Personal Description:

I am a very experienced teacher of Guitar, Bass Guitar and Banjo having worked in this field for nearly 50 years. I am still working as a professional musician when work is available and have taught in schools and colleges from beginner up to degree level and with all ages. I love what I do and try to communicate my own enthusiasm for music to all my students. I am fully skilled in music reading and in the theory of music which I have taught at high level and for which I have the same infectious enthusiasm.

Tutoring Experience:

Ages taught from 8 to 70+. I have had guitar students deriving benefit from my skills in schools, colleges, in private tuition and, for a while, in my own Music School. Recognising that people come to music with varied requirements and ambitions I teach a range of different styles of music but try to keep a core value of teaching people to play the instrument, rather than a series of tunes or tricks, enabling them to take on all different styles as their awareness of the potential of the instrument grows. I have always retained the ability to adapt to the interests of the student in order to maintain motivation.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is student centred to keep the interest and enthusiasm alive but, throughout, I am careful always to establish sound technique to protect the student's playing future. You never know when you have a future professional in your care - there have been quite a few over the years - and I am careful to develop good technical habits right from the start.
