    I am not available for lessons as such, but:

    I am in my 50s and don't have the energy or the inclination to pursue a career playing music. I used too, not anymore.

    I would really like the opportunity to mentor a young player and pass on my many years of experience playing music and earning a living doing so.

    Formal lessons lock me into a schedule and due to personal reasons - I have a sick wife and I am her full time carer - I can't commit. Also, the traditional weekly lesson structure is insufficient for the greatest musical growth. A mentoring relationship often grows out of the weekly lesson format anyway, so I propose cutting that bit out.

    If you are a young musician, dedicated to artistic growth first, money and fame second, then send me a message.
