Fun and inspiring lessons given by a creative, working musician.
Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
Lessons are done via Skype.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach the acoustic and electric guitar, from beginners to advanced, in a variety of styles including fingerstyle (inc. Delta blues & '60s folk), rock, pop and blues. Additionally, I offer classical guitar tuition, and can enter you or your child for graded exams if required.

I also offer lessons for the ukulele. Becoming increasingly popular, the ukulele is perfect for those with minimal-to-no past musical experience. Email me for more information.

I incude music theory as part of the learning process, and will lay a greater focus on this aspect of music if you wish. I have also helped students improve their songwriting/composition skills.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I have an Upper Second Class BMus (Hons) degree in Music from the University of Huddersfield.
What kind of experience do you have?
I am in a professional, actively touring and recording band called Maia. In Maia I have played all over the country and we are gaining critical acclaim as an up-and-coming band to see live. (See www.maiatheband.com)

I began tutoring during the final year of my degree, and continue today with the same enthusiasm and enjoyment.

I also give ukulele workshops at various folk festivals throughout the UK. See my photos for an example (I'm in the green T shirt!).
How much do you charge?
£20 / 45mins

£25 / 1 hour

Due to time constraints, I can no longer travel to you for lessons except in rare circumstances and for an additional cost. Get in touch and we can discuss whether home visits are a possibility.
Where do you teach?
I primarily teach at my home in Burley in Wharfedale. The room is equipped with 3 high quality acoustics, 2 electrics, 2 ukuleles and a Roland electric piano.

Burley in Wharfedale sits between Ilkley, Otley and Guiseley, and is easily accessible via car or train from Bradford and Leeds.
When are you available?
Please get in touch to discuss availability. There are occasions as a musician where I am unavailable due to touring commitments, but these can be negotiated when necessary. I am sure we can arrange an appropriate time..
Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach all ages but usually advise that lessons begin no younger than 7. You are welcome to accompany your child if you wish. I am very patient and will explain something as many times as required.

If you are a complete beginner I'm happy to take you on, whether you have previous musical experience or not.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
LCM Classical Guitar

LCM Acoustic Guitar
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes. Full DBS (CRB) Certificate available to see upon request.
Where and with whom did you train?
I began learning music at the age of 6, starting with the classical guitar. I learned drum kit with Geoff Chew in my teenage years, and studied piano with Clare Richards.

I later obtained a 2:1 BMus Hons degree in music from the University of Huddersfield, where I gained knowledge and experience in tutoring 1 to 1 lessons.
Do you have a personal message for students?
Thanks for taking the time to have read the above. Please get in touch if you need any more information or would like to progress with lessons.

I look forward to hearing from you!
