My Mission

Expereinced Player & Teacher

Many teachers put a lot of time into technique and little effort into making music which can be uninspiring to the student. Using language as an analogy, this is similar to focusing on grammar and neglecting sharing ideas.

I don’t know many musicians who were inspired to pick up an instrument because they were moved by technique. Whilst technique is important and is something I teach, I aim to balance topics to keep the student engaged and excited.

More About My Lessons

My teaching ethos; “Teach students to speak the language of music through imitating, assimilating and innovating” The phrase seems cliche however I believe that music is a language. Everyone has a unique voice and something to say.

In my early years of learning the instrument, I was proficient at copying others, however, I struggled to be creative and take initiative and think for myself. This is similar to someone who can regurgitate/imitate a phrase in a conversation (like a parrot) but has no ability to express their own opinion and think for themselves.

My goal as a teacher is to help the student imitate other musicians, assimilate their ideas, and finally innovate to find their unique voice. I let the student guide the lesson and study what excites them. I know too many students who gave up their instrument because they were forced to learn something which didn’t interest them.
