Personal Description:

Guitar (Acoustic, Electric, Classical), Bass Guitar and Ukulele Teacher. All aspects of music practice can be covered as well as instrumental skills e.g. music tech, performance, composition, business.

Full-time guitar and bass teacher working for music services and independently in local schools well as delivering private tuition.

Private lessons take place at my fully equipped teaching rooms in central Bristol and Long Ashton.

A bass guitar specialist with many years experience of playing in bands locally and nationally.

Also experienced in working with GCSE/A Level/University music students on their music projects for school.

I am committed to my professional development and am currently in my final year of an Open University Degree including modules in music composition and music technology.

Current DBS/CRB certificate provided on request.

Block booking discounts available - 6 lessons @ £80 (13.50 per lesson)

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching and mentoring people of all ages in private lessons with their guitar, bass and ukulele playing for around 8 years, and a visiting music teacher in over 20 primary and secondary schools for around 6 years.

Tutoring Approach:

I encourage and assist students to find their own way with music, and am eager to provide opportunities for performances to make learning relevant and provide achievable goals.

Students can choose to follow the grading system and gain nationally recognised qualifications, or learn the music that they want to play - or a combination of both. I am an easy-going teacher with a good sense of humour but I have high expectations of my students. I aim to make lessons fun, but also full of quality learning. I am also eager to help students with their practice and can be contacted via email with any questions or problems.
