To get the most out of our time together you must first ask yourself - What do you want to achieve? As opposed to the rather old school approach of throwing classical notation at younger students who want to become the next Hendrix, I like to think that the aims, goals and desired outcome of the student are the most vital aspect to determine before anything else.
I promote a relaxed, informal tutoring environment and go by the "practice makes perfect" ethos involving disciplined metronome practice. I offer catered lesson plans to each students desired outcome and where they see themselves in a year to five years time.
My specialities include:
Time Management & Discipline: How to ensure you get the most out of your practice routine.
Tablature Exercises: I create custom excerices and licks based around the students influences.
Chords Knowledge: For both beginners, intermediate, and advanced players.
Technique: Hone what I call the ''economy of motion'' to get the most out of your playing.
Theory: Any & all levels of theory, particularly in application to part/songwriting
Improvising: Approaching intermediate/advanced soloing technique
Learn to play: For students that want to learn particular songs.
Recording and Production: Guided production techniques so that you turn ideas into a physical format.
Orchestration & Clip Writing: Utilising a chamber 32 piece orchestra I can teach you how to utilise counterpoint & harmony to create lush textures.
Take your musicianship to the next level and always strive to keep pushing the envelope.

I've been learning guitar with jack for several months now and he has really adapted my existing knowledge of music from 15 years of playing piano and helped me translate it on to guitar. In just a few months I have learnt to play along with a lot of my favourite songs and have learnt a number of different scales in order to begin improvising. Highly recommended!
Lessons with Jack have been incredibly insightful and he's been professional and friendly every time. I'd fully recommend him as a tutor, he's versatile and can cover so many different genres/topics with great depth and understanding. He's been very encouraging and over all I'm incredibly happy with his teaching and the progress I'm making
Jack teaches my son guitar and brings so much fun to lessons. My son has learnt so much all ready and Jack is always patient and goes out of his way to make sure my son understands what he is doing. My son is on target to get a A at GCSE Music and Jack can take great credit for this
