About Me

I grew up in a musical family and have been playing stringed instruments 'by ear' since the age of 8.

The instruments I can play include guitar, ukulele, five-string banjo, mandolin, piano, jaws harp, harmonica and drums. I also enjoy singing.

I was a professional musician in my 20s and 30s but retired from the circuit to teach. I have been teaching full-time for 12 years.

Some of my musical influences and favourite musicians are Stevie Ray Vaughan, Tommy Emmanuel, Phil Emmanuel, Steve Vai, Stray Cats, Mark Knopfler, Chet Atkins, ZZ Top and Gary Moore.

In general, I love music and enjoy sharing my musical skills with others!
