grade certificates

Grade success and video

Congratulations to Issy and Asher for passing their Grade 7 Acoustic and Grade 2 Rock guitar exams. A great result for both.

We recorded Issy playing one of her pieces – ‘The Way Home’ by Stuart Ryan. I’ve taught her since she was just six year’s old – very proud!

Loop Project Gigs in 2023

I’ll be playing a few London gigs throughout 2023 with my solo loop project. I’ll update this post with more gigs as they come. I’m also looking to release an EP soon.

  • Tue 19th Dec – Cart & Horses, Stratford – supporting Luna Marie EP release

New band video

Dix Neuf – a band that I tutor at school have made a music video for a track they have written. I helped them to create the parts, arrange the track, record it and edit the music video. It’s a rather spooky dream with a great twist at the end (and some superb acting!)

New Resources

There are now over 370 songs that I have ready to teach. New resources include a series of riffs based on the pentatonic scale and a series of bass riffs. I’m also adding electric and acoustic guitar songs in all genres constantly. You can view the full list here.

And as always, I’m happy to look up a new song for you that you might want to play. I have subscriptions to access high quality guitar sheet music and tabs.
