Hi, I’m Karl, – self confessed music obsessive, – born to teach.

I believe my decades of experience, my passion and enthusiasm, my love of music and of teaching all combine to provide you with a unique music learning experience that is fun, focused, and effective.

In the last few years, rather than performing, my passion has been for teaching, where I draw deeply on more than forty years of experience, as both teacher and musician, to provide a personalised, student-centred, and fun music learning experience.

I’ve been teaching for most of my adult life. For the last fifteen or so years I’ve taught guitar and the hugely popular ‘Band Lab’ classes at the annual Summersong Music Camp, where I have also led workshops in a capella singing and Irish ‘mouth-music’.  

As well as tutoring private students, I am currently teaching three levels of guitar classes, plus a music theory class, at Byron Community College.  I also have extensive experience teaching songwriting courses and workshops at Byron Community College, Coast Acoustic Music Association and Loose Acoustic Enterprises.

I am currently open for in person lessons, but please note that, in compliance with current Public Health Orders, we can only do face to face lessons if you have been double vaccinated. Wearing a mask and QR code checkin are still required.

Zoom lessons are still available. If you want to book a Zoom lesson, you can reserve your day/time here, and please be sure to specify “Zoom lesson” in the ‘Appointment notes’ box of the booking form. I will then send you the login details for your session.
