About Me

PROFESSIONAL GUITAR TUTOR

I offer friendly & patient guitar lessons

I am a Guitar Tutor based in County Durham, UK.

Since picking up the guitar at the age of 15 from being inspired by the likes of David Gilmour, Jimmy Page and Jimi Hendrix, I have continued to pursue guitar and teaching to a professional level.

In 2012 I gained the accolade of Marshall Amplification’s ‘Guitarist of The Year’ after my band Spectrum played at their headquarters. I am now teaching full time in Primary education.

In 2018 I began recording with Circa ‘69 - we have released two singles / videos and had one song featured on BBC for opening of the Snooker Championship Finals.

I have released 2 ‘Chillhop’ albums under Pointy Features - reaching 100,000 streams in 3 months. This continues to be something I am working on throughout 2019.

Alongside this, I am teaching full time in Primary education.

Circa ‘69 - Sonder

This track was released October, 2018 as the second single for Circa ‘69. All music and lyrics were written by myself. We were lucky enough to have this track featured on BBC’s coverage of the World Championship Snooker in Winter 2018.

More tracks are scheduled for release throughout 2019.
