I am a guitarist and guitar teacher from a small village in North Yorkshire. I have been playing for nearly thirty years and teaching for almost 20 years. I started playing when I was very young and developed a fascination for the guitar which remains to this day as well as a keen interest in music theory. You never stop learning. After leaving school I went to music school for three years and then worked as a pro guitarist mostly doing contract work. Nowadays I teach privately, spend time building my website, www.smguitars.co.uk , and play in a band. Away from the guitar I enjoy the beautiful game of rugby union and looking up at the stars.
