I have taught guitar for 10 years - children, adults, complete beginners, intermediate players and singer-songwriters.I am also a professional session musician and so have extensive experience in a live performance and recording setting.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
Guitar - acoustic, electric, bass and beginner classical.
I try to approach each student's lesson on an individual level and focus on what they are looking to achieve. My speciality is soul, pop and funk playing, but I have experience playing all styles and can provide a solid foundation for players to build upon and achieve their full potential.
Having many years' experience as a performer I can also give advice on gigging, songwriting, recording and how the music industry works.
I have a HND (performance) in Guitar from the Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford, as well as Grade 5 (theory & classical guitar) and Grade 8 piano.
-What do you charge?
I regularly do 30 minute lessons (I believe this is a good amount of time, especially for beginners). I charge £20 for 30mins, or £30 for a 40 minute lesson.
- Where do you teach?
I teach mainly from home in Chelmsford or via Skype.
- When are you available?
I am available to teach most weekdays,
weekday evenings from Monday -Wednesday,
or some weekends during the day.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach complete beginner through to intermediate levels. All ages welcome.
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
RGT acoustic Grades
ABRSM Classical Grades
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have taught guitar for 10 years - children, adults, complete beginners, intermediate players and singer-songwriters. Some want to be able to jam songs with friends, but I can also offer a more academic tuition route for Rockschool/RGT/ABRSM graded exams for example.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
- Where and with whom did you train?
Academy Of Contemporary Music in Guildford / ABRSM exams

- Tell me about some of your current students.
Currently my youngest student is 8 years old. We are learning some pop songs (Ollie Murs, Bruno Mars, Pharell, Black Eyed Peas...) on acoustic guitar. He also enjoys coming up with ideas and singing his own songs!
Some of the older students are working towards Rockshool Grades, which give a great foundation in all aspects of playing guitar. These grades can eventually be used towards UCAS points for further education.
I always try to incorporate some theory, rhythm work, technique and reading into my lessons, as well as the fun part where we get to work on songs!
Everyone gets into guitar for different reasons and have very varied goals and tastes. I always try to cater the lessons to what each student is looking to achieve.
