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, student-centred music learning experience that is fun, focused, and effective.
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. Click on the ‘Student Feedback’ button below, to read previous students’ comments.
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.

Zoom lessons are also 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.
