My Experience as a Teacher

I began to play the guitar when I was around 14 years old. I remember listening to Samba Pa Ti by Santana for the first time and was instantly pulled in. Since that time, guitar-driven music has been my biggest passion. My musical influences are taken from a range of genres from Pop to Heavy Metal, as I feel that the instrument is versatile enough to suit a wide range of styles.

I have played in a variety of different bands from a Black Sabbath tribute band to a modern dance funk group. As well as this I have also recorded some original solo pieces too. Working in these projects has allowed me to play alongside people from different backgrounds, ages, and styles. As well as having real word experience I have studied music at the degree level.

It was at university that I developed an understanding between theory, intricate harmony, complex rhythms and virtuosic playing and this experience allowed me to become the dedicated musician that I am today. I am now very happy to be in a position where I can share these skills with my students too.

More About My Lessons

I have a variety of guitar teaching experience which includes working with students in larger groups to one-to-one lessons too. I will always make sure we are working through songs, material and techniques to match your specific goals and aims.

My lessons will cover a huge range of musical topics to suit all backgrounds. Some of the main things that are covered in the lessons are things like how to understand music theory to a high degree and exploration of guitar techniques and phrasings such as hammer-ons, pull-offs, natural harmonics, artificial harmonics, whammy bar techniques, slides, bends and many more.

My philosophy in teaching is to allow the student to become well-equipped with a sound understanding in all areas, which will ultimately lead to the student becoming an independent musician prepared for real world band situations and live shows.
