Teacher Info

For the past 8 years, I’ve been working as a professional musician. This has taken me across the world and regularly takes me across the UK. I’ve got experience in everything from television, radio, recording sessions, big bands, function bands, singer-songwriters, jazz and theatre pits.

Have you ever taken a double bass up a very perilous hill to play while someone proposed to their partner? I have! Bass is my specialist instrument, I am not a guitarist who also teaches bass. I was at college studying music and then progressed to University. I have a BA(Hons) degree in music from Edinburgh Napier University where my specialist subjects were jazz and first study electric bass.

I’ve taken private lessons with Janek Gwizdala, Anthony Wellington, Jeff Berlin and Sharay Reed. As a teacher, I have taught bass privately for 12 years. I teach as an instrumental instructor in schools so I’ve got experience from the absolute beginner to more seasoned players regardless of age group.

Students have gone on to pass exams both in school and graded, gotten accepted to places in college/university, started/joined bands and generally just getting out and playing more to have fun.

Hi I had some lessons with Giancarlo a few years back and had to cut out due to some family problems in London, but I have to say in the 12 or so lessons I had with him as a complete beginner to playing base were outstanding Giancarlo took it right back to basics for me and showed a tremendous amount of patience and understanding to help me tackle an entirely new experience, taking me from having no understanding at all to a seasoned amateur, I’m due to move back to Scotland next year and I’ll certainly be giving Giancarlo a call.
