My Mission

High Quality Lessons an a Wide Range of Genres

I like to maintain a high level of tuition for all of my students ensuring you learn in the best way possible. My students always take away plenty of new material from every lesson, building their guitar playing skills through carefully planned lessons.

I have experience playing all kinds of music and this reflects in my teaching style because I like to make sure all of my students learn the music that they enjoy. I can offer lessons in all styles of popular music, giving you the ability to utilise the vast range of sounds and textures that a guitar is able to produce.

My Experience as a Teacher

I studied classical guitar and electric/jazz guitar at Birmingham Conservatoire where I was awarded a Bachelor of Music degree with first-class honours. Whilst there I had the privilege of taking lessons masterclasses with some of the world’s top guitarists such as Gary Ryan and John Williams. I also hold ABRSM Grade 8 in piano.

After my degree I worked for a number of years as a musician and Music Director on cruise ships, traveling the world and playing music on a nightly basis at a with top-class international musicians.

Since 2014 I have lived in Liverpool where I have worked as a freelance musician and occasional MD in concerts, theatre productions and private functions. Some of the highlights of my playing career have included concerts given at the Liverpool Philharmonic and The South Bank Centre. In 2009 whilst still at university, I performed at Glastonbury Festival and recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London. In 2017 and 2018 I played Guitar, Mandolin and Banjo as part of the house band for the Liverpool Everyman’s award-winning Rep Company and have played guitar and keyboards in a number of other productions at theatres around the country.

Liverpool's music-rich history leaves it with plenty of music shops. You can find anything you might need in the wide variety of music shops on offer in the area. Here's a brief list of some of my favourite locations.

Rimmers Music, is a relatively new store having opened in 2014 but is one of their largest in the UK. This shop is very modern and caters to all levels of guitarist. They are located on the way into Liverpool city centre at Savoy House, West Derby Road, L6 1AE.

Dawsons Music, Is a Uk wide chain of shops that offers everything from guitars to drum kits & everything else. Dawsons Music often has discounts on ex-display stock so are worth a visit on 14-16 Williamson Street, L1 1EB to see what you can get your hands on.
