Having moved to London aged 17 to pursue a career as a musician I have since been working successfully as a session guitarist, songwriter and guitar teacher.

I am extremely committed to making sure my pupils find their music lessons exciting and inspiring as I firmly believe that when this is achieved it results in progression. I also believe that weaknesses are not inherent and that with the correct teaching approach and student attitude any individual can achieve their goals.

I have four years experience of teaching the electric guitar, the acoustic guitar and the bass guitar to pupils aged nine to adult both as private pupils and as visiting teacher of guitar to various secondary schools. I am able to teach any skill level from complete beginner to advanced levels (beyond grade 8). Lessons are structured to cater for the individual needs and interests of the pupils and can include; music theory, sight reading, aural work, improvisation and performance playing in any contemporary genre. I am CRB checked, have a clean drivers licence and am based in North London.

I have had experience and great success in getting pupils through the Rockschool Grade system and also have experience teaching the Trinity and RGT grade syllabuses. Whether itís being able to play the song youíve always wanted to master, getting to the level where youíre ready to play your first gig or completing your Grade 8 exam I can teach you the skills and knowledge you need to know in an efficient and engaging way.
