I am happy to take my lead from my students, learn from them and pursue exactly what makes them excited to play music. I've worked with students as young as four and as old as 65; of abilities ranging from complete beginner to semi-professional. I greatly enjoy finding the way to communicate an idea that most resonates and 'clicks' with the student.
I am delighted to teach those that wish to learn to read music, but do not insist on this if individual students wish to work more with their ears. However, my preferred way of teaching is a fully rounded approach to musicianship: encompassing aural (listening) skills, reading, music theory, improvisation, harmony, rhythmic understanding and vocal skills.
I am a multi-instrumentalist specializing in jazz and finger-style guitar playing who has been teaching all manner of musical disciplines to over 100 students for 15 years. After achieving a pass with Distinction in my Grade 8 ABRSM Classical Guitar and guitar teaching Diplomas from the ICMA, I then studied for a BMus at King's College London with a focus on Jazz Guitar and Composition. As a performer I am experienced as a classical and jazz guitarist, playing both solo and with groups, and a trumpet player in both orchestras and jazz-funk groups.
I can be negotiated down if you're close to me and a very enthusiastic student!
Perfect! Really great fun, informative and tailored to my level of skill. Thank you Mark!
