My Experience as a Teacher

A highly respected musician and musical director having toured, performed on television, and recorded with artists such as Louis Tomlinson (One Direction), Ella Eyre, Sigala, Andy Brown (Lawson), Rationale, JC Stewart and so on.

I have also performed on West End shows including American Idiot UK, Marco Polo and filmed tutorial videos for Cirque Du Soleil as well as been called for some of their world tours. I will use my playing experience to help you gain valuable knowledge about performing as well as helping my students gain more confidence in their playing.

More About My Lessons

As I have dedicated my life to music from a very young age I am fluent in many instruments however, I would be able to aid your learning to any standard on VIOLIN, VIOLA, GUITAR, BASS GUITAR, DOUBLE BASS & PIANO. With double bass, violin & viola I received a distinction for my grade 8 exams with ABRSM, and with guitar, bass and piano – grade 8 with Rockschool.

My teaching style is largely based around finding what works best for you. Learning the rules but also the best way for you to apply these! Discovering an instrument can be scary and confusing, but I am here to show you how rewarding the journey can be.

Above all else, I want to make sure my students enjoy learning and because of this I will always tailor the lessons around a direction that you want to learn in.
