I'm a professional musician based in London, I've been playing and performing music for over 16 years.

I have a wealth of knowledge in recording, performing and touring within numerous musical environments from orchestras to touring bands throughout the UK & Europe.

I've been mentored and studied under some inspiring musicians and creatives such as;

Richard Strange (The Doctors of Madness)

Drums - Chuck Sabo (Elton John, Brian Eno, Tom Jones, Natalie Imbruglia)

Drums - Mark Roberts (D:Ream)

Percussion - Fergus Gerrand (Duran Duran, Robert Plant, Whitesnake, Madonna, Sting, Katie Melua)


My experience has been that one-to-one personalised tuition in an instrument has a unique value for students because of the ability to resolve the studentsí personal barriers to learning in a way that lays the foundations for a deep and lasting understanding of the subject.


My approach varies depending on the studentís needs and learning style. However my teaching philosophy is based on encouraging students to think for themselves, using real-world examples wherever possible.

Depending on the student's goals, ability and understanding I usually start from a base that utilises their personal musical interests and move gradually towards more complex areas which include technique, independence and creativity as their confidence builds.

I use questions and examples to check understanding and progression continually. I donít lecture to students or ask them to memorise things.

I believe passionately in the huge value of tutoring to students and take great satisfaction in seeing my students achieve their full potential.
