My Experience as a Teacher

I am an experienced musician and have played shows all across the UK. I studied Music and Music Technology at A Level and in 2011, I graduated from the University Of South Wales with a degree in Music Technology

I have been a full-time guitar teacher to all ages for approaching a year now and I have gained a huge amount of experience in that time teaching to all ability levels. I currently work for two after-school tuition companies known as The Rock Project and The Rock Academy Foundation. I have also been teaching in Primary schools through a company called Moo Melodies. So I have a lot of experience in teaching children and teenagers. Away from my tuition I play in a variety of bands and have 10 years experience in performing and recording as a guitarist.

Whether my students are beginners or more advanced, I will help you set goals for your playing help you achieve them. You will learn songs that you love and be amazed by how much you improve.
