My Mission

Lessons from an Experienced Teacher

I am very passionate about music and have played/studied the Bass, Electric and Acoustic guitars for a long time. I currently have a Grade 8 in classical guitar playing and these skills have proven very useful in allowing me to provide detailed, thorough and informative lessons.

I have previously worked with a local charity 'The Plymouth Music Zone' which specializes in offering musical education as a form of therapy to students of all age ranges. I am currently a fourth year student studying Music and Philosophy at the University of Southampton, specifically studying Performance and Composition.

My Lessons

Relaxed and Informative Lessons

I pride myself on offering the highest quality bass lessons possible. I always tailor my lesson plans to match that specific student as I understand we all have different tastes and different goals when it comes to learning an instrument and as such I will adapt the lessons to suit this accordingly!

With the skills that I have developed through studying and performing the bass guitar for many years, I enjoy passing these skills on to others and helping to share that passion. Together we will find songs that you enjoy to play and we will study these, to ensure progress is always made and that you get the reward of the song itself at the end.


£12.50 per 1/2 hour
£25 per hour

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

I also teach in a wide variety of styles and genres such as Classical, Spanish, Jazz, Funk, Folk, Rock.

My Experience as a Teacher

I have performed and taught the bass guitar for many years and have now worked with students of all ages from all walks of life. My time spent studying and teaching the guitar has allowed me to grow massively as a musician and broaden my own skills and abilities which I am now in a position to pass on to you.

Whilst studying for my degree in Music I actually spent a year studying abroad at the Charles University of Prague and my time spent here was super beneficial. Along the way I picked up lots of useful skills which now means I teach not only the bass guitar, but Acoustic, Electric, Ukulele, Double Bass and Irish Bouzouki.

I like to ensure that when I teach, the lessons are relaxed and set in a comfortable environment as I find people tend to learn best this way. I have worked with children from ages 6+ and I understand that Children will learn different to Adults and will always adapt my teaching style to ensure the best possible approach is being made.

More About My Lessons

I am currently in my final year of four studying Music and Philosophy at the University of Southampton. I have previous experience volunteering with the charity Plymouth Music Zone, and have already achieved a Grade 8 in Classical guitar and a Grade 5 in Music Theory.

I have been a part of many musical projects over the years but have been fortunate enough to play with Mokono, The Sultans and The Bill Laurence Blueprint Project which were all incredible experiences for me as a musician.

In my lessons I do like to use the skills I have developed from performing and incorporate other elements such as performance techniques, composition tips etc as I feel these are crucial elements in to improving as an overall musician.
