Song Repertoire

Over the years that I've been teaching I've built up quite an extensive and wide ranging repertoire of songs. I always like listening to new things so I encourage my students to suggest new songs to me as well as making my own suggestions. I'm always happy to learn them on guitar too. Please have a browse below to see the kind of things I've worked on with my students. Look out for the * which means I can't accompany on guitar, otherwise assume I can.This is only a fraction and there are plenty more!
