Meet Your Guitar Teacher

I have been playing guitar since September 1993 when my parents finally caved in and bought me my first electric guitar. Since then I have fallen in love with guitar and music many times over. I have had the pleasure of playing in indie, rock, soul, extreme metal, progressive rock, blues and show bands.

He's a very knowledgeable, patient, creative and talented player who is always dedicated to his student’s development and progress. I’d have killed for a teacher like Jonathan years back! I’m confident that he can take your playing to the next level.

I have been teaching since 2005 and finally quit my day job in 2008 and went full time into teaching. By 2012 I was teaching 60 students a week privately and so took the next step and opened Music Nation Leeds, an independent music school in Leeds aimed at creating a hub of music education for people of all ages and abilities.


After moving to Sheffield in 2017 I chose to open Sheffield Guitar Studio to provide a local base for my lessons. Drawing on my years of teaching and running a sucessful music school I look forward to helping more students to become the guitar player that they want to be.

My main reason for opening Sheffield Guitar Studio was so that I could spend more time with my family, with whome you might bump into from time to time around lessons. I am also a proud sci-fi nerd.

I've met loads of people through teaching who have gone on to become good friends. You'll find that Sheffield Guitar Studio to be a warm friendly environment that will make you want to play more and really enjoy music.

I look forward to hearing from you.
