My Mission

Experienced Bass Teacher

I am a qualified and diverse musician who has been playing bass for over 10 years. Growing up in London has meant that over the years I have worked with musicians from all walks of life. I now feel like I a truly in a position to be able to share the skills I have developed with my students.

I recently completed an undergraduate degree from BIMM London, where I studied Popular Music Performance. The degree encouraged me to explore the limits of bass playing through applying advanced techniques as well as deep learning into music theory, a subject that I always seek to include in my lessons.

My Lessons

High Quality Lessons Provided

My experience as a live performer has helped me develop skills that all performing musicians require in the popular music scene, such as improvisation, playing unknown pieces and locking in with any band. In the lessons I provide I really take pride in covering as much variety of musical topics that I can to help you develop in all aspects of your instrument.

My musical background covers an array of genres, all that I feel confident playing and teaching. I am always happy to tailor an individual student's syllabus to incorporate songs or styles that they love. My knowledge of music theory also means that I will help you grow not only as a bass player, but as musician in general.


£20 per 1/2 hour

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

Beginners & Advanced Students Welcome

I am confident in tailoring my lessons to accommodate students of any skill level or age. My passion as a teacher is to help people improve and grow as a musician, no matter the age or playing ability.

My Experience as a Teacher

Having completed a undergraduate degree from BIMM London means that my knowledge is diverse and useful for modern musicians. I have expertise in performance, technique, theory and technology, all of which can be touched upon in lessons to help develop your niche as a musician.

I have vast experience as a performing musician, playing at well-known and established London venues such as 'Spice of Life', 'The Camden Assembly', 'The O2 Academy Islington' and 'The Shepherd's Bush Empire'. This experience of gigging means that lessons can take a performance psychology approach, or have an emphasis on how to sound good on stage and fit into an ensemble.

Growing up, learning and performing in London has massively encouraged and nurtured me as a musician and I am keen to pass on my knowledge to students of all playing abilities.

More About My Lessons

I am passionate about ensuring the development and growth of my students tailoring each lesson to suit the individual. I will work to highlight your strengths but also hone in on and iron out any weaknesses through my student-focussed teaching approach.

My undergraduate degree helped me to push the limits of bass playing through applying advanced techniques such as slap bass, choral playing and tapping. If accessible to you as a player, I will be sure to pass on my knowledge in executing these with accuracy and musical intent.

I always seek to make my lessons fun but also informative. I will help you learn individual pieces and styles that you love, however i'll also ensure that we work on important aspects that will continuously help your musical development.
