My Mission

Learn Double and Electric Bass

Throughout my time as a musician, I have taken opportunities to perform in many styles from pop and R&B, to classical and jazz. Becoming proficient in both electric and double bass has also allowed me to diversify as an educator, so whatever your preferred style of music, I can guarantee you will learn something exciting and new.

My Lessons

All Ages & Abilities

Since starting teaching in 2015 I have guiding a diverse range of learners, from ages 6 and upwards. Having had professional experience in many different styles as a performer, I have found it extremely rewarding to nurture skills and help students become the players they wish to be.

All skill levels are welcome, from complete beginners to seasoned pros looking to learn something new. One of the many wonders of learning music is that there is always something to discover, and by keeping the ball rolling with my personalised and strategic lesson plans, you will surely pick up a concept or skill that will keep you moving forward.

As a student of music through college and university, I attained several qualifications including a BA in Music from the University of York, as well as a Music A level. Though I am mainly self taught, I am well versed in guiding my own students in graded systems including those of ABRSM, Rockschool and Trinity.

My Experience as a Teacher

I have taught electric and double bass since graduating with a BA in Music, in 2015. During this time, I have guided a great range of learners from those of school age, to senior adults. I am very pleased to say that all age groups have demonstrated excellent progress, and so it is certainly never too late to start learning!

I was fortunate in my own studies, to have been guided by leading experts in the field. Through college and university, I picked up many excellent teaching methods and techniques that I now use in my own lessons which have helped bolster the skills of my students for years.

Playing professionally and around the country for over 15 years, has also greatly informed the material I teach. I fully understand the requirements of bass players in many different musical scenarios, and so my students always benefit from learning skills that can seamlessly translate into real world playing.

More About My Lessons

My lessons are logically laid out and thoughtfully presented. As a musician, efficiency of time is extremely important, particularly when it comes to practice. Therefore, I ensure that my lessons provide clarity and purpose with targets to aim for and methods to use.

Through my years of teaching, I have developed a clear understanding of how students can get their playing from point A to point B. There are certainly no 'one method fits all' approaches however, as learner ages, interests and skill levels are always so diverse. Instrument lessons should reflect this, and so each will be tailored specifically to the individual student in order to ensure them a productive and enjoyable learning process.

Though I like to keep lessons productive and focussed, my teaching style has always been enthusiastic and encouraging to all. Learning any musical instrument should be a fun and exciting endeavour, so I always like to keep spirits high and students comfortable!

Frequently Asked Questions

My lessons cost £17.50 for 30 minutes, and £30 for 60 minutes.

Lessons can either take place at my home teaching space in York, which has proven to be a great learning space for students over the past few years, or at a location of your choosing. For those further afield, I do also offer online lessons through Skype & Zoom.

I teach students of all ages, from 6 upwards. I should note that I have had much success with older beginners, and it is certainly never too late to pick up bass guitar!

You are not required to attend lessons each week, however I do suggest that students leave no more than two weeks between each appointment. This is simply to keep fingers well exercised and knowledge fresh from lesson to lesson.

If you must cancel a lesson, then I completely understand. I must insist however, that students keep to my 48 hour cancellation policy which simply means that should you need to cancel a booked lesson, then you must notify me 48 hours or more prior. For students who have block booked lessons of 5, 10 or 20 as part of a course then the cancellation policy allows on the day cancellations, at least 3 hours before the arranged lesson time.
