I moved to Ireland in June 2020 with my Irish/South African wife. Shortly after arriving here I completed my Grade 6 exam in acoustic guitar with Trinity College London. In September 2021 I began my diploma in Guitar Performance at the British and Irish Modern Music Institute (BIMM). I began offering my lessons online partly due to covid, and partly due to student preference. My face-to-face lessons (when government guidelines permit) are at my home in Wicklow Town.
I grew up in Cape Town, where my older brother taught me how to play guitar during my high school years. I also followed online guitar tutorials to develop my skills. After high school I joined a band called The Short Cuts and we played at places like Mercury Live in Cape Town’s CBD and at Gandalfs in Observatory.
I started teaching guitar in 2012, and since then I have created lessons that are easy to follow and help in the development of various guitar skills, applied to popular songs from many different genres.
