Personal Description:

I teach the following instruments: Acoustic Guitar, Bass Guitar, Classical Guitar, Electric Guitar, Flamenco Guitar, Ukulele and Music Theory.
Bass, Classical and Electric Guitar up to Grade VIII (Rockschool/Trinity).
Ability Levels: Beginners to Advanced.

I studied with several teachers for approx.15 years in total up to grade 8 on classical, electric and bass guitar and have attended several residential courses where I studied with well known players such as David Russell and Juan Martin. I've also attended numerous masterclasses with guitarists such as Steve Vai and Andy James. I'm currently working on the Dip RSL (perf) qualification on electric guitar.

Tutoring Experience:

I have 20 years experience of teaching pupils aged 5 to 80, individually and in classes and have made approximately 330 entries with Rockschool and Trinity boards up to Diploma level on bass guitar.

Tutoring Approach:

I am dedicated to teaching and playing music and I base my tuition on the best aspects of all those I have studied with.
I encourage students to take exams as the fastest way of making progress but my main aim is to make lessons enjoyable!
I have a collection of 33 guitars as well as a substantial music library. I also had drum lessons and took Rockschool grade 5.
I teach from home and don't visit to give lessons at the moment.
I have a DBS (Enhanced) certificate and am a member of the Musicians' Union.
