My Mission

Lessons Tailored To You

I grew up listening to my dad’s eclectic collection of music containing anything from Black Sabbath, George Duke, Thin Lizzy, Steely Dan, Charles Mingus and many more. Dave Gilmour/Pink Floyd was a huge influence on me wanting to become a guitar player. I was bought my first guitar at age 10 and loved it! I have 12 years of gigging experience in various different styles including jazz, rock, metal, funk and soul. Metal was my first experience of live performance.

In my guitar lessons, I cover a wide range of subjects to ensure you develop a well-rounded skill set. Whether you're diving into electric guitar or acoustic guitar, my lessons are designed to cater to your individual needs and preferences.

Chords and Scales

During our lessons, we begin with the basics such as learning chords and scales. This foundational knowledge is crucial for any aspiring guitarist. We'll explore learning how to construct different chord shapes, understand their construction, and practice various scales to improve your finger strength and dexterity.

Techniques: Slides, Hammer-Ons, and Legato

Next, I introduce you to a variety of techniques like slides, hammer-ons, and legato. These techniques are essential for adding expression to your playing and bringing your guitar playing to life. We'll practice these in both isolation and within the context of your favourite songs to make the learning process more engaging.
