I'm a highly experienced teacher and award winning electric guitarist based in London, with a friendly and personable approach. I have an MA (distinction) from the Royal Academy of Music (jazz performance and composition) and a BA Hons degree (first class honours) from Leeds College of Music (also jazz performance/composition).

I balance freelance performing with a busy teaching schedule that encompasses both private students and teaching in schools. I am currently the guitar teacher at Eton College where I have taught for the last two years, having spent six years previously within the thriving music department at Bedford School. At both of these institutions and in my private lessons, I've been able to teach a huge variety of pupils, from the strictly-bedroom enthusiast right the way through to music college auditions and professional players. I've guided many of my students through all kinds of music exams, including Trinity College and ABRSM (classical), RGT Acoustic Guitar Performance and Rock School (both electric and acoustic).

While I enjoy teaching a broad range of styles, my speciality is teaching jazz, rock and improvisation. Students commonly come to me with desires to unlock the mysteries of the fretboard (it's a confusing beast at the best of times!) and to achieve greater fluency both technically and theoretically. Step by step, students strengthen their personal connection to the guitar while achieving a greater sense of freedom, control and creativity within their playing. This is particularly relevant to students with an interest in lead guitar playing in contemporary jazz/fusion or rock styles.

I always tailor my approach to the individual needs and desires of the student. The more you can guide me in your own musical interests and aspirations, the more I'll be able to help you achieve your goals. Fundamental to my teaching approach is an energetic, enthusiastic and friendly demeanour and I always strive to create an environment in which you will feel at ease to learn and explore, whatever your aspirations.

My lessons are suitable for enthusiastic students of an intermediate (2 years or more playing experience) to advanced level, aged 13+.

I appreciate that finding the right music teacher is difficult! That's why I offer all students one FREE 45 minute lesson, no strings attached, to see if you think I'd be a good fit for you. Try before you buy!
