Practice. Play. Improve.
I try to overcome the barriers of the conventional student-teacher relationship to create an environment that optimises the learning process.
This allows me to provide a unique experience and programme of study that is catered to suit each individual player.
My approach is to help improve musical knowledge and technical ability through practical examples.
I encourage a mindset of personal exploration and self-development to build skills in guitar playing as well as transferable life skills.
Skills such as self-discipline and self-motivation that can be applied to anything, for either aspiring professionals or hobbyist guitar players.
With ten years of experience teaching adults and children, my lessons are highly adaptable to suit all ages and abilities.
Complete beginners, intermediate, and advanced level players are all welcome.
In addition to personalised lessons and learning programmes, I also provide lessons for accredited exams.
These are typical for anyone looking to work towards a formal grade or guitar qualification.
Formal qualifications provide an excellent goal to work towards and an effective means of measuring your progress.
On top of that, they are a great way to enhance a CV, or even contribute towards UCAS points for university applications.
I have an excellent pass rate with all my students who take the exams, most of whom achieve either a merit or distinction award.

This allows instant access to essential facilities such as guitars, amps, and my extensive range of teaching materials.
Here, I also have recording facilities to record students’ performances that they can then share with friends and family.
