Personal Description:

Hello, My name is Simon. Thank you for checking my profile out. I'm happy to hear you are looking to continue on a journey of musical discovery and improvement. A little about myself. I stared learning guitar at the age of 6 when I saw this crazy looking instrument sitting in the corner of my parents bed room. it was a 12-string fender acoustic guitar. It was twice the size of me and had 4 string missing. The only thing I was able reach was the first string, but i didn't care. I could make a sound on it and at the time it was mind blowing for me. A few months later my parents bought me an upgrade to my very own (child friendly sized) guitar and i haven't looked back since. Music has never been just a hobby, something to do in the meantime between work and studies, it has been my life's work and I still study everyday. Never was I told to go and practice, it was more of a fact of telling me to put the instrument down to have dinner or get some homework done. During school I was runner up in the Hertfordshire young musician of the year, after school I went on to study music at the Guitar Institute in London. After graduation I joined the Hertfordshire Music Service and have been teach with them for over 12 years, giving lessons in different schools and music centres around the county. As well as teaching I have a very busy performance scheduled. I have been a performing musician for over 20 year, currently playing and touring in 3 different bands. Over the years I have picked up many more instruments along the way inc. Bass, Piano, Drums, Ukulele and skills in music production, engineering and music management.

Tutoring Experience:

Teaching Guitar, Bass, Ukulele, Song writing, Composition and Music Tech for the Hertfordshire Music Service for 12+ years, privately for 18 years.

Tutoring Approach:

Weather if you are just starting out or have been playing for many years there is always something new to learn. I believe that music will help anyone at any stage of their learning or life in general. I design my lesson around the individual and their needs and desires of learning on their instrument. Learning any instrument is never easy, no matter how much people on stage of TV make it look, they have put in the hours of work, but it is made easier if you doing things in the correct way. Books and YouTube will only teach you so much but do not pinpoint the fine details the make playing that little bit smoother or give you that little bit of extra information that help you join the dots. Music is, expression of sound. Each individual has their own sound within them. I am not looking to make a clone of myself or someone else. I want to bring out the personality of the student through their music and instrument. Make your own road maps and find your own ways making music work for you.
