About the lesson
My lessons are tailored to suit the individual. There is no one size fits all. It doesn't take long to find out what each individual wants from lessons; so I hope to make lessons enjoyable and worthwhile. Lessons are never rigidly structured as there are too many variables at play that can undermine that approach; but I am able to think on my feet and where appropriate I can suggest a plan of action. But it has to be with the student's consent. I'm very patient with students and always try to see things from their perspective. I try to emphasise that that the pleasure is in the voyage of discovery and of seeing progress over a period of time. Not all students are on the fast track - far from it. Again, you have to see it from the individual's perspective - for some it is purely about enjoying their hobby; for others it is something else.

Pedal Steel Guitar
I have been teaching since 1990; in various contexts including schools, colleges, adult education and especially privately. During this time, I have taught many students, some of whom have gone on to greater things; and many of whom have passed exams in guitar, bass, classical, acoustic, music theory and band exams.
