I teach classical guitar students on a private basis during the evenings and weekends, and was formerly a member of the music teaching staff with York City Council’s Music Service as a peripatetic and ensemble leader. I specialise in teaching children and young people aged 5 to 16, am DBS checked, and am a qualified primary school teacher. Since 2010 have entered students for over 300 music examinations (with a 100% pass rate and a high number of distinctions).
I encourage students to take part in wider classical guitar events, and organise workshops, masterclasses and concerts with professional performers and concert artists. Current and past students have performed in masterclasses and workshops with performers such as Craig Ogden, Gary Ryan and Giulio Tampalini – images of some of these are below.
Testimonials from current and former students are available. At this time, I work with only a small number of students on a private basis. Please contact me for availability.
