Exciting opportunities...

Guitar shouldn't be as insular a hobby as some people make it.

I can make your introduction into the world of guitar as fulfilling as it's possible to be.


Ensemble guitar

If you were learning bassoon or viola, you'd join an ensemble as soon as you could.

Although guitar can be played as a solo instrument, there's a wealth of music for guitar ensembles. Joining an ensemble will sharpen your solo playing by improving your rhythm, your listening skills, and by adding a social side to your hobby where mutual encouragement will lift you higher. I run 2 unique ensembles you can join...


Performance opportunities

I run two informal concerts each year for families and friends

I support the local Portsmouth Music Festival


Exam opportunities

It is entirely your choice whether you wish to work for the eight "graded exams" that the Music Schools offer.
