Hi. I have been teaching professionally since 2004. Alongside private tuition I have also been teaching at BIMM Bristol since 2012. I have extensive experience in individual and class tuition, having designed and taught the guitar course on the (BA) Hons Popular Music Performance at Southampton Solent University for seven years from 2007, and as resident guitar tutor on the LMFL International Jazz Summer School.

I teach intermediate to advanced students. Emphasis is placed on self-expression through solid foundations of rhythm and harmony (including triads, arpeggios, chords, etc) from which phrasing and narrative can develop. Each student is encouraged to practice with effective and enjoyable methods that build confidence and independence.

I have also worked alongside internationally respected guitarist and educator Mike Walker developing the tuition website since 2013.
