I first started teaching when I was seventeen as a way to make some money whilst at music college. I discovered that I loved teaching and it became the priority of my musical life. My first pupil gained 140 for his Grade 1 exam and I have never looked back.

Twenty five years later I spend my time juggling my duties as Head of Guitar and Contemporary Music at Canford School with my peripatetic teaching at Castle Court School and my flock of private pupils big and small. Past students have gone on to study at the Royal College of Music, BIMM London, Oxford & Cambridge Universities as well as simply having fun playing the guitar.
I give lessons around the Poole & Bournemouth area and travel to students homes to teach in the afternoon or early evening. I am DBS checked and a member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians. Lessons start at £16 for 30 minutes, £23 for 45 minutes and £30 for an hour.

I teach classical, acoustic and electric guitar from beginner (age 7 upwards) to post graduate level and offer theory of music tuition as a standard part of lessons.
