A little bit about myself.

After graduating from CLCM with a BA(hons) degree in Jazz and popular music I have spent the last 20 years playing on many West End shows.

I am also fortunate enough to have played with and took lessons from Jim Hall, Wayne Krantz, Carl Verheyen, Jon Herington as well as U.K Jazz greats Pat McarthyMike Walker.

As well as having a career as a professional guitarist I have taught at a number of colleges in the United Kingdom, helping to  develop the Guitar Syllabus and teaching one to one at degree level.

I teach from a well equipped studio room at my home in West Byfleet Surrey, covering all styles and aspects of music from Pop, Rock, Blues, through to Jazz and Country styles. 

When it comes to grades I recommend the younger students partake in the Rock School Syllabus.  I have found this a very effective way to help younger students keep focus and really enjoy their lessons.
