I have 25 years experience as both a professional musician and a music teacher. I have worked in and toured (and recorded) with various bands.
I have worked as the head of a busy music department and am currently working as a Visiting Tutor at Birmingham Conservatoire.

My approach is to teach you the fundamentals of music i.e. harmony, ear training and reading etc. alongside bass techniques and fretboard knowledge.

Your first half-hour lesson would be used to discuss your aims and workout the most beneficial course of study. This initial half-hour is free of charge.

I have a current CRB check
