General Details

Honours in Levels 1 - 6 in Classical Guitar Trinity College of Music London

For Guitarists that are interested in something niche, I offer workshops in ‘live looping with creative effects’ and ‘live performance concepts/techniques’ that gel tastefully with DJs playing House and Electronic music.

For beginners and the more traditionally minded intermediate guitarists I offer lessons in Classical, Flamenco, Rock, Metal, Gypsy Jazz and Funk.

If there’s a certain song you want to learn we can focus on that too. Whatever level you’re at, I’ll break down the tune you want to play to meet your current ability of playing and work up and onward from there. The goal is to get you playing, improving and enjoying the process of it all at the same time.

Over the years of playing and teaching professionally I have compiled a pretty large resource of technical exercises covering many aspects of playing. Depending on what your goals are as a guitarist we can also opt to pay strict attention per lesson on a particular technique (or hard to nail lick) that you want to learn, improve on and perfect.

Last but not least, we’ll jam! It’s the best way to develop your ear, timing and synchronization with another player live. This is where we can hone in on developing your improvisational skills too.

I think you’ll appreciate and enjoy my multi-genre approach to playing and teaching Guitar whether it’s to step up your professional game or simply bring a fun new jam along to your next BBQ. Either way I look forward to mapping out a customized plan that will help you to become a more well rounded player. There’s really no limits, just practice, persistence and passion.

Get playing soon!
