From adult and young adult beginners and players wishing to expand their approach, to professionals learning a new skill or seeking a new direction, I feel I can give something to each student; an approach to learning both the instrument and repertoire, an understanding of theory if wanted (!), or coaching through national exams, including academic and theory exams.

"Andy is a complete legend. Having never picked up a bass guitar, he had me playing live on a West End stage in 'The Commitments' within a year. He makes it stress free and fun, and I couldn't recommend him enough!" Mark Dugdale, who played 'Derek' in the West End Production.

ďAndy patiently got my son through Grade 3 and 4 Trinity Guildhall exams with flying colours!Ē A.B.
