Beginners to Advanced
I am a professional musician and an experienced guitar tutor based in London and have played guitar for over ten years. My speciality is in acoustic guitar, especially fingerpicking, though I teach and play many styles, as you'll hear from my SoundCloud portfolio below. I always aim to tailor lessons to my students' interests and musical tastes. I additionally can offer songwriting mentoring sessions, please do get in touch to ask about these.
In my lessons, I take great pride in particularly honing in on general musicianship skills - the subtle abilities to control dynamics, emphasis and articulation, that sets a great guitarist apart from the rest. In my lessons, I focus on these areas, as well as the usual areas of technique, expanding repertoire, tone production, rhythm and, fundamentally, the skills to enable you to continue learning independently.
If you are looking to take grade exams, please let me know and we can discuss which specification might be best for you or your child. I have had a 100% pass rate for grades!
Please listen to samples of my guitar playing here. You'll see that it spans many genres from Americana to folk to indie.
