Jazz, world, folk, classical 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.

Have you failed to learn before? Why not try again? Often students are given too much information without adequate reference material. I now encourage working through trinity college classical or rock and pop books for a clear working direction. However i am able to augment the books with my own transcriptions of important material.

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.

I am now also teaching Classical guitar up to Grade 8, trinity college syllabus.

My group Oriole have released three albums. I have also played with many other groups over the years.

I am currently performing in duo with guitarist Giorgio Serci.
