I currently have slots on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Please enquire for availability.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach all ages and all levels, from absolute beginners to advanced students.
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
I prepare my students for ABRSM, Trinity Guildhall and RockSchool exams. However, exams are not for everyone and I think that it is perfectly possible to gain a great musical education without taking examinations.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
There are many different reasons that people choose to pick up the guitar, and different things that each person will want from a musical education. I am happy to tailor my lessons to the student's needs. Whether a student wants to learn to play a few songs by their favourite band, learn to play classical guitar, or aspire to compose music with the guitar, I place great importance on helping the student take the most enjoyment from learning to play their instrument. Please get in touch to discuss the possibility of arranging a lesson for you or your child.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have been a peripatetic guitar tutor for 3 years. I have experience teaching pupils of all ages and levels. I have also worked for the music education charity Music for Youth. Whilst working for MFY I learned a lot about many of the new and exciting things that are going on in music education today, and this has greatly informed my teaching practice.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
- Where and with whom did you train?
At Goldsmiths College I studied performance with Alexander Ivashkin, Steven Cottrell and Robin Michael. I studied composition with Dmitri Smirnov and Roger Redgate.
