My professional education was through the institute of contemporary music and performance (ICMP), formally the guitar institute of technology. Here I successfully acquired a scholarship to study at the college, where I graduated with my diploma distinction and my grade 5, then in 1999 I successfully acquired my grade 8 with Rock school. The school was also supported by the prince’s trust.

My lessons have been established since 1995, and I have taught over 30,500 lessons over my 27 years of teaching guitar.
