I am a professional Guitarist, Singer, Songwriter and Producer and have been in the music industry now for the past 5 years. As a musician I have toured the UK and Europe alongside artists such as; Kasabian, Keane, FightStar, Ash, The Subways, Supergrass and many more including festival and live radio performances along the way.

I have a wealth of experience as a music tutor, teaching people of all ages as well as different styles of musical genres. Some students have gone on to take graded music exams and passed with flying colours, others just playing fun and enjoyment.

As a songwriter credits include; Grand Theft Auto, BBC Radio, XFM, SkySports and ESPN America etc. As well as albums and singles released throughout the UK, Europe and Japan.

I have my own recording studio in Bradford where I produce my own and other artists' music. I like to teach from the studio as it provides a totally professional environment for students to learn in, standing them in good stead on the way to starting their journey in music.

Teaching Style

My teaching style is professional yet laid back and patient. This helps give students a wide range of skills, techniques, confidence and also exam grades if they wish. I also think it highly important for lessons to be fun and relaxed enabling students to be creative and get the most out of playing their chosen instruments.

Teaching in Recording studio enables me to record lessons for the student to take home, making this process a much easier way to practice and progress in between lessons.

I can teach a variety of styles and genres from Indie, Rock and Punk through to Blues, Acoustic / Folk and Pop etc. I teach Guitar and Bass as well as Vocal Coaching.


I teach the latest '2012 - 2018 Rock School' Syllabuses for Guitar, Bass and Vocals...

Rockschool was accredited in England, Wales and Northern Ireland by the QCA in 2002. All of Rockschool's qualifications are on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF), which means candidates can be assured of receiving a recognised qualification.

Grade Exams, 6, 7 and 8 across each syllabus, are worth UCAS points.


My areas of specialty are: Guitar, Bass and Vocals. I have professional experience in these areas from being involved in the music industry and like to pass these on to students.

Topics covered in lessons include:
Warm Up Techniques, Chord Progressions, Scales, Reading / Writing Music, Composition, Music Performance, Music Industry Knowledge and Recording Music etc.

Other Services, Areas of Knowledge & Musicianship

I like to pass on music performance skills to students to help build their confidence as well as help them when they start to play in bands / perform live.

I have in depth experience of the Music Industry which I like to pass on to students and I can also provide 'Music Industry Workshops' for musicians looking at making it in the industry and becoming professional musicians.

I have experience of being a Music Producer and again I am happy to pass this on to students in lessons as well as give training in 'Music Production Workshops'.

Teaching location

I like to teach students from my Recording Studio based in Bradford, which has easy links to Bradford, Leeds and surrounding areas.

Alternatively I am happy to travel to you / teach you on location in the following areas; Bradford, Leeds, Halifax, Huddersfield etc.
