Professional Guitarist with 10 years experience in playing and performing up to advanced higher level.

Methodology

I approach all teaching (and even if I'm teaching myself) with a slow and steady, start from scratch attitude. Let's make sure we're both on the same page and understand what we're really looking at and hearing before going forward. I like to recreate the teaching structure that I had at the age of 9 onwards. I don't think I would be where I am today without the enthusiasm and help that I received for those 7 years. You certainly don't want to feel rushed and bamboozled.

Background

I've been playing the acoustic, electric and bass guitar for over 10 years now, 5 of which have been professionally in my metal band - Lotus Eater. We've toured the world, we're signed to Hopeless Records. I started learning and began taking lessons at the age of 9, I was influenced mainly by my friends/family and their musical ability. Starting off with an acoustic guitar and nothing but determination behind me I continued my lessons for around 7 years, playing various different styles and types of guitars. I have an SQA Higher A in both Musical Performance/Understanding and Musical Technology.
