My Mission

Enjoy Learning Bass

My lessons are built around you & focus on making sure my students get the most out of their lessons whilst enjoying them.

I believe that learning to play an instrument is so much more productive when you enjoy what you are learning. During our lessons together we will learn all the essential theory whilst learning the songs that inspire you.

My Lessons

Bass & Double Bass Lessons

I am a freelance double bass and bass guitarist living and working in London. I began playing cello at the age of 6 and picked up the double bass 10 years later and I have been playing bass professionally for the last 5 years.

I believe that enjoyment should come first. I think it's really important that the needs of the student are fully catered for and that the love of their instrument and music should come before anything else.

Lessons are pay-as-you-go, weekly, fortnightly or as suits you.

I have experience in teaching both beginner and advanced students in a wide range of styles on the bass and double bass. I also have experience in teaching both young learners and adults.

My Experience as a Teacher

I have spent many years honing my teaching skills and I will always make sure that the aims of the student are taken into consideration when coming up with a plan for that pupil. I teach a wide range of styles and skills and I think it's really important to keep music education fresh and current.

Music is an ever-evolving medium and I think therefore the teaching of music needs to be kept up to date. I always aim to put a smile on my student's face before the lesson is over! I have 10 years of teaching experience ranging from wider opportunities for teaching in schools to one-to-one private tuition.

I am fully DBS (CRB) checked (recent) and enjoy teaching on a regular basis as part of my career. I have a patient and down to earth personality.

I began playing cello at the age of 6 and picked up the double bass 10 years later and I have been playing bass professionally for the last 5 years. I studied a Bmus in music performance at the Royal Academy of Music and graduated in 2018 with a first-class honours degree.

I have worked with many of the UK's leading orchestras including the Halle, the John Wilson Orchestra and the BBC Philharmonic.

Frequently Asked Questions

My lessons are currently charged at £20 per half hour and £30 per hour for all of my students.

I mostly offer online and mobile lessons at the moment which means you can learn from the comfort of your own home. However, I am also able to teach from my home studio located on Fortess Rd, London, NW5 2HH.

Music should have no ages limits and because of this, I am happy to teach students of all ages.

You dont have to attend every week but for the best results, I would recommend taking weekly lessons.

I need at least 48 hours for a cancellation or else I will have to charge for your scheduled lesson.
