About Your New
Guitar Lessons Teacher

Experienced guitar teacher ready to take you to the next level.

I am an experienced teacher having taught for over-six years privately as well as teaching violin for a year at a Primary School. I teach both individual and small group lessons and has also lead musical workshops in numerous primary schools for large groups of up to 30 children.

I teach a wide range of genres & enjoy all kinds of music. Everything from genre study to specific songs is available to learn. Essentially, the lessons will go whatever way you wish.

Students of all ages are welcome to take lessons. It is however recommended that students start no younger than 6. Students under 6 tend to struggle with learning the guitar.

I recently completed his undergraduate degree in composition at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance under Sam Hayden, Paul Newland, Stephen Montague, Gwyn Pritchard and viola with Richard Crabtree.

Location of Lessons

My lessons take place at my home studio in Watford in the WD17 3DQ area of Watford.

My place is a great place to learn where you can feel comfortable whilst learning to play the guitar. It is also well connected via public transport. Please email me for more information.
