About me: I moved to London in 2016 from Melbourne in order to immerse myself in a different part of the world and expand my experience of life and music. I hold a Masters degree in Music Performance from Melbourne University (Victorian College of the Arts). I’ve been a professional guitar and freelance musician for 20 years. I’ve also taught at all levels for the same amount of time. Most recently I was lecturer and guitar tutor at Melbourne Polytechnic and Collarts, both in Melbourne, Australia.
I have experience teaching beginners of all ages and advanced players (of all ages). I am very patient and believe in helping all students enjoy the process of learning the guitar – it’s worth it!
