My teaching studio based at ASCAPE STUDIOS in Bromley has been very busy with another large influx of new students this month which is encouraging for all things guitar. New students have ranged in abilities from beginner classical players to some more mature students who are looking to expand on the knowledge they have all ready acquired. My other students are busy preparing for their TRINITY College Music Exams so I want to wish them all the best of luck for their exam at the end of the month. Not all students wish to take exams but for those that do its a great way to progress on the instrument with an achievable goal at the end. The exam period occurs 3 time s year so if you are interested please get in touch and I would be happy to give you all the info you need.
My Home Teaching option is working out very well for students as it enables them to have lessons in their own home at a time that suits them. Do get in touch if you are interested in this option as i cover areas all around Bromley,Hayes Orpington and Chislehurst. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
This month I have been very busy gigging with my band Soul Grenades at several venues around London and the South East including Hootanannys in Brixton, Fox and Firkin in Lewisham and Pizza Express in Maidstone so keep a look on the website for info about up and coming gigs – SOUL GRENADES
Soul Grenades are finishing up our album currently and we have been back in the studio getting it finished so will let you know when it is complete.

I have also been out gigging with The RUBE GOLDBERG PROJECT which is a fantastic prog band broughtto life by the brilliant Jordan Brown. I have gigged with Jordan for several years and he asked me to play with them for the showcase of their album which i of course happily agreed to. The guys including Jordan, Lewis Jenkins on drums, Daniel Bowles on vocals and guitar and Richard on keys were an absolute pleasure to play with and top top musicians. The music was very hard (11/16 anyone!) but with only 1 full rehearsal we smashed the gig.
I was also asked to play in a production of Bugsy Malone this month at the Epsom Playhouse which was great fun. There was a lot of custard guns flying around and i took a bucket to the head that fell into the pit but it was a great production so well done all at Ewell School and thanks to Ben.
My function band Firefly have also been back in the studio recording some new demos for the new website and here I am with the wonderful Rosanna Colcough recording vocals and guitars. It was lovely to spend valentines day with her…..
A busy month playing music with wonderful people so thanks all. If you are interested in guitar lessons then do please feel free to get in touch even just to enquire and i will get back to you straight away.
