I will cater my lessons to your needs and wants- whether you wish to learn how to play guitar from the basics or need help with honing in your song writing skills, slap bass ability or band member functionality.
I can either focus on getting the very basics of the guitar/bass down for beginners and go about it in a very theoretical way, I.e scales, chord voicings, maintenance and practical skills or go for a more casual approach where students can ask me for particular lessons in different styles and genres. All is down to negotiation and the students level of ability on the initial lesson. For me learning has always been about making sure the student is engaged and happy with the way the lesson is being taught, therefore I am flexible in my delivery.
I am a musician that has played in different touring bands for 6 years as a bassist, gutiarist, song writer and vocalist with a degree in professional musicianship. I've given lessons for 5 years and love helping people learn a new instrument as for me music really helped me in leaps and bounds with my confidence, creativity and self esteem. I'd love to teach beginners as I have recently taught a 9 year old thre first six chords and how to play there way through there chosen song, it was such a proud moment for both of us I can't wait to see it happen again.
I’m a personable and hardworking individual, with experience all around music including promoting shows and charity fund raisers, teaching guitar and bass to all ages, playing shows all over the continent, writing and recording music and performing on the streets as a busker. With my previous paid and voluntary roles varying in responsibilities I have a diverse skill set which could benefit different students. understand hard work and self motivation is paramount to success as team work and customer service are to a happy working environment for both tutor and studfent Having completed a degree I feel confident with my ability in planning to meet deadlines for students when they wish to fulfil a goal in a certain amount of time My time as a volunteer at a homeless sanctuary as well as working at a worker’s co-operative as a shop manager helped me hone in my ability to talk to all groups of customers, clients and people and build rapport.

Matey Boy Promotions |Norwich/Brighton|2012-
As a promoter I put on alternative gig’s to showcase local talent as well as national acts. I have managed to use this company on and off to fund raise for charities as well as for personal projects such as various bands. Using social media and interpersonal skills as well assessing risks is key to promotions, as you have to put money into an event to get it back out, these skills are all things I can pass onto upcoming musicians.
Clock Tower Sanctuary Brighton | Brighton 2013/2016
The Clock Tower Sanctuary was a refuge for homeless young adults between the ages of 16-25. Here I taught many clients casually how to teach guitar from scratch either individually or as a part of a group. I found this to be the most inspiring and spiritually fulfilling role I have ever filled, as music is the great communicator and helped young individuals with a variety of learning difficulties, home issues and drug and alcohol dependencies express themselves.
Ratbag were a Ska Punk band with elements of Folk and Reggae that were regulars on the festival circuit around the uk including playing Boomtown, Bearded Theory, Alchemy, Strawberry Fair and festivals over seas such as ADM and Frequency. I was the lead guitarist and song writer in the band and learnt alot through hands on experience as well as my university degree. The band recorded an EP and a full length album.
At BIMM I studied to be a professional musician, this covered production, teaching, song writing, performance, work shopping with bands, the history of popular music, theory and also verged on the philosophy of popular music in context.
