His selection of Spanish and Classical guitar playing has earned him a reputation for polished musical performances throughout the UK.

He was first inspired to play the classical guitar when, at the age of 7 he heard the great Andres Segovia perform at the Theatre Royal in Norwich . After the performance the great man patted him on the head and it is thought that a little of the magic may have rubbed of (if only!) After that inspirational encounter, he went on to study with Bob Parslow in Norwich before moving on to the Colchester Institute under David Miller, where he gained a BA Hons in Music. From there he went on to study with Gerald Lee at the Guildhall School of Music to earn a Certificate of Advanced Solo Studies and LGSM.

As a classical guitarist he has earned a reputation for polished musical performances characterised by a beguiling tone and sensitive interpretations.. His recordings, which include the premiere recording of Sir Malcolm Arnold's Fantasy, have been broadcast on Classic FM and BBC Radio 3. His recent performances of concertos by Giuliani and Vivaldi were met with wide acclaim , as was his solo recital in Woodbridge which drew rave reviews in the press.

Weddings and functions
His selection of light classical music from Spain and South America has been well received in recitals and functions ranging from weddings and anniversaries to garden parties.
He has many years of experience playing for weddings and corporate events performing at several prestigious venues including the Ritz, Leez Priory and Le Talbooth, and ranging from cruise ships to more intimate garden parties.

Guitar and other instruments
His wide knowledge of the repertoire has enabled him to work with many other instrumentalists combining with flute, violin, mandolin or other guitarists .

Tuition
As a teacher, his experience has enabled him to work at some of the finest schools in the country, including Colchester Royal Grammar School and the Girl's County High School, Woodbridge School and the Abbey School, and Orwell Park School. In all of these establishments he is able to offer tuition on both electric and classical guitar as well as helping out in school productions and concerts. He has recently formed the Colchester Youth Guitar Ensemble which is an exciting new venture which brings 23 young guitarists together, drawn from across Essex and Suffolk. One of the main aims of the ensemble is to provide valuable experience for young guitarists who rarely have the opportunity to play in orchestras, and so enhance their skills as musicians and also have some fun.
