Personal Description:

I am a 27 year old university graduate who wants to spread his love for music and expression to the younger generation to help them understand their place in the wider world.

I have 18 years of playing experience, of which the last 11 have been a focused intent to achieve technical mastery of the electric guitar; my early career was playing classical guitar as a hobby. I am deeply passionate about music due to the immense joy and solace it has brought to my life and I wish to inspire more people to engage with real music and understand its definitive nature in cultures.

Tutoring Experience:

18 months tutelage of a primary school boy acoustic guitar - from complete beginner up to the Preliminary Grade RGT exam.

On-stage ensemble experience - through own project performances (bands) and formal workshops I have learned how to teach on-stage communication, band dynamics, songwriting in ensembles, and communication with industry professionals.

My BA Honours included a music teaching module.

Informal lessons to friends and family.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to music tuition leans heavily on my own musical journey and so can best be described as a mixture of inspiration, self-empowerment, focus and dedication. I want to make guitar playing accessible for all ages, genders, backgrounds and life stories.

I aim to teach the fundamentals of electric and acoustic guitar to build solid foundations that can be taken in all directions, genres and styles. I include the role of the guitar in ensemble settings and the importance of music vocabulary and theory.

I want to take experienced players to the next level by exploring harmonic arrangements, improving aural skills and effective practice scheduling.

From my professional and personal career I am familiar with differentiated learning styles (Kolb) so I am confident I can successfully teach a wide range of students and abilities.
