Welcome to my website. Here I share and showcase all of my latest songs and albums, as well as offering guitar lessons. I have a number of students under my guidance ranging through all ages and ability levels. I am highly passionate about music, whether it be listening, writing or teaching it.
I currently have 2 albums available:
Conservation and other stories
Courage and other stories
Both are available on: itunes, spotify, amazon music, apple music and youtube music
I have been teaching Acoustic Guitar to children and adults since 1994. I have experience of teaching in a secondary school in Essex, but since moving to Birkenshaw in 2000 I now teach from home.
I am able to teach pupils to read music (notation), strum and pick (arpeggio) chords and tab (read music by numbers).
I compose my own songs, several of which have been played on local BBC Radio stations: Essex, Leeds, Lincolnshire, Medway and Merseyside. A number of songs are now on youtube.
Many pupils enjoy learning pop songs and I have a wide range of material from artists such as The Beatles, Elvis, Green Day, Oasis, Simon and Garfunkel etc.
The range of music covers the 1950’s through to the present day. A range of Children’s songs and carols can also be taught.
For those confident enough to sing along with their playing, I can help with this aspect of music, as I have much experience of performing popular music at various venues.
