Ability Levels: Beginners to Advanced


I have been a professional folk musician for many years, and make a living from teaching as well as from performing and working as a session musician. I am happy to teach at all levels, from beginners to advanced. I take an encouraging and relaxed approach to teaching, and tailor my lessons to suit my students' needs. I teach by ear, and using tablature. I can give you lessons at my home in South Cambridge, or may be able to travel to you (I cover Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, and parts of Essex and Bedfordshire). My rates are competitive.

A bit more about my music credentials: I often perform solo as a multi-instrumentalist and singer, and have appeared at most London folk clubs, the Cambridge Folk Festival and the Green Man Festival. I have also recorded and performed with well-known musicians, such as Tom Paley (of the New Lost City Ramblers) and Kate Lissaeur. Recently, I appeared on Tom Paley's "Moonshine Revue" album, which has received 4-star reviews from the Guardian and the Telegraph, and played live with him on BBC Radio 6 Music. I have won the fiddle and banjo contests at the Gainsborough folk festival, as well as London's "Folk Idol" competition! I also run Cambridge's Portland Folk Club in my spare time.
