My teaching approach is to provide direction and instruction as a guide for self learning. Everyone will have their personal ambitions or goals and my job is to help navigate in a realistic, supportive course of practice and study. I provide reliable information and a solid, fundamental skill-base from which to develop. My involvement as an instrumentalist performer will help in your own, personal, creative, exploration.
I began teaching at a very early stage of my learning of the guitar and have been involved continuously since then, helping everyone from Primary School children through Graduate Guitar Degree levels. My teaching environments have included music shops, community music schools, private home studio, music conservatory and regional schools both public and private. As a result of these varied, employed positions, I have taught a comprehensive range of students: including Primary School through High School (for SQA qualifications), Trinity/Guildhall and Associated Board exam levels, preparation for Conservatory auditions and Bachelor's and Master's Guitar Performance degrees. I have additionally taught the guitar enthusiast who may have a time limited schedule but enjoys learning and playing.
I offer guitar lessons to students of all ages and abilities. If you are interested in guitar lessons with me then I would be keen to discuss the possibilities with you.
