About Me


I have been playing the guitar since 1974 and teaching since 2003. I played punk and metal in my early years and my Band work these days is as lead guitarist for the Essential Sounds Big Band, playing lots of dance music and jazz. My solo work is at weddings and parties. I started teaching privately in 2003 and began teaching guitar in Essex Schools with the Essex Music Education Hub in 2009.

My students study from Grade Exam syllabuses published by London College of Music, Registry of Guitar Tutors, Trinity rock and RSL Awards (formerly Rockschool). I will also teach to ABRSM standards upon request. All my students studying LCM, Royal Conservatory (Toronto) or ABRSM syllabuses automatically learn to read music as sightreading is a feature of the Exams. There is no requirement to take exams, but they are a popular way of comparing a skillset against a global standard.

Adult learners prefer to learn from a repertoire-based syllabus so they can accompany themselves when they sing, and I have a large body of material to help them achieve their goals.

Since Lockdown, I have expanded my capabilities to include online tuition by Video link.
