All my pupils benefit from a patient and relaxed teaching style with a personalised approach to tuition.

I offer an engaging and encouraging teaching environment that inspires pupils development
and enjoyment on their chosen instrument.

I believe learning should be enjoyable and that lessons should reflect the students goals.

I teach a syllabus customised to each students individual needs, combining a mix of practical and theory exercises to help develop well rounded playing skills and a sound knowledge of music theory.

In addition to my own syllabus I also teach RGT, Rockschool and Trinity Guildhall grades and diplomas.
I have a 100% pass rate for pupils taking grades.

Lessons are interactive using high quality backing tracks and drum loops making learning more enjoyable and allowing pupils to hear how they are progressing.
Students also receive CD’s, tablature and syllabus sheets at each lesson.

Whether learning for fun or for academic purposes I offer excellent results for all ages and skill levels.

Lessons cover a wide range of topics.

It really depends on the child but I would suggest a minimum age of 5 or 6. As for a maximum age there isn’t one!

It’s not necessary to have your own guitar or bass for lessons as I can provide instruments to play but I would recommend students have their own guitar or bass so they can play at home as practice will greatly improve progress.

No at all. It’s really personal preference as to which you want to play and I have students that have switched from acoustic to electric and vice versa.

Not at all. Some people like to take grades as it gives them a goal to work towards but it’s entirely up to the student.

I am working on introducing that very soon, I’ll update the site as soon as it’s in place.
