I did, however, enjoy thrashing around on my brother’s electric guitar at home, and after a while he got so sick of the racket I was making that he decided to teach me some chords. I toughened my fingers up a bit on my brothers electric guitar before moving on to his acoustic, twelve string and bass. On leaving school I studied piano, electric guitar, classical guitar, folk guitar, percussion, music theory and songwriting at Morley College, London (where I was later to become the tutor for both the classical and folk guitar courses). I also started another band, The Glass Tears, a psychedelic rock outfit playing our own original songs.
During my studies I joined the Pandemonium steel-pan jazz-rock orchestra as lead guitarist, playing some fun gigs, including the Radio One Roadshow.
On graduating from college, I studied classical music at Kingston University, specialising in performance and composition. After graduating from Kingston with honours, I continued performing as a solo act and with various bands including ‘Dangerland’, my first proper function band! I was also very lucky to have the opportunity to spend seven years teaching guitar at some of the best prep schools in the Greater London area. Performing in Beirut in the summer of 2012, just as the Syrian conflict was erupting, was a very moving experience for me.


When I’m not performing, I teach Adults privately from my home studio in London, and Online Via Skype.
My older brother played in a punk band, and there were several guitars knocking around the house. During my time with the Tears, I was also making a living from busking on the London Underground and in London’s Leicester Square. Resolving to study music in more depth, I enrolled on an intensive music course at Merton College, Greater London. I was also playing in a jazz duo with a pianist, and teaching guitar voluntarily in London primary and secondary schools to gain some experience in teaching children. I also formed a ‘Madchester’ band for a one-week-only stint at an English pub in Nice – playing for two hours every night to an aggressive, drunken mob!
I was responsible for taking the children through their grades, preparing them for school concert recitals and running school bands and guitar ensembles. I sing lead and backing vocals in addition to playing lead, rhythm, bass and synthesizer guitar. I enjoy the challenge of igniting a spark in my pupils and inspiring them to reach their full potential.


It was during this time that I began my guitar Teaching career, as people would stop me and ask for lessons.
During my three years there I practiced for six hours a day to brush up on my guitar and piano skills, and learned how to write and arrange for orchestra, choirs and bands.
I have performed extensively with these bands and others across the UK and Europe, Lebanon and Australia. I studied classical guitar for a couple of years, but the music didn’t excite me and I eventually lost interest. I sang tenor in the choir (I’ve always enjoyed belting out a song!), presented solo recitals on the classical guitar, and performed live with several bands and ensembles.
Highlights include playing to 3000 people at ‘Boogie In The Park’ in Bedford with Ultimate Beatles in the summer of 2005, and 7,000 at Music On The Moor in Hemel Hempstead the following year.
