My Experience as a Teacher

I have been playing the guitar for over 28 years and remain every bit as passionate as I did when I first started. Having originally played in local thrash and metal bands as a teenager, over the years I’ve branched out and learned many different musical styles.

To date, I’ve played in a jazz trio, written music for an award-winning documentary film, played in several indie, blues and rock cover bands as well as playing guitar in a touring function band. I am now ‘Johnny Marr’ in the UK’s top tribute band to The Smiths, ‘The Smiths Ltd’ which I also manage.

I have a friendly, outgoing personality and I’m excited to help you learn to play the guitar songs that you love. Covering all genres, from rock to jazz and much more in between, I can help you achieve your aims on guitar through engaging one to one lessons.

More About My Lessons

As stated before music is my passion and because of this I have experience in teaching every genre you can think of and I realise the importance of learning the music you enjoy. I will always make sure we aim towards learning the music that you love.

The most important thing when learning anything is to enjoy it. Because of this, I will always make sure my lessons are as informative as they are enjoyable to make sure you bring home a wealth of knowledge from every lesson.

As well as a focus on your musical preferences I can also help with guitar theory. Sometimes I find more advanced guitarists may have their playing technique down well but their theory may be a little bit behind. I will always make sure we have a balance of Song work, Theory and exercises to make you progress in the best way possible.
