I'm enthusiastic about teaching all styles and abilities and would tailor lessons towards what students what to work on or pursue. Sessions working with a band/groups of musicians could also be arranged.

Through my ongoing study with Asaf Sirkis, James Maddren and Gene Calderazzo I've learned valuable lessons I apply to my playing and teaching.

My specialisms are Jazz/improvisatory-based music. In more detail; Big band/large ensembles is a style I have much experience in, having recently played with large ensembles lead by Winston Rollins, Mark Lockhart and Andrea Vicari. Brushes playing is a big part of my sound and I've been honing teaching and playing concepts for some time.

I've also love and have experience playing funk, soul, motown etc.

Please don't hesitate to call or email to discuss anything you have questions about. Happy to do consultation lessons to discuss more in depth with students about the direction they would want to take and find out if they think I'm right for them!

I can travel to students for lessons within a reasonable distance.
