I offer a variety of bespoke workshops for beginners to advanced and everything in between. I am an experienced workshop leader capable of adapting my approach to suit mixed ability groups. This ensures that all participants leave the workshop with new insights and knowledge.

My main motivation in workshops is always to leave people with the tools to implement in their own learning. So I don’t just “teach the tunes”, I show you how to learn the tunes. There’s a distinct difference I think.

To arrange a workshop for your event please contact me to discuss requirements and fees.
