My Experience as a Teacher

I am a Darlington based guitar tutor and have played the guitar for over 30 years. I have a wealth of experience in music having gained a BaHons in music from Brunel University and more recently a Level 3 Award in Education and Training (QCF).

I have taught in the school system both in London and the Midlands for the Richmond Music Trust, Richmond Adult College, Arts in Education and privately for my own company DAJ Music Production. I have a passion for teaching guitar to all abilities, to help students across Darlington to develop their guitar playing ability and to give people a fun learning experience.

I've taught students at all levels and helped many advanced players get out of a rut. Please don't ever feel like something isn't achievable because together it is.
