My Experience as a Teacher

Having been surrounded by Folk music my whole life, I always found music to be an internal part of my everyday life and found the creation of something so profound purely out of emotion and feeling an absolutely magical idea.

When I started to delve deeply into Rock music, my attitude became stronger as I saw an opportunity for anyone who was interested and dedicated in that ideal of creativity and imagination. I first picked up the bass at the age of fourteen and began playing the guitar later at sixteen.

However, like most beginner musicians, I found it difficult to get my bearings at the start and with the wealth of information available. It could be overwhelming at times. Doing music lessons from the age of sixteen really developed my skills not just as a guitarist and bassist, but as a musician overall. Once I began to understand why musical ideas sound and work the way they do, this unlocked a greater level of creativity and appreciation of my instruments. This nurtured my confidence to an amazing level which encouraged me to play with and seek out other like-minded musicians who shared the same passion and dedication to the world of music. Ever since, I have always played in bands and wrote songs as a group and by myself, purely out of the enjoyment and the satisfaction that such ventures give to those that take an interest in playing an instrument.

On a social level, when a group of musicians gather and communicate without words, it is a truly special feeling. On a personal level, learning and developing your music skills offers a chance for you to put your experience and story into something tangible and real. It is this creativity and enjoyment that comes from playing I strongly wish to harbour, while also teaching the fundamentals of music that gets musicians going on their journey.

More About My Lessons

My lessons are built around your wants and needs as a student. I understand the importance of knowing that every student has their own musical preferences and tastes. Using this, I will create a lesson plan that integrates the music you enjoy as well as keeping a base level of theory of understanding and all the necessary exercise work to ensure significant progress.

I welcome students of all abilities. I have a wide range of experience teaching beginners and helping them progress to the higher levels of guitar playing. As well as beginners I also have a wealth of experience teaching more advanced guitarists who have found themselves stuck in a rut or want to focus on a specific aspect of playing.

I like to make sure every lesson that you take with me is as informative as it is enjoyable. I will always make a personal lesson plan that suits every student's needs. We will always approach everything in a stress-free and fun way whilst also learning all the essential skills.

Aside from the array of online marketplaces where you can buy good quality equipment here are a few of Belfast's leading guitar shops:
