B-tech National Diploma
Instruments: Guitar
Genre/Style(s): Folk
Ability Levels: Beginners to Advanced


I am a professional musician from Shrewsbury. I tour extensively in the European and the UK acoustic scenes. I perform original and traditional music styles with voice and acoustic guitar, as a solo and in bands. I enjoy teaching students of all levels and ages (youngest being 5). I adapt my lessons to suit the needs of each individual. I teach basic chords, finger picking and strumming patterns for beginners through to advanced techniques in lead and rhythm. I make sure my younger students find learning the guitar fun and accessible. My areas of expertise are rhythm, finger style and lead guitar. I am a well experienced accompanist and can teach the correct approach to playing while singing and techniques for backing up the voice and other instruments. My ability to play and teach the guitar has been learnt and acquired through teaching experience (private lessons, schools and workshops over the past 10 years) and my touring as a professional musician. I am able to convey the feel and mood of the music I teach as well as the technical aspect, which makes my lessons as enjoyable as they are informative. I have had a studio office log cabin built at my home for teaching and recording purposes. Students are able to enjoy an uninterrupted professional learning experience in a relaxed environment.
