My methodology is based on focusing your attention on a determined number of areas to work in, which are flexible depending on specific student needs.
- Improvisation techniques
- Left-hand comping techniques (rootless voicings, one hand spread voicings, tritones)
- Chart reading and stylistic improvisation (chords and melody, soloing, head with variations)
- Ear training
- Time management (how to work effectively in a limited amount of time)

For any information or bookings, please feel free to send me a message. I usually teach within weekdays and lessons are arranged either at my studio near Limehouse Station, E1W 3HB or directly at your home.
I am fortunate and grateful to have come across and worked with talented artists, as well as walked the path of a wealth of experience. Each encounter has given me a valuable knowledge and craftsmanship in which I honed my expertise. Teaching is also a platform for me to facilitate students in identifying their personal musical interests and goals while accommodating them with a solid foundation in musical knowledge and instrumental skills.
