My Mission

Experienced Teacher

I have played the guitar for around the last 10 years. In this time I have performed and composed music not only in the UK but internationally too. I have graduated with a Degree in music which allows me to provide lessons to the highest standard possible. I maintain this standard regardless of what you'd like to learn during our lessons. I love to teach students of all ability levels.

The lessons which I provide cater to students of all ages. My approach to the lessons will vary depending on the age of the student. Younger students (10+) are absolutely welcome but I tend to recommend shorter lesson times to maintain attention span! I will always make sure the lessons go at a pace and speed that you feel comfortable with and that suits both your age and playing standard.

My Experience as a Teacher

I remember being drawn to that classical guitar in the shop window I was walking past on the daily family walks on our holiday in Spain when I was 9. Thanks to my supportive parents this dream became reality and shortly after I found myself in a room in a conservatory that I would attend weekly for the next 10 years.

My interest in classical guitar grew exponentially, together with my practical skills as I was attending biweekly music theory classes alongside the guitar lessons. I had no idea what the music world had to offer until I discovered Carlos Santana's music at the age of 16. I spent much of my free time practicing the electric guitar trying to sound like my hero by using TABs and my ears. It wasn't long until I found out about the guitar gods such as Steve Vai, Guthrie Govan and Eric Johnson who all had a massive impact on me.

I decided to study guitar at BIMM in Brighton, those next 3 years broadened my musical horizons by allowing me to explore more contemporary genres like funk, disco and blues. I learned how to appreciate the simplicity of certain songs, listening out for how instruments work together and how to play simple things well. All in all, I had a paradigm shift from seeing myself as a guitarist to perceiving myself as a musician.

More About My Lessons

Over the years I have experimented and studied all kinds of music. Around 16 years old I discovered Carlos Santana and was amazed by his style and always wanted to do this myself. Not long after I began studying Steve Vai and other guitar heroes which gave me the wide range of knowledge I have now.

The lessons I provide are catered for any student around 10+ years old. In my experience students younger than this can find it difficult to practice or maintain the attention span for the lessons. I approach my lessons differently dependant on the age of the student as we all learn in different ways.

Over the years my passion for music has only grown stronger. This is something I want to be able to share with others and allow them to experience too. Whatever your current guitar playing position is, don't hesitate to get in touch and together we can work on achieving those dreams!

I can help you to

As a teacher, I like to stay away from “textbook teaching”. This means I can personalise my approach to each student's needs and aspirations. I understand that everyone has different goals, approaches and strengths and I aim to tailor my methods to that. My high level of understanding, attention to detail and varied experience, have led to my students making excellent progress. For more information, feel free to send over any questions you might have.
