I have been playing Guitar for over 30 years and teaching since successfully completing my Music degree at Middlesex University London in 2007.

I am fully registered with RGT (Registry of Guitar Tutors) and have been a member since 2007.

I am a accomplished Banjo player and have been playing Clawhammer Banjo for the last 12 years and have been recently learning Bluegrass.

In my time playing guitar I have been a finalist in the ‘Admira International Young Classical Guitarist of The Year’, Played in many bands ranging from cover bands to Jazz Ensembles. I have also played many solo gigs as a finger style guitarist around Wales and London.

Teaching Info

Teaching music has been a real passion of mine and I enjoy watching as my students progress from the beginnings of guitar and banjo to mastering the riff or a song they have always wanted to play.

I make the lessons fun and interesting with always a goal in mind for what the student wants and the feedback i get from students and parents are always positive in my approach to teaching.

I also incorporate all the essential skills that a guitarist or banjo needs to be able to work out by themselves a song they have heard without the music or compose a song that have in there head. Each lesson will always have an element of the essential skills so that you can create your own voice and style.

In each lesson I supply music and tab sheets professionally done using Sibelius Software, exercises to help you achieve your goals quicker and backing tracks so you can practice your lead or improvised solo.
