Private Tuition I teach privately from my flat in the West End, but due to a bit of a hectic schedule, this doesn’t happen all of the time. Drop me an email through my contacts page if you’re interested!
Online Tuition I can provide lessons over Skype and zoom when I am not away on tour. If you would like to do so please get in touch through my contacts page to organise a time. I accept payment for this through Paypal, but best to confirm a slot first.

Glasgow Mandolin Band
I have started a relaxed mandolin band which meets once a month in Partick in Glasgow. It is for all ages and abilities. I provide music in advance for those who would like to look at it, but we go everything together. All mandolin players welcome, just drop me an email if you’d like more info.
