I`ve been playing the guitar for almost 20 years, in that time I`ve covered a variety of styles, gained grade 8 on the electric guitar and currently play live acoustically on a regular basis. I`ve also been through teacher training and have taught a variety of styles and abilities. I tailor my lessons to your needs. Your ability, your preferred style, your end goals. Practicing will become more about enjoying your instrument and enjoying music rather than laborious routines.

How would you describe your teaching style?

I tailor my lessons to individuals, I have a friendly mannerism and like to build rapport with my students. I find that connecting with students and finding a common ground helps move forward. From my own experience growing up with guitar tutors I know that in a 1-1 environment it's very difficult to progress when you don't get along with the person tutoring you. I also try and find music that inspires my students and encourages them to keep practicing and playing.

What qualifications do you have?

Grade 8 Electric Guitar - Merit. Grade 5 Music Theory - Merit BSc Music Technology - 2:1 PGCE in Education and Training - Pass with Outstanding Lesson Observations
