I teach a wide range of styles but have the most experience in teaching rock and pop. I like to make sure my students learn in a direction that they want to.

I also offer graded exams & help with preparing towards them if you like. However, if you are more interested in learning songs then I will make a lesson plan that best suits your needs and interests.

Lessons are pay-as-you-go, weekly, fortnightly or as suits you.

My Experience as a Teacher

I am an experienced musician & tutor and I have been involved in music for the past 15 years. My lessons are focused around my students having fun, achieving progression, increasing in skill & technique, and most importantly – falling in love with their instrument!

I have been playing guitar and bass for 10-15 years, and have been playing in bands from the age of 13. Since then, I have had wonderful opportunities to be involved in playing in a wide variety of bands at Christian festivals, conferences and church services.

I will draw upon my experience to make sure that you really get the most out of our lessons together. I can help you build your confidence and build on your technique and style.

More About Me

I have been teaching guitar & bass since 2016 when I started working with The Rock Project Berkshire. The Rock Project are an after school music club, who not only teach children and adults how to play musical instruments but also how to play as a band!

Not long after joining the team, I also started up my own private teaching business. From my experience with The Rock Project, and also with St Paul's Church in Weston-super-Mare (where I headed up the development of young musicians for several years), the aim for all of my lessons is to have fun while learning.

I long for my students to want to play their instruments just from the pure enjoyment they gain from doing so. I provide a relaxing and non-pressured environment, however, perhaps, the only pressure is to have fun!
