Band to Join.

ABOUT

Young guitarist looking to expand his repertoire and gain experience in both new and familiar styles of music and contexts. Currently, I am working in a functions/wedding band playing a combination of R&B, pop and classic rock tunes, tutoring privately and in classroom contexts and am currently towards the end of a BMus at AIM majoring in Contemporary Performance; studying under Mark Johns and Jeremy Sawkins.

Very high level reading skills; AMEB equivalent of Grade 8 on classical guitar.

I'm mostly looking for paid work only but if you think you have a project that might interest me, feel free to get in contact and we can discuss it further.

Influences

This would be a topic that would be better had over coffee and, if anything contentious were to be brought up, potentially whiskey. The list is rather varied, travelling from Bach to Herbie Hancock and Gershwin to Funkadelic. I love an awful lot of music, let's just put it that way.
