I have played with several acts in Manchester as part of the All About Good Music House Band and am a member of many bands such as Gypsy Jazz band The String Beans, Sobi, Family Ranks, Martin Connner and Charlie Cooper & the CCs. Alongside these bands I also have many years of experience playing with function and Tribute bands such as Under the Covers,The Mojomatics, and Ben: A Tribute to Michael Jackson. During my career I have played many festivals and venues including headlining at Tribfest and Glastonbudget festivals and playing at Mostly Jazz festival, Kendal Calling and O2 Wireless Festival as well touring all over the UK and in Europe.

I have been playing guitar since the age of 9, starting out learning classical guitar before taking up electric guitar at the age of 13 and later bass guitar as well.

I completed a degree in Popular Music and Recording from the University of Salford in 2009 and am now available for work as a soundtrack composer, function/session work and guitar lessons.

Guitar Tuition:

I can offer flexible guitar lessons in a range of styles from Rock, Pop, Funk, RnB and Blues on Electric Guitar to more Folk and Country based, finger picking on Acoustic Guitar. I can also offer:

- Lessons for people seeking to start learning the bass guitar.

- Music theory such as chords, scales, harmonies, rhythms and reading music

-Composition and Arranging

- Preparation and tuition for Guitar Grade Exams

- Experience of working with students of all ages and abilities, from complete beginners to more advanced players

- Lessons are tailored to suit each student so that they get a mixture of key essential skills combined with learning songs and styles that interest them. This could range from strumming along to songs they like right through to learning how to improvise and write their own music.

I teach from my house in central Chorlton or can travel to you if you live in the local area.
