Hello and welcome to this page that my friend, graphic designer, Mike Adams designed for me to advertise my music. All my life music has played a large part in everything that I do and although I followed a largely military career, albeit sometimes a little erratic, my guitar has never been far away. For a time the site was hard to access without a Mac until Indian expert Swagat Mishra rescued it and now I have a forum in which I can offer some glimpses of my musical life, in words, images and sound, for which I am truly grateful.
The style of unaccompanied jazz guitar that I play has taken me many years of study and practice to reach a level at which I feel justified in offering my services as a provider of live music for dinners, weddings, garden parties, barbecues and corporate functions to provide live background or incidental music at an affordable rate. With a repertoire of popular standards and evergreens, Latin American hits, classic favourites and original jazz greats the music is guaranteed to provide continuity to your event in an unobtrusive manner. No vocals, no backing tracks, just good, live, music.
Currently based in Waterlooville, Hampshire I am quite happy to travel any reasonable distance to a venue for a minimal expense. Additional musicians can be made available to order if required to provide music for dancing and general festivities. If you would like a quotation for my services please contact me as indicated overleaf.
As a teacher I have many years experience in guitar tuition at all levels in schools, colleges and privately and should you require it I will be happy to discuss your needs and tailor-make a course of lessons that will satisfy them either by one-to-one tuition or ‘distance learning’ as appropriate. No matter how old, clumsy or disfunctional you are I can teach you to play the guitar. Many of my former students are now teachers themselves.
