My Mission

Learn To Play In Many Different Styles

As a performer, I have played in contrasting musical settings all over the world; from hip hop recording sessions to pop gigs at major festivals. My current students benefit from my broad understanding of various contemporary styles, and any who may be interested in learning specific genres will certainly find use in my lessons.

Personal musical achievements of mine include touring the UK, Europe, USA & Australasia, playing at some of the worlds largest festivals and playing at the Welsh Baftas in 2018. I have also achieved formal qualifications including a BA Degree in Performance Industries from the Academy of Music & Sound in Glasgow, and a Foundation Degree in Music Entrepreneur from the University of South Wales.

My Experience as a Teacher

During my time as a bass guitarist, I have become proficient in multiple styles and bolstered my skills through years of performing in professional capacities. My insight has informed my lessons to great effect, with many of my students making enormous leaps in their playing.

Having received training at higher educational institutes such as the Glasgow Academy of Music & Sound and the University of South Wales, I have picked up effective and exciting teaching techniques which focus on specific aspects. By using methodical approaches when practicing, students can make the most out of their time and hone in quickly on their areas of improvement.

Of course, the greatest joy I experience regularly as a teacher is observing the development of my students, however I particularly enjoy watching students build trust in the processes as they climb further and further towards becoming the players they wish to be.

More About My Lessons

My lessons are structured logically, and informed by my years of teaching and performing. Each will aim to keep students busy and progressing steadily, whilst also engaging with their own musical interests.

Though it is important to keep sessions productive, enjoyment is absolutely essential to achieving the best results. Learning any musical instrument should be an exciting process, so I always like to keep lessons relaxed and encouraging for learners!

Each lesson is delivered and planned with the individual student in mind. No two bassists are the same, and so I strongly believe that each lesson's content should reflect age, interests and learning rates of every learner.

Teacher Tips
Learn Bass Through Zoom

Use video call technology to access the guidance of an industry expert from the comfort of your own home

How To Take An Online Lesson

For the past several years, video call software has help connect an innumerable number of students and teachers from across the world. Through learning a quick and straight forward procedure to access lessons through Zoom, you too can receive specialist guidance no matter where in the world you may be based.

Setting up Zoom on any device can be completed quickly and easily, and once finished, you will never have to do it again. Upon Zoom's installation, all you need do as a student is simply open a link sent to you via email in order to access lessons.

Some may be apprehensive towards online lessons, especially when it comes to the learning of musical instruments which take great care and focus to progress on. I must say however that between teaching in person and online, there is no difference present in quality of guidance. As long as your internet connection is stable, there are no reasons as to why students cannot receive the full value of my teaching.

If you require any support whatsoever in the setting up, or operation of Zoom outside of lessons, then I am always happy to assist.

Frequently Asked Questions

My lessons are priced at £12.50 per 30 minutes and £25.00 per 60 minutes.

My lessons can be accessed via Zoom; a highly popular video calling technology that is compatible on a huge range of popular devices.

I teach all ages from 8 years old upwards. I have had great success with students from all walks over life and of many different age groups, including many adult beginners just starting out!

I do not require students to attend their lessons each week, however I do recommend that students leave no longer than two weeks between each appointment. This is simply to keep fingers and minds exercised and developing steadily from lesson to lesson.

Sometimes life throws us surprises, so I completely understand if you must cancel an agreed time slot. However, I do ask students to abide by my 24 hour cancellation policy, which simply means that you must inform me of a postponement or cancellation 24 hours or more prior to the lesson itself. If a lesson is cancelled within 24 hours of the scheduled time then I charge 1/2 the price of the lesson fee.
