My Mission

Electric & Acoustic Guitar Lessons

The lessons provided cater to students from all different styles and backgrounds covering both the acoustic and electric guitar. Covering a wide span of genres I like to help people improve their skills by teaching them songs they love.

I have been teaching the guitar and performing for years. I like to use this experience to make sure my students really get the most out of their lessons. I will make a lesson plan based upon what your goals are in the near future and make sure we learn in that direction.

My Experience as a Teacher

I started playing guitar at the age of 12 thanks to my dad, listening to guitarists such as Randy Rhoads, Jimi Hendrix, Gary Moore, Eric Johnson, Joe Satriani, etc… In 2009 I moved to London, after winning a scholarship to study at Tech Music School, one of Europe’s leading music college, where he graduated in 2010.

Over the years I have played and toured Europe with a number of different bands and played some of London’s iconic venues, such as 02 Shepherds Bush Empire, 02 Islington, 100 Club, Beck Theatre, Barfly, Underworld.

In London, I have been writing and recording music with rock bands Kill for Eden and Future Shock, and also worked with producer Phil Kinman (Doogie White, Tank, Driven), and Ade Emsley (Iron Maiden, Steve Harris, Voodoo Six), and TOMMY DE CARLO, lead singer of American rockers BOSTON.

More About My Lessons

I have been teaching privately and in music schools for over 10 years, a variety of styles and techniques from beginners to advanced. Whether you are just starting or can already play, I can help you develop a solid practice routine that will target specific areas of playing, but, most importantly, I want you to develop your own voice on the instrument just as I’m always constantly doing.

My lessons are tailored and structured to the individual student, based on their musical tastes, current abilities and songs they would like to learn. I'll ensure that your long term goal is always on the forefront of our minds and select the songs/exercises we work through to help us get towards that goal. Each lesson you will be left with something to work on in between the sessions and will always follow this up in the lessons to follow and check in.

With a wide range of playing and teaching experience, we can also cover in great detail the musical theory side of things, which are skills that can transfer to other instruments outside of the guitar and apply to all music in general! I have a good track record with RGT, Trinity and Rockschool, so if exams and grades are your aim, we can cover those too.

My lessons cater for students of all ages and backgrounds (6+). Some students believe it can be too late to pick up the guitar at older ages, but age has no impact! So no matter if this is your first time as a youngster or a retiree, these lessons will cater for you. I have a lot of experience working with students from all walks of life!

No, the lessons are flexible and can be booked to suit you. Most students tend to go for one hour a week as this tends to yield the most consistent progress and results.
