My Experience as a Teacher

I am a professional guitarist, teacher, performer and composer with over 13 years playing experience. I enjoy teaching all abilities from advanced players with specialised goals to absolute beginners. I plan my lessons to suit the student depending on what exactly it is that they want to achieve.

The learning process will help students find new goals and ideas for what they want to learn next within the music. Whether it’s learning your favourite songs as a hobby, or preparation for graded exams and a serious career path, lessons should always be fun.

Outside of teaching I play and compose in various original groups and professional function bands. Recent gigs with original projects include slots with Tears for Fears, John Etheridge, ABC and Bananarama.

More About My Lessons

I have most recently worked with Services For Education in Birmingham. Here I taught lessons in guitar, bass and whole class ukulele in multiple schools throughout the week. This work required me to really refine my lessons, planning and build the mental stamina to deliver valuable and appropriate lessons throughout the day.

In the summer of 2018, I taught instrument and band lessons at Camp Ballibay for the Performing Arts, Pennsylvania, USA (#1 arts camp in North America). Throughout my time there I was working with students of all backgrounds and abilities between the age of 8 and 16. I learnt to adapt my teaching approach to suit the needs of the individual.

From 2015 to 2018 I studied Jazz Performance at Leeds College of Music. During this time I played in many different groups and projects; writing and performing a wide range of genres in addition to jazz, including rock, metal, pop, blues, folk and funk. The experience has enabled me to appreciate and understand how to play and teach a whole variety of music.

Music should be for everyone & because of this I offer lessons are all ages.

For the best results, weekly lessons are recommended but you can learn whenever you like & if you prefer less frequent lessons, this can be arranged.
