Teacher Info

I’ve played the guitar since I was fourteen years old, inspired by my uncle and cousin who both played in popular bands.

I have always been a lover of many genres of music and play anything from pop, rock, folk, blues and jazz.

I toured and played for various bands over the years from my early London days in clubs e.g. The Marquee, Ronnie Scotts, Rock Garden, Dingwalls etc., abroad in Spain and now in local Hampshire venues with my four-piece band The China Wolf Band. I have also done session recording work and production for various artists.

I taught children in Spain and enjoyed seeing the results fairly quickly from no knowledge at all to being able to play and gain musicality very quickly.

Recently, I have taught guitar locally on a one-to-one basis to students of ages ranging from 19 to 55 and I can teach any age. For me, passing on my years of guitar knowledge and skills is very satisfying.

In the first lesson, I make it as friendly and comfortable as possible, initially finding out what the pupil’s level is, i.e. whether a complete beginner or has some knowledge and experience. We begin with some basic chord shapes eventually deciding to work on a song they might like to learn. With me being a left-handed player, it sometimes makes it easier for some students as it creates a mirror image situation.

In summary, I would say my overall teaching method is relaxed, friendly, patient and ultimately professional. One student recently remarked that he had learnt more in one hour from me than several years on the Internet. As mentioned, student ages recently so far have been 19-55. Any age is acceptable. In Spain, I taught children of seven years upwards. My approach is not very different for any age but for minors, it might be more appropriate to teach at their home than invite to my studio.
