Notes:

Hi there! I'm a professional guitarist, performer and composer with over 12 years playing experience. I enjoy teaching all abilities from advanced players with specialised goals, to absolute beginners. I plan my lessons to suit the student depending on what exactly it is that they want to achieve. The learning process will help students find new goals and ideas for what they want to learn next within music, whether as a casual hobby or a serious career path for them, lessons should always be fun.

Outside of teaching I play and compose in various original groups and professional function bands. Recent gigs with original projects include slots with Tears for Fears, John Etheridge, ABC and Bananarama.

From 2015 to 2018 I studied Jazz performance at Leeds College of Music. During this time I played in many different groups and projects; writing and performing a wide range of genres in addition to jazz, including rock, metal, pop, blues, folk and funk. The experience has enabled me to appreciate and understand how to play and teach a whole variety of music.

In the summer of 2018 I taught instrument and band lessons at Camp Ballibay for the Performing Arts, Pennsylvania, USA (#1 arts camp in North America). Throughout my time there I was working with students of all abilities and learnt to adapt my teaching approach to suit the needs of the individual.
