I have been playing guitar for 30 years and have been a professional full time musician and teacher for the past 20 years, working from my home and in private colleges.
My main passion has always been blues-rock music and i have been playing in bands of this style for the past 25 years, my many hundreds of gigs range from small club and pub type venues to large open air music and biker festivals performing to thousands both home and abroad.
I am a registered Guitar Tutor with the RGT in England and have put many of my students through the London College of Music electric guitar grades and have a 100% pass rate.
I am still passionate about playing and teaching blues rock guitar and have put together a web site (see link) for anyone interested in taking a look.
