Full time Teacher, Music Producer & DJ.

In addition to teaching private individuals, I teach Music Production & DJing in schools working with Noise Academy, U.K.

I'm a friendly and engaging teacher offering bespoke tuition across the whole spectrum of music production using Ableton & DJing using both vinyl & digital formats. 

I enjoy teaching so much, the act of sharing knowledge that I am so passionate about in order to help others achieve their own passion is truly fulfilling.

I love going through students personal projects and carving out lesson plans to help them finish their projects.

Some information about my music projects:

Burland > Fusing Dancehall, Afrobeat and West African Percussion with the powerful elements of Techno, Garage & Bass music. Featuring collaborations with K.O.G (Nubiyan Twist, Onipa), Zongo Abongo (The Busy Twist) and Master Drummer Okoe Ashiboi-Amartifio (formaly Kakatsitsi).

Songlines competition winner and a regular on BBC radio 6 receiving support from Gilles Peterson, Jamz Supanova and Toddla T.

Sir Rah > Connecting the dots between Breaks & 140/Dubstep, with releases on Dissident Sound & Sicaria Sound’s label Cutcross.

Please get in touch to discuss lessons.

I cater my teaching style to the student, for example:

A) If a student has a specific project they want to work on, we can work on this together and the student will learn through working on their project with my help.

B) I can provide a curriculum to learn specific practices and provide examples from which to learn, and set homework to be reviewed in the following lesson.

C) For students looking to pass exams or practical assignments, I can teach and develop projects based on a provided curriculum.
