I have been playing the guitar professionally for 10 years and have just finished studying at Trinity Laban Conservatoire for a Masters Degree in Jazz performance, where I studied with Mike Outram and Hannes Riepler.
I have extensive performance experience in a range of different styles, having played throughout the UK, Europe, South America and the Caribbean. I will draw on this experience to make sure you build confidence in your playing.
My approach to tuition is based on the needs of my students. I have many ideas and concepts for students who want to take their guitar playing to the next level, whether you are a beginner or at an advanced level.
I offer exam study if this is something that you would like to pursue. I have experience taking students through graded exams (Rockschool and ABRSM), and applying for College/University auditions.
I currently take the majority of my lessons from my home teaching space based on Ashmead Rd, Saint John's, London, SE8 4DY.
This is a great place to learn because it is both a comfortable environment to learn in and very well connected via public transport. My full address will be provided upon booking your first lesson with me.
