Certificate of Teaching ABRSM
Associate Teaching Diploma London College of Music
Grade Eight Distinction
Instruments: Classical Guitar
Genre/Style(s): Classical
Ability Levels: Beginners to Advanced


I am currently offering Skype or Zoom lessons. In more normal circumstances I offer one to one tuition in my dedicated studio at my home in Newport, Shropshire. I will, however, travel to a studentís home in exceptional circumstances. My students range from age 6 to 88, from total beginner to Diploma level. Many students opt to take formal examinations, 85% passing with either Merit or Distinction. Whilst many benefit from the focus that the exam syllabus provides, I am equally happy to support students in a less formal approach. In all cases I aim to provide a broad musical experience including reading notation, improvisation, playing by ear, basic composition and theory. I am always open to suggestions from students across all genres from Classical through Folk and Pop to Jazz. Given the rather solitary nature of some guitar playing I aim to provide opportunities for duets and, where logistics allow, ensemble playing.
I hope that learning to play the guitar is rewarding in its own right whilst nurturing wider life skills. Technique and knowledge are important but my priority is enjoyment. I aim to replace the traditional dread of practice with the motivation and desire to play!
