I have approximately thirty years playing experience including over 10 years as a full time guitar tutor. Over the past decade I have enjoyed helping in excess of 100 enthusiastic guitarists to achieve their individual musical goals, with students ranging from as young as 5, to well into retirement.

I am a member of the Musicians Union and am fully CRB checked.
