Professional guitarist having received airplay on BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music, and over 5 million streams on Spotify. Graduated from BIMM Bristol (2017) and educated at Winchester College.
I studied piano at an early age before moving onto the guitar. At secondary school, I participated in classical concerts, as well as performing for the school's Jazz band. Having recently moved to London, I find myself with spare time to teach and hopefully inspire others in the same way I have been.
I have been a guitar tutor since 2014. My beginnings as a guitar tutor was a few years of community service, teaching music to younger children. As a result, I have accumulated various teaching styles/techniques, and will always try my best to teach in whichever way is best suited for each student. My services are there for those who wish to further their guitar skills.
I have been taught by both professional and non-professional music teachers. I find that the traditional way of teaching with vast sheets of music theory is not always the most beneficial practice, especially at the initial stages. There are certain papers which can help enormously, especially when learning the basics. However, more often than not, the best way to progress is simply by watching and replicating others, making mistakes and then learning from them. By learning this way, you start to navigate the guitar yourself rather than it becoming purely academic.
The most important aspect of any tutoring session is to make sure it's fun and productive, making sure the tutee is able to come out of a lesson with the skills he/she wishes to obtain.
