Personal Statement

I have a structured and comprehensive approach to teaching. I believe that it's as important to understand "why" as it is "what", and I explain everything slowly and carefully. I have written exam material for the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, but I don't push exams - they're a challenge that not everyone wants. I offer some unique opportunities for progression, and I run two guitar ensembles that make guitar playing really fun.
