Personal Description:

I trained as a classical player through school gaining a merit at Grade 8 before I left for University. From then on I played semi-professionally with bands until turning full time professional musician in 2009. Some of the people I have worked with include:
Rosie Doonan and The Snapdragons (2008-10 UK Tours/album)
King Creosote (Iona Festival 2014/album)
Jess Morgan (2014 Tour/album)
Gren Bartley (2013-2018 – UK and European Tours/album)
Rachel Ries – (2016 + 17 UK tours)
Michael Chapman (2013 – present UK Tours/albums)
Michael Chapman and BJ Cole (2017 UK Tour)
Bridget St. John (2018 UK Tour)
The Mediaeval Baebes (2018 US Tour)
Bella Gaffney and Polly Bolton (2018 UK gigs)

Tutoring Experience:

I have experience teaching private lessons for beginner to advanced levels, all ages. My work with singer-songwriters and bands means that I have knowledge and understanding of a wide range of styles and techniques, from folk and blues, to jazz and pop, as well as standard classical styles. My training through the ABRSM has also given me the skills to provide accompanying theory lessons.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer to tailor lessons to the individual, to quickly establish what you hope to get out of having lessons, and to make that the aim. Whether that is to help practice scales to pass exams, or to simply just learn a new skill and have some fun, I am open to all approaches. I can teach with out or without music, and can access/create any music that the student wishes to learn.
