During breaks from touring Sam is available for private guitar lessons via Skype. Aimed at intermediate and advanced players with some knowledge of basic fingerstyle playing and alternate tunings, lessons can be tailored to individual requirements and are ideal for those looking to improve their fingerstyle playing, master their favourite acoustic folk guitar arrangements and / or come up with their own versions of traditional tunes and songs.

In addition Sam provides one-to-one mentoring sessions for songwriters, giving budding artists the opportunity to discuss and explore all aspects of the craft with a BBC Folk Award-winning professional songwriter. Songwriters come to Sam for help and advice in the form of creative and constructive feedback on their own writing, as well as for a fresh burst of inspiration drawn from exploring Sam’s own unique approach to and ideas on the subject.

Sam is also an experienced workshop and masterclass leader, recently having taught at Cambridge Folk Festival, Shrewsbury Folk Festival, Halsway Manor Guitar Weekend, and for BBC Introducing online.
