I am able to travel and teach outside of the Carrickfergus area for a small additional fee. Group lessons are available at a fee which we can discuss.

I offer guitar, trumpet, low-brass, theory and composition lessons in the Co. Antrim area. I also offer Skype lessons; please enquire about this if it interests you.

I will teach the ABRSM, Trinity/Trinity Rockschool or Guildhall syllabuses for graded examinations - I have a 100% pass rate thus far! (Over 70 entries thus far!)

I am available for masterclasses, ensemble coaching and community ventures.
