Music has the power to promote creative expression and builds confidence through sharing ideas. It inspires people of all abilities to learn, and most importantly, to want to learn. I believe, in addition to the benefits of education, that playing and having fun are vital to the personal and cultural growth of any individual.
I teach guitar and bass guitar from beginners to advanced level musicians. I tailor my lessons to the individuals needs. I have over 10 years of experience as a semi-professional musician teaching guitar and bass at a Secondary School in Cheltenham in the UK, playing in bands and working as a session musician for studio recording and touring. I am very easy-going and friendly with a lot of knowledge to share. Let's play music together and discover where your musical journey will take you!

I always try to provide the best service possible and if this means the lessons slightly overrun then that's okay with me at no extra cost!
Beginner to advanced students are welcome! Let's have a chat and figure out if we are a match. I like all types of music so we need to get talking about what music you love and what inspires you. I am friendly and I enjoy finding out about and helping you with what you want to achieve musically.
Learning an instrument takes hours of practice, making countless mistakes and sounding terrible sometimes! So, let's enjoy that learning process by having great fun in the studio so that when we take it to the rehearsals and to the stage we can let it all go and be confident in our performance. Patience... practicepracticepractice... and play!
