My Mission

Enjoy Learning

I have years of playing experience as well as a few years experience in teaching. I use this experience to make sure your lessons are of the highest quality but also enjoyable. I really feel that it's important we learn in a direction that you feel comfortable with as well as making sure you learn all the essentials to gain a better understanding of the instrument.

For the lessons that I provide I like to make sure we learn music that is familiar to you and that you enjoy. I think this is the most effective way to promote learning and also the best way to build motivation to practice in your own time which of course, is essential when learning anything. When learning this way not only do you get to improve on your instrument but you also have the added benefit of being able to play your favorite songs too.

My Lessons

All Genres & Beginners Welcome

I think that all musicians, especially those that teach should have an understanding of all genres. This is no exception when it comes to myself, I'm comfortable in teaching all genres including Jazz, Pop, Rock & more. I will help you learn genres that you like as well as ensuring you have a good understanding of other genres as well because I feel that this is very important if you want to take your playing to a new level.

I have experience teaching both adults and young learners, Beginners and advanced players. Regardless of your level, I will help you achieve what you've always wanted to be able to play. As well as teaching adults, I have also had experience in teaching groups of children at primary school. I think young learners need to be regularly engaged with and the lessons need to be fun and enjoyable, this is something that I have tried to perfect over the years & I regularly receive praise for my teaching style.

My Experience as a Teacher

I am an experienced and passionate music teacher with several years of whole-class teaching behind me. I am highly experienced with teaching in primary school education and I’m committed to making the classroom music lessons fun, accessible and meaningful. I’m also a professional saxophonist and can also teach clarinet and flute. I’m also experienced in teaching Beginners piano and music theory.

I find that my experience in performing can help my students both develop their playing and even help them overcome problems with confidence and playing in front of others. These are skills that are also important when it comes to everyday life as well & I feel that this is something I can definitely work on with my students if they need help with it.

As explained before, I have a great deal of experience when it comes to teaching young students and students who aren't experienced players. I like to make sure we learn at a steady pace. I have a good attention to detail as well which will ensure that you learn the right way and won't pick up any bad habits at all.

More About My Lessons

My lessons can be easily divided into different sections, sometimes with more emphasis on whatever you feel you want to improve on. I like to break my lessons up into song work, understanding, techniques, theory and much more. For your lessons, you're more than welcome to let me know what you think you need to improve an then that will be the direction that we will aim for.

I like to promote learning in a direction that you enjoy, I think that learning what you enjoy will ultimately lead to fast improvement in both playing and understanding which is what everyone wants, right?

During my time as a player and teacher I have achieved a Bachelor of Arts ( Honours ) in Humanities with Music, Diploma in Jazz Music & a Diploma in Light Music. These have been invaluable to me & I have gained so much knowledge as well as many new skills that I would love to pass onto you.

How To Take An Online Lesson

Here is some information to help you get prepared to take your online guitar lessons.

Speed Test, is a very useful tool as having a stable internet connection is one of the most important parts to these lessons. Here you will be able to see what your speeds are and we will only need a speed of 3mbps to have a stable enough connection for the lessons.

As well as a stable internet connection you will need to have access to some kind of electronic device that has a camera on it. This could be things like a laptop, tablet or a smartphone. Many things have cameras on them nowadays so once we have access to one of these you are ready to go.

Once you have a device ready to go, there are many services we can use to connect for the actual lessons. The most common and reliable services tend to be Zoom, Skype or Facetime for Apple device users. There are other options too so if these don't work for you for any reason please just let me know and we can go through other possible options together.
