GUITARIST & INSTRUCTOR
ELECTRIC BLUES & JAZZ
Countless research shows that music changes what we feel, how we think and how we act. My easy-listening style of playing is centred around creating a soft background ambience with smooth jazz and blues improvisation to bring a refined quality to a wide range of events and occasions.
My earliest musical memories were of listening to Pink Floyd in a state of awe and amazement but it was the song Comfortably Numb that truly spoke to me. It was then that I realised how music can influence our emotions and where my own guitar journey began.
My dedication to music took a scientific turn in my early 20s when studying for my psychology degree at the University Of East Anglia, which continues to shape the way I play and how I teach my students to this day. I discovered more effective practice techniques based on brain functionality, exciting new ways to stimulate faster learning as well as how businesses and brands can utilise music to their commercial advantage.
Fast forward to 2022, I have a range of clients that invite me to perform at their events as well guitar students that I teach to help them push their playing to the next level.
