I have been a bassist for over 25 years and a professional bassist for 15.

I actively play a variety of styles specialising in the following:

Jazz, soul, reggae/ska, pop, folk, acoustic singer songwriter, funk, latin/afro cuban, brazilian and various groove based genres.

I am very capable of teaching other styles and encourage developing good aural perception, improvisation and reading music side by side to create a well rounded musician, being adept to any musical situation and giving the greatest opportunity to gain employment as a musician.

The majority of my students tend to be intermediate players looking for further development and to have a broader base to work from. But I will teach first time beginners to advanced players who really want to take their playing to the next level.

Please visit my website to see my playing in action on both fretted and my specialist instrument, a fretless acoustic bass.!music/c10tw

Including videos with 2013 'The Voice' Finalist - Leah McFall.

Recent festivals include the Coventry Godiva Festival, London, Cheltenham and Coventry Jazz Festivals.

I prefer my students come to me for their lesson.
I also offer Skype lessons for students further afield.

I am a proud endorser of Roland instruments, D'Addario/Planet Waves strings and accessories and Anaconda Basses.
