Hello and thanks for checking out my website! Amongst the mind-boggling amount of talented musicians on the interwebs, I’m very glad you’ve found me!
There are far worse ways to learn your instrument, than performing 6 nights a week on Cruise Ships, in 5 star hotels in the Middle East, clattering around the French Alps in a Van full of equipment, up and down the M25 to regular function and wedding gigs a few nights of the week, and above all, being a teacher who gets to impart these experiences and the all of the best information and lessons learned on a regular basis.
Before all these shenanigans, I began my professional journey at BIMM Brighton, where I obtained my Degree in Professional Musicianship (Huzzah!). There I studied with some wonderful tutors who taught me how to be a professional in a very competitive industry, and made friends and colleagues that I still work with to this day!
If all my experience has taught me anything, it’s that being a professional musician is more about being a friendly/humble/dedicated individual that people WANT to be around and work with. Be good. But be humble. A good sense of humour…and showering regularly helps too… I strive to uphold these qualities, give boundless energy, and actually have fun while I’m doing it.
My biggest strength is my ability to sing and play, which comes in the form of fronting bands and commanding audiences or offering slick harmonies and supporting the talent up front. Second to that, I have a wide and varied playing style that allows me to adapt to most musical situations: funk to rock to jazz to metal.
Between functions and session-work I also love imparting skills and music geekery – so please contact me for Bass Lessons (Don’t worry if you don’t live around Sussex (UK), I also offer Remote Lessons.
Please have a look around and get in contact if you’d like to know more about me. I’m always up for a jam, beer, or chat!
