My Experience as a Teacher

After studying at Berklee College of Music in Boston, USA I moved to London and developed a career as a session musician, composer, and teacher.

I am a member of the band The Boxer Rebellion and the touring guitarist for Freya Ridings, with both of whom I have toured the world several times. I've played many major festivals, TV shows, and radio shows. I have taught dozens of students over the last 10 years, from Beginner to Advanced levels, both privately and in schools.

Whether you'd like to learn purely for fun, or take a formal route and prepare for ABRSM, Trinity, or Rockschool exams, I will tailor lesson plans and teaching material to cater to whichever path you choose.

Lessons Focus

All Genres

I teach all genres including Classical, Pop, Rock, Acoustic & Jazz.

More About My Lessons

Reading music is an excellent skill to possess as a musician but is not vital to learning to play. I'm particularly passionate about teaching children and beginners and giving them a great introduction to the world of music and performance.

I am also able to teach more specific skills relating to music theory, composition, and production. I have in-depth knowledge of theory and harmony, as well as Pro Tools, Logic, and other music software.

I do however, really pride myself on offering lessons that are always of a high standard but that are also enjoyable for all of my students & will leave you excited to learn every week.

Music Shops in Oxford

Oxford has always had a great history of music and arts & this is still around and can be found today. If you are looking to get started as a musician then there are plenty of music shops to chose from. here are my favourites.

PMT Oxford, is a great option to go too. They have an amazing selection of guitars for you to choose from. There is something for both experienced and beginner guitarists alike. They can be found on 381 Cowley Rd, Oxford OX4 2BS.

Music Box, is a small independent music store that stocks a wide range of instruments including acoustic & electric guitars. They can be found on 53A Cowley Rd, Oxford OX4 1HP. I would also recommend this place if you are looking for a repair.

Allegro. Lastly if you are looking for a shop that specialises more in classical instruments then Allegro Ltd is your best bet. They can be found on 404 Marston Rd, Oxford OX3 0JE and have an amazing stock of pianos and woodwind instruments.
