NOTE: Due to the coronavirus situation, I am teaching all of my lessons online using services like Skype. I have been lucky to retain nearly all my students (and gain a few back who had moved away!) and teaching via video chat works very well.


I am a mobile teaching service: I drive to you! (Cheltenham and Gloucester immediate area.)

I teach holistic skills, on songwriting, recording, and actually performing in the real world. I value students playing along with the teacher, so they can impart their rhythmic feel which can be stale if a student only ever plays from a book.

I focus on what a student actually wants to do and focus on specifically getting them to that place, whether thats: just to play their favourite songs; be a weekend warrior playing pubs and open mics, to wanting to be the greatest player in the world; I can tailor the lessons to fit any goal and any level of ambition.

I teach:

Guitar lessons: Beginner -> Advanced
Songwriting lessons: Beginner -> Advanced
Drum Lessons: Beginner -> Advanced
Recording lessons: Beginner -> Intermediate
Bass Guitar Lessons: Beginner -> Intermediate

Can also help with: Vocals, Piano, Ukulele.

I bring recording equipment to lessons and provide worksheets and notes to you so its always clear where you are in progress, what you need to work on next, and can easily remember what I taught in the lesson.
