Bass Guitar ability
Influences: Stones, Blues, Jazz, Theatre
I began playing piano at the age of eight and later moved on to bass guitar . I taught myself to read music and have a good understanding of how to improvise on all the instruments I play. A lot of my musical experience is based on playing in band situations and I have worked in the orchestra on the QE2 and played at Ronnie Scotts in London.
More recently I have been teaching in one to one and group situations with the emphasis being on a group production at the end of the course. This has involved a lot of work with guitar and with vocals.
My own recent musical activity has involved playing in jazz big bands, guitar duos and fronting my own rock/blues trio.
