Production/recording and session work

I run a small but perfectly formed recording studio, practice and teaching space out of my garden in Leytonstone - East London Mini Music Studio - it can be rented by the hour and includes my services. I can be as involved with the production/arrangement as desired - anything from simple recordings up to full-scale productions. I work closely with Café Music Studios in Bow, combining forces with them will enable tracks to be mixed and mastered to full industry standard. Below is a video demonstrating my instrumental playing in a track that I wrote and recorded myself. I am also available for sessions, having wide ranging experience both live and in the studio and across many different genres.

Instrumental tuition

I offer private tuition on guitar (including effects and pedals) and drums to students of all ages. Depending on the interests of the student, I can also incorporate elements of recording, composition, production and arranging into the lessons. If students are interested in recording bodies of work I can also assist with this.

I have a clean Basic Disclosure check form, the individual's equivalent to a CRB check.

 

Teaching style

From experience I've found that people are far more likely to stick to extracurricular learning that they enjoy, therefore I approach each student as an individual. I focus as much as possible on the disciplines and styles that they have most interest in. I cover a large base - from various specific instruments to help with recording/writing/arranging and through various different genres so it's best to find a specific niche with the student and see where their interest takes them from there. Essential technical fundamentals can be woven into this process, I've found that potentially laborious groundwork becomes engaging as soon as there's a clear goal at the end of it.

Fees

I typically charge £25 per hour for session work.

Lessons are £25 for an hour, £15 for half an hour.

Recording sessions in my studio are £20 per hour.
