My teaching style is warm, friendly and open. I am as much about helping the student to find their confidence as I am about building strong technical foundations.
If you want to study for grades, or just to improve your playing, I am more than happy to help. Once we have decided where we can go together, our lessons will consist of technical exercises such as scales and arpeggios, studying songs, music theory, performance training, confidence on stage and sight reading.
I have been working as a professional musician for nearly 10 years and in that time have played to well over 100,000 people in venues such as the Savoy, Pizza Express Jazz Clubs, New Zealand House, the Liverpool Empire, Manchester Palace, Edinburgh Playhouse to name just a few. I have also worked as a session musician on scores for the BBC, the short films 'Cupcake' and 'Latter-Day Saint', as well as on many ads for companies such as Gumtree, IKEA and CompareTheMarket.
I have also taught hundreds of students, who have gone on to receive some of the highest grade 8 results in the UK and to perform in West End and touring shows.
Please get in touch for specific rates, as I charge less for beginner students than advanced.
Cancellations must be over 24 hours before the lesson, otherwise I have to charge.

I have toured and worked with Chris for quite a while now. I can say without any doubt he is one of the best and most hard-working musicians I have ever worked with. He is professional and knows exactly what he’s talking about. If it’s lessons you’re looking for he’s definitely your man!
Chris is a stand-up guy - a consummate professional who won't let you down. He takes the time to understand his students and can adapt his teaching style to meet their needs. On top of this, he is extremely knowledgeable and talented - can't recommend him enough.
