Sam began his musical journey at 14, picking up the bass. It was only a couple of years later that he finally picked up the guitar, initially inspired by metal and progressive rock bands. From there on it was a slippery slope, going from metal, to jazz and everything in-between.
He attended ICMP (then Guitar Institute) in 2004. This led to meeting with Martin Goulding, and later becoming one of his private students for a year, studying rock technique and improvisation. Another big turning point was his studies with Charlie Banacos, covering many areas of jazz and improvisation techniques.Currently living in London U.K, Sam is busy as a private guitar tutor.
