Hi, my name's Roger,I am a professional musician and educator and have been working professionally for the past 20 years.

Highly qualified, I hold a Master's degree and 1st class honours degree in in music composition, a teaching degree from Warwick University, alongside my guitar and theory grades. I am also a professional musician, performing most weekends as a guitarist/vocalist or live sound engineer.

I have taught in a variety of contexts, most recently I was Curriculum Manager for music at Bournville College where I oversaw the music education of 60 students, achieving outstanding results. I have also taught at Coventry University, City College Coventry and Sutton Coldfield College and have taught privately for many years.

I believe in modelling my delivering around the goals of the individual. For instance, someone who is approaching lessons as a hobby may want to simply learn a new song each week, whereas someone who is taking their studies more seriously may have an end goal in mind (a graded exam etc), therefore a more structure approach might be more suitable. Whatever your desired outcome, I am confident I will be able to help you achieve!
