Working out the next or even the first steps of your musical journey can be complicated. Whether you are a beginner or a more advanced bassist, I have 15 years of performing experience as well as a BA in popular music which can help guide you.

Lessons will be tailored to your interests and I will guide you through your development as a bass player. We will look at technique, explore new music, investigate the role of a bassist and study a little bit of music theory to help get you where you want to go.

My Lessons

All Ages & Ability Levels Covered

I welcome students of all abilities, including absolute beginners. My teaching style is centred around the music you want to play. I believe that it is of the upmost importance that you enjoy the learning process and are engaged in learning music you love.

From this I will tailor lessons to incorporate technical, musical and music theory exercises, all of which will be contextualised and explained to give you a clear path of progression with short and long term goals. While I want our lessons to be fun, there is nothing more gratifying as a musician than seeing our improvements and broadening our musical horizons.

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

My Experience as a Teacher

I started playing bass guitar when I was 14 and quickly advanced, studying A level Music and Music Tech, before winning “Best in Rock and Pop” in Milton Keynes Music Service. I was then accepted at Leeds College of Music to study Popular Music. After studying specialising in performance on the Electric Bass and minoring in songwriting, I spent a year working abroad as a professional musician and managing function bands before returning home to work on passion projects.

This musical work culminated in performances on the Glastonbury and Standon Calling Festival BBC Introducing Stages and 02 Academies Oxford and Islington. I have produced multiple tracks which have achieved 30,000 + plays on Spotify, and have co-written a song which has been played on BBC Introducing on Radio 1.

I have experience teaching a range of age groups, from 6 year olds to adults. I have a lot of experience teaching in a group format, however I prefer one to one teaching as it allows me to focus on the specific needs of the student and allows me to adapt my teaching appropriately.

More About My Lessons

Alongside welcoming beginner students, I also teach both intermediate and advanced bassists. At this stage in your learning, it becomes about exploring your musicality and creativity while fine tuning your technique.

I will look to explore new music and concepts with you with the aim of helping you discover and enhance your musical voice. Having studied both performance and audio production to a high level I have a well informed perspective of multiple advanced bass concepts and techniques, from recording in a studio through to writing interesting live arrangements of songs.

For me one of the most liberating elements of music Is being able to create your own music. With this in mind, I will help you translate what you already know into a creative voice and guide you towards new areas of music to help enhance and develop your individual sound.
