I’ve been playing guitar for 15 years and playing/gigging for the majority of that time. Since completing a Bachelor of Music in 2007 at the CPIT Jazz School I’ve taught guitar to people of all levels and all styles along with giving lessons in song writing and theory.In addition to teaching privately I’ve taught within local schools.

In recent years my focus has been on my band The Response which you can check out here

Every student is different so I cater to what you are wanting to achieve. If you want to be a great jazz guitarist I’ll slam you with theory and exercises. If you want to record the next big NZ hit (no guarantees) then we can focus on song writing and recording that single or demo. I’ve had students come for just a handful of lessons to help them get over that next hurdle in their playing and I’ve had students with me for 7 years as they grow up playing guitar.
