W elcome to my website. I am a guitarist, teacher and writer and have recently relocated to Bancyfelin near Carmarthen after many enjoyable years performing and teaching in and around Wiltshire.
Since graduating from Dartington College of Arts, I have taught guitar and bass in many schools and privately whilst also performing with bands and projects ranging from rock, blues, classical and folk to '60s soul, jazz and progressive rock.
    Having previously built and run my own studio in Wiltshire I'm thoroughly excited to be beginning new adventures in the beautiful surroundings of Carmarthenshire.

New Pastures...

From Wiltshire to Wales

We've finally made the move from Warminster to Carmarthenshire after a summer of packing, DIY, last gigs and final lessons. There's lots to do to get up and running at the new house including dry-lining, insulating and installing the new studio so I'll be working from a temporary space for a while.

In the meantime, I'd like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all my students, recording clients, musical collaborators and fellow tutors for making the last few years in Wiltshire so fantastic :-)

Huge congratulations to the latest batch of students to take RGT grade exams! Ryan (Grade 7 Bass), Aaron and Jake (both Grade 5 Elecric Guitar) all achieved 'Passes with Distinction' despite a busy summer of GCSE and A Level exams and performances in various bands and projects.

Studio up and running

it's nice to be home

The studio construction was finished in August and I managed to move in just in time before the start of the new school term.

So far, it's turning out to be a fantastic teaching space and the sound proofing is much better than I expected. And I've already had my first recording booking..!
