My Lessons

Personalised Lessons

Before we start learning, I will always make sure to discuss what your goals are and that together we make a clear pathway to improving them. If you want to learn for fun or have some serious goals you wish to reach, I'm sure we can make sure you're on the right path together.

Above all else I promote practice and I will make sure it's clear to all my students what they should be practicing and what they shouldn't be practicing. I will help you pick up positive playing habits that will help you nurture your playing over a short period of time. I offer lessons for both beginners and I have a track record of helping advanced players fix old habits as well.

Prices:


£20 per 1/2 hour
£30 per hour

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

Beginners & Advanced Students Welcome

Over my time as a teacher, I have had many students approaching me from all levels and backgrounds of playing as well as wanting to learn a wide range of styles. I offer my tuition to both beginners and advanced players alike.

My Experience as a Teacher

After completing my GCSEs I moved on to college to study both BTEC performing arts and BTEC music performance. This was where I had my first experience of performing in a band in local music venues rather than solo. This absolutely solidified my passion for music and performing. I then looked on to continuing my studies at university and looked straight towards London where most of the musical opportunities lie. The knowledge I gained was second to none, not only for my instrument but also for the industry. We had access to state of the art recording studios in which to learn but also to record our own music outside of lectures. I made sure to make the most of this as it was free and I would never have free access to this kind of set-up post-university. I also continued to play in many bands in London, playing consistently most weekends in many venues all across the city. I had the experience of collaborating with other faculties in the university to create things like music videos and to also feature on the uni radio station.

I graduated from the University of Westminster in 2019 with a degree in Commercial Music Performance. Alongside this I have been a member of multiple bands, playing live shows in venues all across London and the UK. I played both my own music and in the bands of other artists to help improve my musicianship. I tried to do as much as possible to involve myself within the scene so I also wrote for music publications and helped promote events. I have also worked behind the scenes within the music industry at SARM Music Bank (rehearsal rooms for world renowned bands) and have a wide and varied knowledge of the technical side due to this (amps, pedals, equipment etc.).

I believe there is no greater feeling than when a student has a eureka moment where they have been working towards an exam or just simply a tricky song to play and they absolutely nail it. I found this when I had my own teacher, we shared at that moment. I am now humbled to be able to share that experience with my own students and pass on a genuine love for all things music.

More About My Lessons

I have always had a huge passion for performing. I started out as a budding actor, singing in school choirs and performances in and out of school. As I got older I established my own music taste and started to explore. The more music I heard the more inspired I became to pick up and instrument myself. I naturally gravitated towards the guitar because of the sound it created and to be totally honesty, it looked cool! I began instrumental lessons in school to learn the basics and once I found my feet I began to go further outside of lessons to really hone in my skills. I am forever grateful to my guitar teacher as without him I may have picked up bad techniques which are extremely hard to ditch. He also introduced me to a world of music I wouldn’t have found otherwise.

I like to make sure my students learn the same way that I did and that I can share my passion for music with all my students. I find that I'm enthusiastic about everything music and this is something that I think my students should try to do as well. We will always work to your strengths and improve any weaknesses you might have.

After graduating from university I began teaching again, working for a company called Rocksteady. Within this role, I taught groups of up to 9 primary school-aged children to play in their very own band. This was mainly focused on fun and social skills as well as improving their ability on their instruments. This also gives me the ability to work with young learners as well.
