This Spanish Guitarist is an exciting, highly talented professional guitarist, specializing in providing beautiful music for every occasion, from subtle background music for private functions, to full concert performances.
He started playing guitar at the age of six and has progressed into a striking, accomplished performer of many different guitar styles, namely Classical, Romantic, Spanish and Flamenco, through to Latin Jazz, Rock and Pop.
After winning several arts competitions, he gained a music scholarship with the Amersham & Wycombe Music Centre, and had reached the final for the regional Young Musician of the Year by the age of twelve.
From this classical background, he went on to train at the University of Salford, gaining a degree in Popular Music and Recording.
As a result, he possesses the vast diversity of repertoire needed to accommodate the many different forms of function work.
In addition, he has the ability to perform on request almost any song, providing he has heard of it!
At present, he is in high demand both as a concert guitarist in the UK and Europe, and for private functions, such as weddings, dinners, parties and corporate events.
He has undertaken live session work in the UK for musicals such as Grease, Joseph and The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.
He currently plays and writes songs for a highly rated original band called 'The Other Band', who have performed at various London venues as well as the Cambridge Folk Festival.
He is also a highly respected guitar teacher, with residence at The Royal Masonic and St Clement Danes schools, as well as the Watford School of Music.
"Dear Geoff, please forgive me for not writing sooner to say how totally delighted we were with the guitarist and his wonderful guitar playing. He gave a really special atmosphere to the party and as he was sitting very near a huge paella and a large leg of Iberian ham, his Spanish tones went marvellously with the whole hispanic theme.
We were incredibly lucky with the weather for the party which was a huge success judging by the feedback I have had and anyhow we all enjoyed it hugely as did the bride and groom!
Many thanks for providing a really special element of the party which was very important to me. Your agency was so efficient and professional and he was a complete star!" MB Parker May 2013
"I was very pleased with him and would like to thank him for the sympathetic and excellent service he provided. He played beautifully and I know that several people, including myself, expressed our pleasure at his playing."
"Thank you so very much for playing so beautifully at our wedding on the 23rd. Everybody commented on how well you played and at what a special atmosphere your music gave to the ceremony. I am only sorry I wasn't in the room to hear more, but I really enjoyed the pieces you played during the signing of the register and especially appreciate you taking the time to learn Here Comes The Sun. It really wouldn't have been half as nice without you there and we are so pleased that you were! I very much hope that we will have the opportunity to hire you again in the future and until then send you all best wishes and many many thanks again."
"Thanks to him for playing so beautifully at the wedding - I'm so pleased that we booked him - much better than a harp!"
"He performed at our charity concert. He enthused the audience with his playing and we all felt like taking up the guitar after that!"
"He played the guitar with great sensitivity and it was a pleasure to hear and see him play."
"He played at our son's Christening reception, and his playing created the relaxed, welcoming atmosphere that we wanted."
"His imaginative choice of material and beautiful playing combined to create the perfect atmosphere at our reception."
