Can’t recommend Dean highly enough, both as a player and educator. He has an incredible way of explaining complex concepts in such a clear and simplistic manner, and really encourages you to question, develop and reflect upon your playing in ways you have never considered before. Not to mention a lovely, straight-talking and honest person. If you’re looking for inspiring lessons full of light-bulb moments and creative ideas for practice, then Dean’s your man!
