My Mission

Lessons Tailored To You

I like to make sure every lesson you take is of the highest quality. I teach a wide range of genres & like to make sure I am always open to all genres that you would like to learn on the acoustic and electric guitars.

I currently specialise in teaching teenagers and adults & I have vast experience in doing so. The most important thing when learning the guitar is to enjoy yourself. Because of this, I like to make sure all of my lessons are really enjoyable for all of my students.

My Lessons

High-Quality guitar lessons in a wide variety of genres and styles.

I have had experience performing and teaching guitar in a variety of styles, however I specialise in Folk, Acoustic, Singer/Songwriter, Pop and Rock music. Whatever your tastes, I am sure I can teach you to play your favourite songs on the guitar.

I like to create a plan of lessons that is personalised to each student. I understand no two students learn the same way, so we can create a plan of lessons based on your individual goals and learning needs.


£15 per 1/2 hour
£25 per hour

Lessons are pay-as-you-go, weekly, fortnightly or as suits you.

Beginners & Advanced Students Welcome

I teach students of all ages and abilities to play the guitar from 13+.

Lesson Focus

In The Beginning

Learn how to hold a guitar, and how to create your first sounds.

My Experience as a Teacher

Since graduating from the Folk and Traditional Music Degree at Newcastle in 2010 I have worked as a professional musician as a performer with different ensembles (Birze, Five Men No Dog, Solo) and as a peripatetic guitar teacher, this has greatly influenced my style of teaching.

I have performed all over the UK and Europe and are an exponent of the acoustic finger-style guitar technique as well as other styles.

I am an experienced guitarist who has been achieved a PGCE in Secondary Education Music and have worked as a secondary school music teacher. Previously I also achieved a BMUS in Folk and Traditional Music.

Lessons Focus

Develop Technique

Learn to play chords, scales and your favourite songs.

More About My Lessons

I like to provide a tailored lesson plan for each student based on your individual goals. If you would like to learn your favourite songs, pass grade exams or even perform on stage, I can help you on your musical journey.

I am experienced in teaching strumming, chords, scales and even how to improvise and create melodies with the guitar. I specialise in fingerstyle technique which makes me a very unique musician.

As I am an active performer, I try to apply all this experience and skills during my lessons so my students are able to see how it is relevant to the musical experiences they look for in context.

Teacher Tips

Local Music Tips

Here are a few of my favourite music stores in Hanoi.

Music Shops in Location

Hanoi has a bustling music scene with many things always going on in the area. With this comes a wide selection of music stores. Here are the ones I would recommend.

Hoang Huy Music One of the first stops should always be Hoang Huy Music. They have a wide range of different musical instruments on offer as well as some great selections of sheet music and accessories. You can find then on 46 Hào Nam, Chợ Dừa, Đống Đa, Hà Nội.

GuitarPlus If you are looking for a shop that specialises in guitar sales then your best option would be GuitarPlus Hanoi. This is a great store that specialises in a wide range of acoustic and electric guitars. The staff are always helpful. You can find then on 14b Hào Nam, Chợ Dừa, Đống Đa, Hà Nội.

TYGY Lastly I would recommend TYGY Music Store which always has some great deals on a wide range of different instruments.
