Rory is a specialist bass guitar tutor, composer and session clinician based in the UK. His journey first started in 1986 when his brother gave him a guitar and from that day on he was hooked. Before long Rory was learning to play classic guitar riffs from legendary artists past and present, but it was the bass elements of the music that came naturally to his ear.
Rory was developing a real love for music in general and the key role that bass played, and was hearing the drum pulse in music so clearly that he now just wanted to lock it in with this new exciting bass sound. Thus in 1989 he turned his hand to the electric bass guitar and hasn't looked back.
Twenty three years experience has led Rory to where he is today - a fulltime active bass guitar tutor and versatile musician. In teaching the instrument, he has been able to share his valuable knowledge, experience and enthusiasm with all he meets.
Rory's has recently worked with legendary guitarist Paul Gilbert as his session bassist for a live show in the UK, and will be heavily involved in working with further world class guitarists from 2013 onwards. Rory’s dedication and passion to the music industry has led to him earning artist endorsements with major companies.
Rory is also the Musical Director for Marett & Messenger, a creative advertising agency and production company based in the UK. So when Rory's not teaching, or covering a live session, he’s writing their latest musical masterpiece for TV.
