Professional Musician available to teach Bass Guitar to all levels in Manchester

Methodology

I want to teach students who want to play - whether just starting out, wanting to learn some new skills or refresh something old, regardless of age - I want to find the right material to inspire them to play. I learn from technical exercises, as well as playing songs and music.

Experience

I am a freelance Bassist working in Manchester and across the UK.
I perform regularly providing Bass Guitar, Double Bass and Backing Vocals.
I studied Popular Music Performance at The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance in London, and I'm comfortable playing in a wide variety of styles live on stage, in a musical theatre pit or recording in the studio.
