My student Ryan’s compositions (part 2)

My work with Roman Fields School student Ryan (who has only just finished GCSEs) is always so exciting – he seems to never stop coming up with new ideas for songs and has already created 4 tracks this term for his demo CD.

Guitarist’s ‘Memory’ Card Game (for beginners)

I’ve noticed that some of my younger guitar students seem to get very excited at the mention of playing a game! This is particularly true when they’ve been struggling with something, such as learning a new chord or piece, and want something a bit different to add variety to the lesson. Therefore with this in mind, I’ve created a…

My entry for JTC guitar solo contest 2015!

Here is my entry for the Jam Track Central Guitar Solo competition 2015!

Finding your own sound

‘I don’t care about the rules. In fact, if I don’t break the rules at least 10 times in every song then I’m not doing my job properly.’ – Jeff Beck. Whilst I can’t claim to ‘break the rules’ nearly as often as Jeff does, or even claim that I try to, I still enjoy…
