About Me

I have been playing guitar, bass and drums since 1982. Initially I took up the Classical Guitar, achieving Grade 8 (ABRSM) by age 18. I was also a keen student of the Electric Guitar, playing in several school bands and musicals.

I also studied the Bass Guitar to an advanced level on both four and five string variants. Alongside this, I was inspired (at school) to take up drums and percussion. I took classical percussion lessons, eventually achieving Grade 8 (Guildhall) on combined percussion.

I attended the South Nottinghamshire Music School on Saturdays, eventually leading the percussion sections in their Senior Concert Band and Symphony Orchestra. I progressed form here into Notts County Concert Band, and finally the Nottingham Philharmonic Orchestra, the regions leading amateur orchestra.

Following these early experiences, for the past 20 years I have played guitar, bass or drums in numerous professional and semi-pro bands, ranging from a flamenco/jazz nylon strung duo to several function/corporate/party bands, performing a vast selection of material at all manner of events and venues.

Teaching and performing music is my passion, and I count myself very fortunate to be able to make my living from doing what I enjoy most.

Away from music, I live with my wife and daughter in Mapperley, just north of Nottingham.
