Tell me about your qualifications.
I have a Bmus in Music Performance from the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance in Kilburn. I also hold a Rockschool affiliated teaching licentiate.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have 20 years experience as a professional musician. I have played West End touring shows, cruise ships, and venues such as The Jazz Cafe and 02 Indigo London. I have taught individuals privately as well as group settings. My main approach when teaching is to identify clear goals and help the student get the best from their valuable practice time.
With younger guitar students I particularly encourage classical style as an excellent introduction to learning along with the books 'The Guitarist's Way'.

£35.00 per hour is my standard rate. For distances travelled over 30mins, there is an additional £5 travel charge.
For students who wish to book blocks of lessons in advance, 4 lessons blocks of one hour are £120.00 (Also potentially subject to travel costs.)
For 45 min lessons I charge £30.00 per lesson or £100.00 for a block of 4.

I am happy to offer free telephone or video call consultations to discuss how to best meet your needs before engaging in lessons.
