from HSK EP: “Trio HSK gives Wayne Shorter’s “E.S.P.” a dynamic reading. It’s not without humor, too—the closing bars, where the trio slows down the tempo and engages in a series of false endings, form a light-hearted contrast to the tension created across most of the tune. Harrold gets the composer credit for the charmingly- titled “Stabfest.” It’s an apposite title, as the tune is characterised for much of its length by jagged, sudden, twists and turns. Series’ guitar is at its spikiest here.” Bruce Lindsay Allaboutjazz

Willing to teach

Beginner to advanced

Credentials/Background

Have taught for over 15 years at amongst others: Fettes College Edinburgh, Cargilfield School Edinburgh, London Academy of music. I am keen to find a way of learning the guitar that each student enjoys individually and try to help with that. Areas I can help with include: Improvising concepts and ideas (e.g.through chords changes, motific development, how to build a language etc), Sight-reading, learning and building repertoire, transcribing (learning solos from the record etc), metronome use, developing rhythm, Chordal vocabulary, whilst my main interest is jazz I can also help with Classical guitar(beginner to Grade 8) and traditional Scottish/ Irish folk accompaniment.
