About Me

I am an experienced and dedicated Primary/Secondary School to Sixth Form music guitar tutor who is passionate about teaching children to young people and adults. I believe that every child should have the opportunity to learn an instrument. I believe that this is crucial to their development as it builds confidence, self-esteem and is an excellent therapeutic and educational tool.

I am trained in Classical, Flamenco, Pop/Rock guitar, bass guitar, and have a wealth of teaching experience, both in private tutoring and within group settings. I have a degree in Music Composition from London College of Music and have had many years of formal training of Segovia’s and Pujol’s technique from the late Dr. Ron Purcell (student of Andrés Segovia & Emilio Pujol and Head of the Classical Guitar Department at California State University of Northridge). In addition, I have been performing and recording professionally for 20 years with artists on international tours and within studio sessions. This experience has equipped me to prepare students for performance, and is one of the aspects of teaching I really enjoy.

I have been teaching guitar for the past 17 years, both in America and the UK, to students within private, small group and classroom settings from beginner to grade 8 and above. I have taught extensively within school settings and recreational centers. Over the past 3 - 4 years I have taught guitar, bass, drum kit, ukulele, music theory and music technology at all levels.

I currently work part-time for Bird College and Ark Globe Academy. I teach to children in year 3 to Sixth Form private peripatetic guitar, bass, ukulele, and music theory, as well as larger group guitar classes. This teaching includes Trinity, RGT, ABRSM and Rock School syllabuses. I have also taught at Ark Wembley, Ark All Saints and Ark Bolingbroke Academy for 3 years, where I have trained students for GCSE exams and performances, led guitar classes, Music Tech Duke of Edinburgh workshops and my own enrichment guitar clubs in musical styles of Rock, Blues and Classical Guitar.

I consider my main strengths in teaching are patience, setting clear boundaries, organization, providing a nurturing and thriving teaching environment and the ability to motivate and empower students to achieve their full potential. My ability in teaching with a dynamic, engaging and passion about engaging younger instrumentalists is what encourages pupils. As a member of a music department, my main abilities are in demonstrating high levels of musicianship, high professional standards, excellent timekeeping and communication skills whilst as an enthusiastic team player who is able to use my own initiative while inspiring children with a love for music.

As a versatile teacher and highly skilled guitarists in many different styles, I use books from all syllabuses and my iPad. Depending on what the student wishes to learn, I teach from personal charts located in my Pinterest account (Fabrice Favre), of which you are very welcome to view, to using tablature in www.songsterr.com or if the student wishes to learn from music notation I teach this strictly from the books. All of these great resources are always with me to every lesson carried in my personal bag. Whether it be classical, flamenco, blues, rock or jazz, I am able to teach them all.

I currently hold an up to date enhanced DBS and am registered as self employed in the UK. I am trained every year in Safe Guarding and GDPR in both of my jobs. I am available to start immediately on Mondays and Thursdays.
