Teacher's Biography:

I teach bluegrass banjo to all levels, from beginner to advanced. My lessons specialise in building an intuitive understanding of the instrument and reaching a level where you can play with other people and in sessions. Bluegrass is a passion of mine and I play in a regularly gigging bluegrass band, as well as organise regular bluegrass jams in the London area.

I've been playing music since I was a child, with experience in piano, trombone, bass, guitar and drumkit before picking up the banjo. I've always loved music, but discovering the banjo was a revelation and I realised that it was the one instrument I was missing! I think that having fun is the most important thing when playing music and I try to reflect that in my lessons.

Music Qualifications / Achievements:

  • I have a grade 5 royal boards certificate for piano and grade 3 guildhall certificate for Trombone, but I stopped taking formal lessons when I was a teenager
  • 6 years of piano lessons and a music GCSE left me with a decent grounding in basic music theory, and I also took several years of banjo lessons when I was first starting out
  • I am mostly self-taught since then, though I regularly attend workshops and seek advice from other players
  • In terms of unofficial achievements, I play in a regularly gigging bluegrass band (The Vanguards) that has achieved radio play of our original compositions on American bluegrass radio stations
