About me

Some Bio:

three guitars aI have been playing guitar since my teens. After a number of years of playing in bands and performing at open mic nights, I decided to take up lessons with a professional RGT tutor. For me, this was like someone had taken the blinkers from my eyes. I’m thankful for the Registry of Guitar Tutors (RGT) who guided me into a deeper understanding of the guitar and music itself.

I progressed through the RGT/London College of Music (LCM) grades system till I gained a grade 8 distinction.  I went on to take the Licentiate Guitar Teachers Diploma.  I am now not only a RGT registered guitar tutor, but also an RGT/LCM guitar examiner. I am also a singer/songwriter and occasionally perform locally with my wife in our Duo called Sweet Joni. I’ve also gained a Finalist position in the UK Songwriting Contest (Brit Trust) with one of my instrumental compositions.

I have taught a variety of subjects in schools and then as a peripatetic guitar teacher. I am a qualified teacher with a PGCE and an enhanced DBS. Lessons take place at my home studio in Torquay and parents/guardians of children are welcome to sit in on the lessons.

I like to make my teaching current and tailored to each student individually.  This means that each student will be given the chance to learn songs that they love and to progress at their own pace.
