I can break down all the essential aspects of guitar and musicianship in a clear, methodical and practical way – harmony, melody, rhythm, improvisation, ear training, specialised techniques, song-writing and music theory.
I have knowledge of a wide variety of genres: from early 1900’s popular music, to 40’s and 50’s rhythm and blues, to modern day styles and beyond. My own playing is rooted particularly in blues, ragtime, jazz and country.
I also draw inspiration from numerous types of folk music from around the world, particularly Greek, Celtic and African. I encourage my students to find out what their personal goals are and what music they like. We will patiently and thoroughly work together toward acquiring all the necessary skills, while having a lot of fun in the process!
