My Lessons

Guitar Lessons with Students in Mind

I like to create a lesson plan tailored to the student, focused on their individual goals and help them enjoy learning their favourite music while progressing rapidly on the guitar.

I believe everyone should be able to experience the pleasure of playing a musical instrument. This is why I offer lessons to students of all ages and abilities. However I would recommend waiting until age 6 to begin playing the guitar.


£15 per 1/2 hour
£30 per hour

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

My Experience as a Teacher

I am a qualified teacher, having achieved an HNC in Music Performance, and have reached a high aptitude on bass, piano & guitar. I am well known in the Aberdeen jazz scene, having maintained a monthly residency at The Sanddollar Cafe for 7 years, played at The Blue Lamp and The Aberdeen Jazz Festival.

I have been performing and teaching in the Aberdeen area professionally for the past 17 years. I started off teaching bass to my best friend's brother and soon found myself with many guitar and bass pupils around Aberdeen and have been giving private lessons.

I pride myself on being a friendly and patient teacher, I can create a tailored lesson plan to help you achieve your goals in a relaxing and comfortable environment.
