Welcome This site is intended, first and foremost, for use by all my students. If you are not currently studying with me, either in a school or privately and you would like to, please Contact me by either using the link at the bottom of the page or by clicking onto the contact page and I will get back to you by return.
From this site you will be able to download lots of scales and exercises and arrangements (in both music and tablature) that will help you in your study of the guitar and/or bass guitar. There are also articles about how to study guitar and links to other useful sites.
I wrote Mrs Mackerel's Wedding to celebrate the wedding of one of my students, Barry Pegram to his (now) wife Tricia on 5th July 2008.

In all my teaching I endeavour to take a student-centred approach. Each student will have different needs. Some want to become superstars, some just enjoy playing at home. Whatever the reason for taking up the instrument I will take the student from wherever he or she is and improve their skills to the limits of their ability. Some of my former students are currently working professionally as musicians, teachers or are in some way connected to the music industry.
