I started playing guitar at the age of 11, beginning at the Spanish Guitar Centre, Leicester Square, London. Later I studied at the Guildhall School of Music, and individually with Julian Byzantine. In 1987 I gained a performers diploma.For more than 20 years I have taught the Guitar, in London, Hertfordshire and Kent. I am a member of the London Mandolin Orchestra. I love the music of South America and hope that my compositions reflect this influence. I teach Guitar, Bass Guitar, Mandolin, and Music Theory.
