About the lesson

I have a fresh and informal approach to teaching music. We learn through the styles and techniques that best suite you; that's whether you are a beginner, or have ambitions to play music professionally.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach guitar, piano, singing and songwriting. My lessons are built around students' own musical interests. So, this could be an introduction to the guitar via Heavy Metal, or learning the principles of finger-picking through the work of the Beach Boys; it could be learning how to sing with a focus on Celtic folk songs, or it could simply be developing your own back catalogue, and would spend time writing and recording your own songs.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I was classical trained in the piano and have Grades 1-7 (Guildhall), and grades 1-5 in Musical Theory (Guildhall). I have Music GCSE (A grade) and I studied voice and song at the Royal Irish Academy of Music in Dublin. I am self-taught on the guitar.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £20 an hour for all lessons.

- Where do you teach?

I teach students in their homes, and most of my lessons are in East London: Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Dalston, Highbury, and West London where my band rehearse: Ladbroke Grove, Notting Hill, Shepard's Bush...I can and do teach anywhere within zones 1 and 2 though, with no change in my fee. I charge £5 extra if I have to travel further than this.

- When are you available?

I am flexible. Most of my lessons are arranged for evenings (6pm-10pm), and some daytimes during the week. If weekends are better for you, we can work something out.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

All ages and levels are welcome. Generally, most of my pupils are beginning to learn their instrument when they come to me, and the emphasis is on learning at their own pace. Specifically, it is the pupils who want to learn the guitar, voice or piano with an eye to forming a band, that I feel I can be a particular help to.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

My teaching is not geared towards getting qualifications, but throughout each course of lessons I set out clear goals for each student that we constantly refer to and work towards.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

So much of learning music and songwriting is down to you, what I try and do is bring out what most excites you about the process of learning music, so that it is as fun and as natural as possible.
