds to 75 year olds, and many skill levels from complete beginners upwards.
