Experienced, Professional Guitar Tutor Available Now!

Hi, I'm a professional musician and teacher based in London. My main instruments are guitar, drums and mandolin. I have more than seven years teaching experience and over a decade’s experience playing music in professional performances in different cities around the world, including Seoul, Berlin and London.

I began playing the guitar at the age of fourteen, taking lessons from a family friend and starting a school band which played together regularly. After leaving school, I continued my musical education at university, further exploring the guitar as well as taking up the drums and mandolin.

In 2009 I moved to South Korea and formed the instrumental band Ether. We relocated to Berlin in 2013 and there I contributed to various gigs and musical projects in the city's extensive music scene.

In 2015, I moved to London and I am now drumming for a soul/funk band called 528 and a Beat.

I have a great love of all kinds of music, and I am experienced in playing many styles, from rock and blues to soul, funk, jazz and electronica.

I am also continuing to research different styles of music myself, such as improvisational music and traditional folk music of Eastern Europe and the Near East.

Teaching Experience:

I am a professional and qualified teacher of over seven years teaching experience. I have taught students of different ages and skill levels around the world.

I began my career teaching English as a foreign language, and my wide experience in this field informs the approach I take to teaching an instrument. I was a full-time teacher in South Korea for three years and I taught English as well as the drums and guitar as a freelance tutor in Berlin for a year.

I conduct lessons to the highest standards. My 120-hour CELTA course and Berlitz teacher training as well as my recent experience in a British Council accredited school in London mean I am familiar with many methods for successful teaching, assessment and feedback.

I am keen to further use my knowledge, skills and experience to help more students successfully learn a musical instrument.

Tutoring Approach:

Lessons are available in guitar, drums and mandolin.

In our first lesson, you’ll get an idea of what to expect from my course. I’ll learn a bit about you, what level you’re at and what you want to get out of the lessons. And most importantly, we’ll get you playing the instrument straight away.

In my opinion, the most important part of learning an instrument is to enjoy playing and be creative. I will tailor my lessons to your individual needs and tastes, and keep the right level of challenge in order to keep you steadily progressing.

Students of all ages, levels and abilities are welcome, including absolute beginners. If you’re not a beginner but you want to brush up on your playing, we’ll see where you’re at from the trial lesson. Feel free to get in touch if you have particular needs or interests.

To see the best progress, I recommend you take at least one lesson a week.

Normally, lessons are conducted in my home studio in Edmonton. However, I am more than happy to come to you. If you do want lessons at your location, remember that you will need your own equipment (drum kit or guitar). Also, transportation costs including travel time and ticket fare must be taken into account.
