More About My Playing

I've been playing guitar since the age of 10, since then I have been working professionally as both a bassist and guitarist, performing in all varied styles including, Pop, Jazz, Funk, Soul, Blues, Folk, Electronic & more. This will enable my students to be able to learn a wide variety of genres & enables me to be ready to teach any style you might be interested in.

I've studied up to a grade 7 in popular music through my university course, with knowledge in: Scales, Modes, Chords, Rhythm notation, Knowledge of popular music, Harmony, Transposition. With this in mind, If you wanted to go through the graded system I am more than qualified to teach you and push your learning in this direction.

I've had also had extensive experience working in studios and using DAW's (Logic & Ableton), Recording Techniques & Production. Songwriting & Composition, Professional Development / How to brand & market yourself as an artist. If you are interested in recording yourself or don't know where to start when it comes to recording I would be more than happy to help.
