December 2021

The last month has been very busy as I have been out on tour with Emily Capell as well as maintaining all my teaching commitments and a busy run of Christmas gigs. I also managed some downtime which is always welcome. My students are also all doing really well and keen to get their lessons started again (my inbox was full with students keen to get there weekly fix in) and I have had several students complete and pass their guitar exams which is great.

Emily Capell’s tour kicked off in November and saw us up and down the country playing to busy venues which is great to see especially with the current situation which has really had an effect on the ability to promote and complete a tour so thanks to everyone that came out.


My students have all been doing very well and as I mentioned several of them passed their guitar grades both classical and electric which is brilliant for them. Students can either focus on their classical exams that involve learning several pieces of music as well as learning to read music notation and the theory that goes with it. Some students like this approach but others go in for the Trinity Rock School exams which is still a graded music exam but focus more on contemporary music and “rocking out”!. I have a limited number of lesson spaces free so if you are interested then feel free to email me at for more info.


My band Soul Grenades also released our tongue in cheek Christmas song which involved silly costumes, mince pies and everything you would expect from SG. We also performed our 100th gig and had a blast and we are working on new music for 2022.

I also had the pleasure of playing some Carol Concerts with the incredible London Concert Chorus in aid of Bromley Mind which was a blast as well as gigs with Firefly featuring West End Star Emma Hatton and top band Flood The Floor.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and lets see what 2022 has to offer.

Thanks. K
