Hi. I have been teaching professionally since 2004. Alongside private tuition, I have designed and taught degree courses for individual and group tuition at Southampton Solent University and BIMM Bristol. I teach improvisation to all instrumentalists and I am resident guitar tutor on the LMFL International Jazz Summer School. I have also worked alongside internationally respected guitarist and educator Mike Walker developing the tuition website

I teach intermediate to advanced students. Emphasis is placed on self-expression through solid foundations of rhythm and harmony (including triads, arpeggios, chords, etc.) from which phrasing and narrative can develop. Focus on musical elements such as aural awareness, listening, feel, dynamics and tone are also explored. Each student is encouraged to practice with effective and enjoyable methods that build confidence and independence.
