About Me

CURRENT MISSION

See some more of the world and keep on going until I can no more.

ABOUT ME

Ok, so....I am living and working in Berlin as a professional music teacher and I give private tutoring for guitar and bass.
You can contact me if you would like to have a go. 0176 45726750.

Happy to listen and take things in and think about it and possibly even get involved in discussion and drink a bit and engage in humour and jollity.
Like eating and not so much watching TV-it's passed its sell by date for me.
I have spent most of my life indulging in creative art forms such as music, writing, thinking and in more recent years the art of haphazard computer art creations that have brought about great interest in the city of Berlin Germany.
Just to add....I am traveling with my partner Kim. She is from the USA.
I shall add more info about her soon but of course I must consult her as to this. I'm sure she will like the idea of couchsurfing.

PHILOSOPHY

It varies according to each and every new experience that might have some kind of profound effect on me and perhaps my mood at the time of questions regarding what I think and what my feelings are about a given subject matter.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

We are on here to take advantage of a wonderful idea and to offer the same to others and perhaps to exchange other wonderful ideas that may arise from participation.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

We're looking forward to many in which knowledge and experiences are exchanged in conversation and perhaps activities such as relaxing and sampling some good beer or wine.

Interests

Creative art forms of which there are too numerous to mention.
Travel.
Getting to the bottom of things.
Conversation.
Exchange of ideas.
Inventiveness.

Music, Movies & Books

Music, quite a lot of things. Most strongly and affective was and still is the music that formed my foundation for a passion for music which was that of the early 70's from when I used to see it on TV as a very young child and later on that which was generally regarded as awful rebellious noise and even later on the things that this gave rise to. I formed a retrospective taste in music during my former years of discovery-i.e. a curiosity for 50's and 60's music.
Presently I am still continuing that discovery of many things musical.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Can't think of anything off hand at the moment, but I shall enter something here when I do.

Teach, Learn, Share

Well, in Berlin Germany I was teaching guitar and bass guitar for 3 and a half years to a total of around 40 students.
Recorded and performed as a working musician for the duration of my time in Germany.
Had a brief spell at teaching English to a lady in Berlin, albeit rudimentary, but effective.
Kim was working as a singer.
