And with over twenty five years' experience, I believe my teaching methods will help you to achieve your goals in a shorter period, hence giving you better value for money.


As a full-time guitar tutor, I can also offer the additional benefit of being more flexible in terms of the lesson times, so you can learn at a time convenient for you.


Music has always been a passion of mine and an active part of my life, and away from teaching, I spent several years on the pro circuit, including with the band Jonus in the late 90s. Currently, I am part of a professional Jazz four piece - "Bande a Part"(see )


I am also a  member of the Registry of Guitar Tutors which enables me to offer the London College of Music grades to my students.


I act as a guitar teacher for students all over Kent, with many students coming from the immediate local areas of Sittingbourne, Sheerness, Newington, Gillingham, Rainham, Maidstone and Faversham.
