I tailor my lessons to suit each individual pupil’s needs. Whether you have previous experience or you’re an absolute beginner (It’s NEVER too late to start), I can get you playing stuff you never thought possible!

I teach in a logical and systematic fashion to ensure consistent progress whilst keeping the lessons musical and fun. I have my own syllabus or I can teach the Rock School Grade series. Pupils are welcome to take these exams.
