I’m a songwriter and classical guitarist who has written film scores and musicals. My work is available to look at on, and as a teacher I try to encourage students to develop on their own path.

As a performer I specialise in Great American Songbook and Jazz-oriented pop, but I can teach building blocks that will be useful for a variety of styles.

Teaching Info

It’s really up to you what kind of teaching style you prefer: I can teach with lead sheets or chord sheets, or I can teach reading sheet music on the guitar along with classical guitar technique.

Fingerstyle is really my thing, but if you’re into playing with a pick, I can accommodate that too.

Singing and playing guitar at the same time is another area that I could focus on if that’s what you want to learn how to do.
