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.

My Experience as a Teacher

I have been playing in Cambridgeshire bands and teaching guitar and bass professionally since 1994, an intuitively experienced guitarist & bassist and a skilled confident teacher, I have been able to successfully coach literally hundreds of keen & aspiring guitarists and bass players in the last 25 years.

From the age of 7 years, old I always had a love and passion for music and has been playing live and recording with numerous bands since I was 16.

Alongside my private guitar teaching, I remain a very active musician. I currently play bass for the alternative Indie band The Contrast, who are with Steven Van Zandt’s New York City record label WickedCool and Angel Air Records here in the UK, as well as The Expletives – an exciting punk & new wave tribute band.
