Hello and thanks for taking the time to visit my site. I am a Multi-instrumentalist who plays and teaches in the Sheffield area. I have been teaching for over ten years privately from my studio in Totley on the outskirts of the city and also in local schools for Sheffield Music Services.
I give instruction on Guitar, Bass Drums, Ukulele and keyboards.
The styles I teach are Rock, Blues, Classical, Acoustic, Fingerstyle & Jazz. I also teach sight reading and improvisation.
The teaching area is a state of the art Studio with a full drum kit, keyboards, guitars and amplifiers. I also have computer based teaching aids and recording equipment where students can record their progress.
I first started to play the musical instruments over forty years ago and have played in many bands duets and as a solo artist.
The group I play guitar in at the moment is group is The Harley Earl Blues Band. We are a four piece group playing Chicago Blues covers some and original material written by myself especially for the group.
I also formed the oddly named Half Lung Club with bass player Rick Colbeck and enjoyed a regular slot playing fingerstyle acoustic mood music in a local wine bar. This also led to my first album.
I hope you find the site useful and interesting.
