I've spent the last ten years playing bass in various styles such as jazz, rock, and funk. In this time I have performed across the UK with the likes of the National Youth Orchestras of Scotland's Jazz Orchestra, Edinburgh University Jazz Orchestra, and my own band Grace & The Flat Boys.

I specialise in teaching groove & feel, improvising from chords, reading notated music, and sound recording and music production.

I've performed at Sligo Jazz Festival, Kelburn Garden Party, Leith Theatre, McEwan Hall, and The Jazz Bar (Edinburgh), to name just a few. I'm available to teach electric bass for both beginners or more advanced players, for in person lessons within the Edinburgh area. I am open to teaching all ages and abilities, holding a full PVG certificate, and will adapt my lessons to help you achieve your best.
