I normally give half-hour lessons, because I find that this gives the best value. I charge £17 per half-hour lesson.

Experienced teacher

I have been teaching music since 2005, both privately and at the Young Arbury Music Makers, where I was the  Musical Director for five years.

Experienced player

I’ve played in many different styles - rock, pop, funk, jazz, folk and others. See the photos on this page for some of the bands I’ve played with.

Free introductory session.

I’d like to help you find your inner musician. To do that, I need to know your taste in music and what you want to do. You need to know who I am and what it feels like to have a lesson with me. So bring your instrument and have a chat.

Why don’t you get in touch and arrange a free meeting?

“I'd like to say a huge thank you for the bass lessons a year or so ago now.

I managed to sit in on a track with some professional musicians at a session on Monday evening (these guys wrote a track that is practically a household name!) and without your lessons (especially on timing and feel) I would not have had the confidence or ability to step up and play.”
