I am a very enthusiast guitar tutor. I love to motivate my students in developing their performance abilities by making them aware of their own voice as performers. I do not want student to copy my own interpretations. Instead, I want them to think creatively in the concept of their own interpretations.

Although I tend to have an influence in their chosen repertoire I am also very flexible. I often support my students to focus in particular genres that they are interested to develop as guitarists.

I have successfully helped students to achieve the following outcomes:

1) Develop and display technical fluency and interpretative skills

2) Prepare and present solo public recitals with confidence

3) Identify and develop strategies for improvement of technical weaknesses

4) Extend knowledge of repertoire and associated technical/ musical requirements

5) Refine interpretive insight and its application to a high level

6) Discuss, and where necessary apply, historically-informed performance styles

7) Discuss performance issues confidently and in an informed manner

8) Perform effectively in an ensemble context (in the composition workshops and, if appropriate, in chamber music groups)

9) Discuss notational and performance issues with composers (in the composition workshops)

10) React positively to constructive criticism

11) Address personal development self-critically


I teach from my home studio in Bedminster.
