My goal is to inspire and educate individuals to become the musician they aspire to be. Working in a relaxed 1-1 environment we will cover musical skills that will be valuable to the individual. Making sure each lesson moves you one step closer to being the confident musician you can be!
Tailoring my teaching methods to suit personal interests we will look at; technique, theory, harmony, melody, rhythm and most of all to enjoy music. With over 15 years of professional experience I understand how every students musical journey is different. Working to your ability and building a lesson and practice schedule that works around you.
Having Studied jazz performance at Leeds College of Music, Classical Guitar to grade 8 and being a professional pop and rock guitarist, I am passionate about all styles of music. I am currently a teacher for Yorkshire Music Education Service, Pudsey Grangefield School and the Light House school which gives me experience in teaching individual or group lessons and working with people that have learning difficulties.
I endorse JJ Guitars and have been to the NAMM show in Los Angeles 3 times demonstrating the instruments. I also have a busy schedule as a performer across the country.
Please feel free to get in contact with any queries, I hope our musical paths cross soon!
I'm new to the guitar and have had 2 lessons with Joel so far. He's an encouraging teacher and has been very patient which I've appreciated. I have enjoyed his lessons and I'm looking forward to learning more.
