Fun guitar lessons for all ages and abilities with a British session guitarist based in LA

Methodology

I thoroughly enjoy teaching students of all ages because I can relate to students who are learning and trying to progress in their instrument as I can remember being in their position when I started learning music. Seeing students progress and improve as a result of helping them, I find to be one of the most rewarding aspects for me personally. It’s never too late to start learning no matter what age you are.

Essential skills are taught but lessons are tailored around what the students want to learn (otherwise lessons wouldn’t be fun!) and I can also help students prepare for auditions and give advice from first hand experience with the business aspects of the music industry.

Background

I am a British session guitarist now living in Los Angeles.

Being inspired to pick up the guitar after binging on my brother’s music collection, I enrolled at The Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM) in Guildford in the U.K. In my first year, I gained a diploma in Contemporary Popular Music Performance with a Distinction and was also an award winning guitarist with a year’s endorsement to Ernie Ball.

More recently I have recorded for Terry McDermott (runner up on The Voice) with x4 Grammy winning Duran Duran producer John Jones and have recorded on a number of projects with one of Pink Floyd’s engineer/producers at a major LA recording studio, including a session with Steve Ferrone. I was also involved in an extensive European tour with Queen Kwong who’s members include Wes Borland (Limp Bizkit), Fred Sablan (Marilyn Manson), Carré Callaway and Hayden C. Scott.

I have also been working with a music publisher on a global basis, which include writing credits on songs which have gained national radio air play and charted at the top spot in various iTunes charts (globally) as well as working with an LA based company composing film music and have had placements on major networks such as MTV.
