Teaching since:
September 2012

Taking a collaborative approach, I will steer the lessons towards whatever your musical goals are, while moving at whatever pace you need. Progress is guaranteed as long as you have patience with yourself! I will create and print out/copy learning resources for you (theory, tabs, leadsheets, etc.), and I will also learn songs you want to be taught during my free time, so no chunk of the lesson is wasted!
