I attended the Yamaha Jazz Summer School in Falmouth as an assistant tutor in 2014, teaching a range of pupils of all ages and abilities. I have had a number of private students, and completed a module in music tuition during my studies at Leeds College of Music.

Teaching Style

I always try to relate what is covered in lessons to performance situations, and will aim to explain how lesson topics can be applied in a range of situations.


I am happy to guide students through grade exams but also happy to focus on particular aspects a student may want to work on outside of these syllabuses. I am most familiar with the Rockschool syllabus for electric bass, but am also an experienced double bass player.


I specialise in jazz, in particular the construction of bass lines and solos over chord changes. I am also comfortable teaching essential core fundamental skills, such as technique, scale/fingerboard knowledge, harmonic knowledge, sight reading, ear training, time-feel, recommended listening, practice tips and composition.

Other Services, Areas of Knowledge & Musicianship

I am able to provide students with hand outs and will be able to design and recommend exercises to students to help practice topics covered in lessons. I also have experience teaching students within an ensemble setting, and would be comfortable leading a workshop/rehearsal for an ensemble.

Teaching Location

I am based in Headingley, Leeds but am happy to travel to students houses.
