Classical and electric guitarist with 20 years experience

I've been playing the guitar for over 20 years and I have been a teacher for 12years.

I have played in a wide variety of orchestras, bands, duos, trio and ensembles. I am classically trained and achieved my grade 8 in guitar when I was 17. I have studied flamenco guitar in spain and have played the electric guitar in a number of function bands. I have a huge passion for teaching and I love seeing people learn, improve and develop their skill sets. I really enjoy hearing student feedback so please get in touch should you take any of my courses - I would love to hear from you!
