I teach guitar, violin, and ukulele in a fun and inspiring manner. I also teach my speed learning concepts to help you better and faster and to have fun at the same time whilst learning your favourite

Methodology

I assess what style of music you enjoy and cater the lessons based on your personal musical goals. I use my various techniques for learning to play better, faster and to retain the knowledge so that you can see yourself progressing quickly also.

Background

I have been a professional touring, recording and composing musician for the past 20 years. I have toured and recorded with many groups from all genres of music ranging from pop, rock, classical, country and jazz. I have also been teaching for over 20 years and have developed my unique teaching methods which yield fast results when practiced on a regular basis.
