Personal Description:

I was an international singer/songwriter before I began teaching full time. I'm a musician with over 20 years experience in performance and composition.

Originally from Cumbria, I moved to York in 2015 to enhance my teaching career and support others in the art of learning a musical instrument.

I'm a member of the Registry of Guitar Tutors (RGT), the Performers Rights Society (PRS), the Ukulele Society of Great Britain and the York Music Hub. I teach guitar, ukulele and piano to beginners and intermediates.

I have released 13 albums and have composed music for independent films, plays, internet chat-shows, gaming podcasts and even books.

My second album was featured in iTunes 'Best of' 2012.

Outside of music, I'm an author of comedy novellas and a professional cartoonist and illustrator.

Tutoring Experience:

I moved to York in November 2015 and set up my teaching practice in January 2017. I teach all ages (6+).

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to make learning an instrument fun. My lessons are informal and relaxed and, once settled, I let the student dictate what lessons consist of. For younger students, I make lessons fun with games I have created such as Strumpluck, Bravura, Jumble Scale, and Chord Battleships. The syllabus is still being taught but it is much more fun and interactive.

I can teach students at home but it will cost extra for this.
