My Lessons

Begin Your Musical Journey

Above all, I try to make lessons clear and enjoyable. I can help you with learning your favourite songs or pieces accurately, learning the fretboard and even understanding music theory. I can teach you the techniques needed to help you play with more ease and solve timing issues by using backing tracks and loops.

I have found that the structure of Trinity College Rock and Pop books and graded exams are a great structured way to learn, by understanding a variety of styles such as Rock, Pop, Blues, Jazz, World and Folk, alongside scales, theory and ear training, if you are interested Beginner students to advanced, old and young students are all equally welcome.

More About My Lessons

My personal understanding of classical guitar comes directly from some of the greatest classical guitarists in the world today, including Trinity College course leader Graham Devine and Cuban master Ale Arango (Francisco Tarrega Competition winner 2018) along with years of personal study.

Alongside conventional guitar lessons, I offer in-depth tuition in Classical Guitar playing. For classical guitar, my approach is slightly different, I endeavour to facilitate a solid and up to date right and left-hand classical guitar technique, a rich and broad Classical repertoire taking you on a journey through Spain, South America and beyond, also back in time exploring Bach’s beautiful Lute music.

I also offer knowledge of music theory and sight-reading techniques. I show my students composition and how these pieces have been built. My students have an understanding of interpretation and sound quality alongside great marks in Trinity College exams.
