There are far worse ways to learn your instrument, than performing 6 nights a week on Cruise Ships or in 5 star hotels. I have been lucky enough (and for sure worked hard enough!) to have played on Cruise Ships in the Caribbean, Scandinavia, the Mediterranean and the Canaries and across the Middle East hotel circuit in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Bahrain and Egypt (and the less exotic United Kingdom functions and original circuit).
Before all these shenanigans, I began my professional journey at BIMM, where I obtained my Degree in Professional Musicianship (Huzzah!). There I trained with some of the best in the business and was taught how to be a professional in a very competitive industry.
If all my experience has taught me anything, itís that working in this Industry is so much more than having ripping chops and a voice like Freddie. More than just honing my craft, my experience has taught me that being a professional musician is more about being a friendly/humble/dedicated individual that people WANT to be around and work with. Be good. But be humble.
A good sense of humourÖand showering regularly helps tooÖ
I strive to uphold these qualities, give boundless energy, and actually have fun while Iím doing it.
My biggest strength is my ability to sing and play, which comes in the form of fronting bands and commanding audiences or offering slick harmonies and supporting the talent up front. Second to that, I have a wide and varied playing style that allows me to adapt to most musical situations: funk to rock to jazz to metal; I only draw the line at Vegetarian Pneumatic TripcoreÖ mostly because I honestly donít know what it is Ė hell letís give it a go.
Between functions and session-work I also love imparting skills and music geekery Ė so please contact me for Bass Lessons (Donít worry if you donít live around Sussex (UK), I also offer Skype Lessons). Please have a gander at my Services and feel free to check my Testimonials and CV or contact me Ė Iím always up for a jam, beer, or chat!
Bass Guitar Lessons
I charge an hourly rate of £25 for a one to one bass guitar lesson at my place, and you also get a cup of tea and biscuit, what service!
I can travel to you but I will have to add a fuel and time charge, this is dependant on where you are, this will be negotiated and agreed upon before we begin.
Your first one hour lesson is FREE! (minus travel costs if I am travelling to you), so you can see what Iím like and have to offer you and we will progress from there.
Book and pay for 5 lessons up front and get your next one FREE!
I also offer lessons via Skype or Google Hangouts, these are charged at £20.00 per hour. Block booking offer still applies!
A Musicians Union contract will be signed by both parties to ensure standards are met from myself and the client, to protect us both.
