Based in Leeds- I can travel to you!

As a qualified teacher of music with many years music experience, I have constructed a highly effective and fun way to learn a musical instrument, relating to what each student wants to achieve from a basic to advanced level.

I can teach guitar, bass and ukulele, all to a very high standard.

What I can offer that many do not teach is performance skills both in the studio and on stage. Having worked with various producers and engineers and toured throughout UK and Europe for many years, I have a vast amount of knowledge that can transfer what you practice in your bedroom to real life situations.

As a music producer, composer and arranger, I offer tutoring in this areas should a pupil wish to learn these skills.

Alongside these skills, I also specialise in advanced techniques such as various finger picking styles, right hand tapping, slap style. I can show you how they can be used in a practical format within a wide range of genres from rock and metal to jazz and funk.

Got a performance or theory exam coming up? I can prepare you for any up and coming exams to ensure you get the best grades you can have. All my students have passed with either a distinction or merit.

DBS check provided on request.
