I offer online lessons in guitar, bass, ukulele, mandolin and music theory via Skype, as well as online courses and video lessons.
I enjoy teaching students in a fun but progressive way, using a structure that suits each individual student, whether that be studying their favourite songs, and using those recognizable songs as a study of practical techniques and music theory, or introducing my own direction of learning.
When teaching guitar and bass, I specialize in rock, pop, blues and metal styles up to and including grade 8. I can also offer tuition in classical and flamenco guitar at beginner level. With the ukulele, I can teach modern styles and popular songs, but also assist in the study of traditional Polynesian, Hawaiian, Tahitian and Maori techniques.
If needed, I can prepare students for their grade exams, or use the grade syllabus as a teaching structure without entering the exam. I use syllabuses from ABRSM, Rockschool, London College of Music and Trinity College London.

Costs of pre recorded online courses are available on request.
I teach online, and therefore can teach students from many locations globally, and in many time zones, day and night.
I conduct all lessons, homework and correspondence in the English language. However, there may be some references to Spanish song names and lyrics as part of study of Flamenco guitar, and likewise, the study of some ukulele styles may refer to song names and lyrics in some Polynesian languages. Also, much of music theory is written in Italian.
As part of the learning process, I will email the student some of the main points covered in the lesson, as well as homework if necessary. This will include tablature and chord diagrams so it would help the student if they have a program on their device which allows them to view PDF documents.
I will endeavour to set homework for students if needed to keep up the learning momentum in between lessons, and I would be happy to receive emails from the student at any time regarding this homework and any related queries.
I kindly ask that, in the event that a student cant make a lesson, they inform me at least 24 hours before the lesson.
I am a member of the Musicians Union, an associate member of the Registry of Guitar Tutors, and have public liability insurance.
