Jazz, world, folk and rock styles.

Qualified, Professional and Patient

About your classes:

I have a new site www.acoustic-guitar-lessons.co.uk, although its still being developed its worth visiting. Its dedicated to teaching and the videos/scores are presented in a clearer manner.

The lessons are structured to your needs with a balance of learning and enjoyment. Beginners, advanced, old and young students are all equally welcome. Some advanced students have gone onto Berkley and Guildhall Universities and indeed in one case to play with John McLaughlin and Herby Hancock, in other cases its a fantastic relaxing hobby.

Have you failed to learn before? Why not try again? Often students are given too much information without adequate reference material. I provide either videos via email with a summary of the class, or a written summary in tablature (easy to understand)/music score. Click on the examples below, or under the Scores and videos for learning heading on the right hand side.

Trinity Buoy Wharf

Trinity Buoy Wharf has become a melting pot for musicians and artists, it’s also a historic area boasting Londons only lighthouse and smallest Museum.
Sitting on the Thames with a gorgeous view of the London skyline, the wharf is a peaceful respite from the hustle and bustle of the city.

About your teacher:

I’ve spent the last three years in the south of Spain taking in different influences but now I’m based in central London. I specialize in Jazz, World and Folk styles on acoustic but I also have years of experience playing and teaching popular styles on both acoustic and electric guitars. I have taught in WAC(weekend arts college), Guildhall University, CYM (Center for young musicians, Southwark), Earnest Bevin College and various London schools. I have a clear and current CRB check, child protection police check certificate.
