I began learning to play the guitar whilst still at high school, and have been performing on the guitar since my late teens. I enrolled to study Jazz and Popular music when I was 20 years old and after a one year course enrolled on the HND Jazz course for a further two years. Since Graduating I’ve been working full time as a professional guitarist and guitar teacher.
My influences for starting this musical mission were the likes of Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, and The Rolling Stones etc but when I attended college I discovered the awesome Wes Montgomery, Kenny Burrell, Herb Ellis and Martin Taylor etc.
However if there is guitar in it I’m happy!!!!! Whether it’s Guns and Roses, Pink Floyd, Jack Johnson, or the Arctic Monkeys I doubt there is enough web space to list all the amazing artists who inspire me.
I am extremely thankful and grateful that I am able to share my enthusiasm for this amazing instrument with students everyday of the week (except Sundays!!!!)
I have played in various different bands, in nearly every genre performing hundreds of gigs at everything from pubs and restaurants to providing music at wedding receptions and private functions.
I am busy playing with:
JS2 a highly energetic duo performing a great selection of Pop, Rock and Soul
and I accompany Julie Schatzberger (Jazz Vocalist) in the Julie Schatzberger Duo
I also perform in other functions bands playing weddings and corporate functions.
Please Contact me if you wish to book any of these for your Wedding, Function or Venue.
