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 the NZ Rep for London College of Music and Registry of Guitar Tutor. I organise exams and the first point of contact if you wish to become a LCM guitar tutor or enter yourself or a student for face to face exams.

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

I am a accomplished Banjo player and have been playing Clawhammer Banjo for the last 15 years and have been Teaching Bluegrass the last 5 years.

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 the UK.

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 and Guitar Pro 8. Exercises to help you achieve your goals quicker and backing tracks so you can practice your lead or improvised solo.
