Why do you love guitar? Your belief and teaching philosophy? Why do you love music?

“Every student is different in the way that they learn and practice and I find it really important to cater to the individual students as opposed to using a one size fits all approach.”

Since my teen years I have had a love of teaching and tutoring music to a wide range of people and I love seeing how students progress and better themselves on their instruments. To me the bass guitar is a very under rated instrument. I always felt a strong attachment to music that had a strong feel and groove. upon listening to this music I discovered that the bass guitar was tool in which this groove and feel was created. The deeper I have delved into the bass I have found the almost unlimited potential of what the instrument is capable of.

Similarly to the bass, the guitar is another instrument with unlimited potential. Rock, jazz, pop, classical and many other genres of music can sound beautiful played on the guitar. I love how the guitar can be used as a lead instrument in a band all the way to a subtle backing for a vocalist to sing over and it’s that sort of musical flexibility I love exploring on the guitar.

As well as guitar lessons, we also teach drums, piano, keyboard, vocal, pipa, guzheng, and other private lessons.
