Music student with 17 years playing experience and 9 years gigging experience offering guitar lessons.

Methodology

I like to teach how my students like to be taught. The best results come when the student is enjoying the lesson. Theres no point teaching scales to someone who doesn't want to learn scales; or teaching metal to someone wanting to work through classical grades. If you want to learn covers of songs so you can sit in your room/go to an open mic and sing some songs; I'm more than happy to do that. If you want to methodically compose a grade 8 jazz solo, we can do that too. If you're happy I'm happy.

Experience

I am doing a degree in songwriting and have been teaching for the last four years with the age of the student ranging from 6-38. I attained my grade 8 in guitar when I was 13.
I have taught 15 students in total, with many achieving grades. A student of mine recently acquired his grade 8 which was a particular success after he wanted to methodically work through each grade which took a few years.

Interests
I am an extremely passionate musician and have developed a competitive drive to succeed in whatever I put my mind to. At the age of thirteen, I attained a Guitar Grade 8, having only played since I was six years of age and more recently, have taken part and excelled in many music competitions. I also have a keen interest in sport, and have been a proud member of the local cricket team for many years, and in addition held a vital role in my school’s football team. I have a strong work ethic and believe determination and willingness to learn within a career is paramount to success, along with having excellent communication skills.
