About Me

I am a professional guitarist and guitar teacher based in the Colchester area.

I have 15 years experience teaching the guitar at all levels, both privately and in colleges and schools and have also worked for Trinity College Press, recording and editing pieces from Grades 1-8 for the 2019 Acoustic guitar syllabus.

If you are looking for a session musician or for guitar lessons, I am a versatile guitarist with 30 years of playing and performance experience. I am competent in many styles and disciplines from theatre work and live performance to studio recording and vocal accompaniment but specialise in Jazz and Gypsy Jazz guitar.

If you are looking for music for an event, party or wedding, I regularly perform as a jazz guitar soloist or with a number of ensembles of various sizes from jazz duo upward. I can provide appropriate music for the tone of your event and ensure a professional service.
