Biography

I have played Guitar and Bass since i was 13 years old, and have played in a number of different Blues & Rock bands over the years. I have taught Bass Guitar & Guitar since 2002. I have reached Advanced Grade 8, with the London College of Music & Rockschool.

From my own experiences with various teachers, as well as wasting money on a selection of teaching books and videos, i have put together a teaching program that i feel gets students performance and knowledge off to the best start.

I work at the students pace, and am open to any suggestions along the way, for example if someone wanted to learn a specific Bass line or Guitar part to a song.

I keep lessons fun and relaxed, but also focus on the theory side of playing (which is vital to have some knowledge of, if you are to develop as a player.) However, if a student wanted to focus on playing and performing only, then that is fine too. It is after all, your lesson.

I cover a lot of different subjects with Bass Guitar & Guitar, of which some are listed here...

Scales
Arpeggios
Chords
Creating Bass lines
Playing with a drummer, and other musicians (keeping time)
Key Signatures
Time Signatures
Modes
Improvising/Soloing
Fretless playing
5 String Playing
Slap
Tapping

As i actively play in a couple of live bands, i am also able to share my experiences of playing in a band situation, writing songs, recording, and performing live.
