Personal Description:

I'm delighted to offer students lessons from a fully equipped music studio based in Hove Lagoon where I have a high quality acoustic drum kit, professional amps, basic recording facilities and a PA system for students to make use of during lessons. I'm so excited to now provide these extra services for all students who come to me.

I am a full-time professional musician with a great passion for music, a passion which is only surpassed by my love of teaching.

Performing hundreds of gigs across guitar, drums, bass guitar, keyboards and vocals, has earned me a wealth of musical experience. Developing the technique and ability to play my instruments has enabled me to become a successful, professional musician. Having taught music privately for years, I am adaptable to anything the student wants to learn whether it is technical mastery, musical knowledge or exam preparation.

I am a gigging musician, performing regularly in two bands:

- Iron Tyger (drums). 80s rock function band.
- The Captain's Beard (guitar and vocals). Acoustic folk project.

I have a full DBS certificate (formerly called CRB).
Full PLI (public liability insurance)

Tutoring Experience:

- I have taught guitar, drums and bass privately across East Sussex for the past 10 years.

- Teaching was one of my specialisations during my music degree.

- I teach in schools across Sussex and have worked with various teaching organisations. This has given me a wealth of experience in teaching young children (ages five and older).

- My life is built around teaching and performing. Aside from my private music tuition, I teach English to foreign students and have taken TEFL courses to make me qualified to do this. All teaching skills are transferable and help to make me a better educator no matter what the subject.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm delighted to finally offer a music studio to teach from where drummers can play on an acoustic kit and guitarists can play through professional amps. I have a PA system there and hopefully recording equipment in the coming months.

My approach to teaching music is completely centred around the student.

I devise a curriculum based on what they want to learn. One that will take them in the musical direction they wish to follow whilst at the same time, covering fundamentals and the important aspects of playing the instrument they're learning.

Above all I like the keep the lessons friendly and fun but for those very serious learners, I can give you lots of material to keep you busy in-between lessons.

Having been taught by dozens of different tutors in my life, I have been able to draw upon the best elements of all their different teaching styles and become very adaptable. Whether I'm teaching a child who wants to have fun while they progress or whether I'm teaching a semi-pro who wants to be showered with difficult concepts to really push their playing to the next level, I excel at accommodating the student's wishes.
