I have been playing and studying the guitar for over 30 years and perform classical and contemporary music, well known film themes and laid back jazz standards. Over the years, I have also developed a number of music projects and played jazz, blues and rock as part of instrumental groups.

I am a Registered Guitar Tutor with the London College of Music (LCM). Find me at Freak Music Agency here
