My Mission

Learn To Play Guitar The Right Way

Many students try to learn too quickly or try to figure things out themselves and they tend to make really bad mistakes near the beginning of their playing journeys. I'm here to make sure you end up on the right path from the beginning, I know what it takes to be a good guitar player and I will always make sure I pass on all of my knowledge to you. I really feel that learning the music you love is a great way to develop as a player and this is something I really push.

Whether you want to learn songs, scales, theory, a couple of chords or pop songs, I will be able to help nurture your playing long this journey. Many people think that guitar is easy to play when in fact it is very time consuming and takes a lot of dedication, but with my lessons, I will make sure you're on the right path that will lead you to your goals over a reasonable time frame.

My Lessons

Attention To Detail

I'm a perfectionist when it comes to music and this has always been reflected in my playing and teaching style. I will always pay close attention to how you play because I feel that developing your own style and playing properly are the key building blocks to making solid progress on the guitar. I can show you what works for me but will also help you develop my techniques into your own because I understand that everyone can be different.

I want you to enjoy playing guitar and this really is my number one goal. Practice is key to learning the guitar but students who enjoy practicing will always make better progress than those who don't. Guitar should be something you enjoy doing, not something you have to force yourself to do. I will always encourage a positive outlook on guitar playing and will always want my students to learn in a direction that they enjoy as well as gaining a good understanding of how music and guitar works.

My Experience as a Teacher

I’m a guitarist and guitar tutor based in North West London. I have been a music teacher for the last 4 years since I graduated. Since then I have taught privately and for organisations such as the Band Project and Your Guitar Academy. My lessons are always built around the styles and genres that you love to listen to.

I’m a graduate of The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance, where I did the BMus course. I have been playing for many years, and have completed tours in Japan, America, Europe and South America.

I’m also an endorsee for JAM Pedals, ACS Custom, Protection Racket and Gamechanger Audio, and as a session player, I perform with people like Phil Manzanera from Roxy Music.

More About My Lessons

I have a great deal of playing experience which I think can help me teach you in a way that can be used in the real world. I can also help students gain more confidence in themselves and their ability with a view to performing and writing music themselves one day. As a guitarist, I have completed tours in Japan, the U.S., Europe and South America, recorded at some of the best-recording facilities in the world ( Metropolis, Toe Rag, 54 Sound) and played with artists like Phil Manzanera (Roxy Music, David Gilmour).

I'm a believer of enjoying what you learn. I will make sure my lessons are always of the highest quality whilst never forgetting to miss out on important details. During our lessons we will learn about everything you need to become a well rounded guitar player. This is everything from theory to soloing, rhythm, picking, accuracy and much more. We will work on the things you want to improve.

Playing guitar is a great skill to develop and has opened so many doors for me in my life. I hope that my lessons can inspire others to do the same. I'm really down to earth and will always listen to what the student wants, I think this is one of the most important things to remember when teaching and learning & it's something I will continue to promote during my lessons.
