About me

I have 30 years’ experience in playing music. Starting out on the electric guitar at 5 years old and subsequently learning classical guitar, bass guitar, mandolin, and ukulele. I studied the bass at one of London’s finest popular music schools, the London College of Music, where I received first-hand tuition from some of the UK’s best musicians. I use their techniques in my teaching to this day.

I am a session musician, playing in bands ranging from live drum and bass to rock, blues, and folk. I tour, record, and play festivals. This keeps my passion for teaching alive and fresh.

My love for teaching has continued to grow since co-founding a community arts project in 2002. These days I teach in primary schools, secondary schools, and colleges. I work as a mentor for Lancashire Music Service helping new teachers with their role.
