In addition to my teaching at the University of York, University of Huddersfield and Loughborough University, I also give private lessons to intermediate and advanced guitar pupils in both the Leicester, York and Huddersfield areas.

In my teaching I emphasise a strong technical foundation, but always at the service of creative and joyous music-making--my goal is to help the student achieve their musical goals and discover their musical potential. My current students include keen amateurs, university students with professional aspirations as well as professional guitarists with special interests in areas of contemporary repertoire or improvisation/composition. I also teach theory and composition on a private basis.

If you're in the Leicester or York areas and are interested in having guitar lessons with me, please email me. Lessons can be arranged on a weekly, bi-weekly or "one-off" basis.
