I am a very stylistically aware bass player and can teach most styles of music. My teaching also includes sight reading theory and ear training.

I have been playing the electric bass for 8 years and began studying under the eye of professional bass player, Herbie Flowers. I then went on to study at the academy of contemporary music where i studied there for 4 years with a panel of bass teachers such as Paul Geary and Nik Preston. I am now a semi professional bass player and am part of NYJO (National Youth Jazz Orchestra) and lead my own jazz ensembles aswell as performing in an orginals band names John Bull & The Bandits (Rhythm & Blues)
