About Me


I am a professional guitarist and qualified music teacher with extensive experience as a soloist, accompanist, and band member across various genres including Rock, Soul, Funk, Folk, Latin, Reggae, Gypsy Jazz, Classical, and more. I play Lead Guitar for the band El Misti and we’re about to release our third album in 2022.

I have a Degree in Music Education from the international contemporary music awarding body, Rockschool, as well as Grade 8 Electric Guitar (Rockschool) and Grade 8 Classical Guitar (ABRSM), and an Audio Engineering Diploma (SAE Institute International).

I have travelled the world extensively researching world music genres, especially in Latin America. During a 2.5yr journey through Latin America, I attended the School of Mariachi in Guadalajara, Mexico and performed with Cuban street band, Los Jubilados del Caribe, in Santiago de Cuba.

I am originally from the musical city of Liverpool, UK, however in September 2020, I relocated to Mexico where I am continuing my research into Latin American music genres and sharing my knowledge with my students.

Interactive Notation App

Permanent access to custom courses for a wide range of songs and techniques on a state-of-the-art interactive guitar notation app, allowing you to follow tab interactively, slow it down and loop.

Studio Multitracks

I have original individual instrument multi-tracks for hit songs with full transcriptions so you can learn directly from the best guitar performances ever put to tape, as if you were a fly on the wall in the control room. Artists include: The Doors, Nirvana, The Rolling Stones, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Stevie Wonder, The Beatles, Bob Marley, Blue Oyster Cult…

Audio Resources

High-quality custom backing tracks and neck diagrams to help you visualise and internalise.

Direct High-Quality Audio into Zoom

I plug directly into Zoom via a Helix Floor Multi-FX unit and Shure mic.


Beginner or experienced, my approach is to build the lessons around your goals and tastes.

I really enjoy the lessons with Kieran. He’s easy going, adaptable and eager to help me reach my goals.

We have no hesitation in recommending Kieran as a guitar tutor. His friendly manner and structured lessons ensure that our daughter is keen to attend regular weekly sessions and progress. If only she was as keen to undertake her school homework as readily as Kieran’s! His lessons are tailored to include requests to play the tunes she likes to hear. We feel that the combination of Kieran’s clear abilities as a tutor and friendly manner mean that steady, confident progress is being made. We would recommend Kieran to teach anyone interested in learning to play the guitar.

Kieran, a native of Liverpool, England has always taken part in our mariachi music with great enthusiasm and I can proudly say has been a pupil of mine.

Kieran has an outstanding dedication and enthusiasm for Cuban traditional music. There aren’t many foreigners who can play like he does, with the Cuban ‘bomba’ in his heart.
