I cover a wide range of styles from acoustic folky fingerpicking and strumming to classic rock styles, pop, jazz, soul and funk both as a teacher and guitar player. I would be more than happy to teach you to play guitar if you are interested in rapidly advancing your learning with an intuitive ‘hands on’ approach based around your favourite songs and styles. The amount of theory you are offered is up to you and the main focus will be on practical application and ‘playing to learn.

STARTS AT Private £20.00 / 30 Mins Private £ --.--- / Session Private £ --.--- /Course
"...a highly experienced musician, tutor & multi-instrumentalist..." As a professional musician & multi-instrumentalist who has been performing live for almost fourteen years in various successful original & cover bands, I've gained experience in many musical fields. Including composing, performing, recording & producing music with The Sub Rosas, I have spent time with bands in rehearsal & recording studios using industry standard equipment & processes while serving more of an engineer & producer role. Acting as a session player for bands has encouraged me to become a more rounded musician, a more confident performer & a more tasteful & creative player, playing to compliment each individual song. This has led to being booked to play at some prestigious venues including Dingwalls (Camden, London), Fairfield Halls (Croydon, London), Old Trafford (Manchester, Lancashire) & The Trump Tower (Istanbul, Turkey).

  • There are two major types of guitars: Acoustic guitar and electric guitar.

About Brixton

Brixton, formerly Brixistane, is a London district in the borough of Lambeth in south London. A series of Brixton murals by local artists can be seen throughout the area, depicting politics, community, and ideas. Though many are in a state of disrepair, some such as the Slade Gardens Mural, Stockwell War Memorial, Brixton Academy Mural, and the Original Windmill Mural can still be seen. Brixton is the unofficial capital of the British African-Caribbean community in London due to approximately 24 percent of the population being of African or Caribbean descent.

Religious sites in Brixton include Christian churches like the Grade II listed St Matthew's Church on Brixton Green, which was one of the "Waterloo churches" built in celebration of Britain's victory at the Battle of Waterloo.
