I am an active and working musician and guitar tutor, teaching guitar privately to both children and adults, for over 5 years. In this time I have worked to prepare students for various scenarios such as live performances, recording sessions, and graded exams.
Throughout 2017 I taught guitar and beginner keyboard at Benyon Primary School, and as of February 2018 I have begun teaching in schools throughout Havering for Havering Music School, teaching individuals, small groups, ensembles as well as dedicated music theory lessons.

Outside of my teaching experiences I have worked in a range of bands, performing rock, pop, jazz and soul music in numerous scenarios from traditional live concert venues to session work for showcases and talent scouts. I have also promoted and organised small gigs in London, shadowed numerous sound engineers, and worked for over a year in a local music store. I believe that my desire to diversify my own talents and experiences gives me a very unique and transferable set of skills for both music and teaching.

My teaching style and methods are flexible and adaptive. I teach graded music and theory to those that want/require it, but I also tailor lesson plans to each individual student to ensure that they get the most out of every lesson.

What to expect from me:
- Vast knowledge of Rock, Metal, and Blues Electric guitar
- Knowledge of Scales/Chords/Modes and how to practically apply them.
- Both practical and theoretical knowledge of Jazz and other related styles
- Good acoustic guitar knowledge across various styles
- A lesson scheme tailored to the learner
- In-depth technical knowledge of the instrument
- A personable approach focused on practical and engaging ways to learn

I am available primarily in Romford, Hornchurch, Harold Wood and surrounding areas; but I am able to travel in some circumstances.
