Where

I teach at my home in north London and online. I use Whereby.com, Skype, Zoom or Facetime for online lessons. 

Contact

Use my contact form if you'd like to arrange a lesson.

How

I will email you PDF files of all material. 

You don't need any special equipment although headphones are useful and a microphone will help to improve sound quality. 

‚Äč

I use 2 cameras, one pointed at my guitar so you can see close-ups of my left and right hands. I can also send you impromptu recordings of what we are working on using Whatsapp or email. 

Styles

I teach classical guitar, acoustic fingerstyles and various electric guitar styles. I teach beginners to advanced players and I like to combine styles into a comprehensive and flexible approach, tailor-made to your tastes and talents. 

Material

I have produced extensive original teaching material, plus transcriptions and arrangements of popular classics. Classical music can be supplemented by my published pieces.

Composition & Improvisation

From the moment you learn your first scale or chord I will encourage and guide you to improvise and compose using various techniques and approaches.  We will explore the material your are learning to play by composing and/or improvising around similar ideas or techniques.
