This Birmingham classical guitarist is equally at home performing music from the Classical, Spanish, Jazz or Popular repertoire. This mixture of relaxed and more animated music is guaranteed to enhance the atmosphere of any special occasion.
He has many years experience performing in concerts, festivals and for various functions including weddings, family celebrations and corporate events. He can arrange most pieces if you have a special request.
Recent performances have included Birmingham Artsfest, Malvern Festival, Edgbaston High School and various private functions.
When not performing he works as a teaching mentor for the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, as an examiner for the London College of Music, as a teaching mentor for the National Youth Guitar Ensemble and as an Advanced Skills Teacher.
Living in central England he is able to travel to most venues.
This guitarist also has the option of a battery amplifier which is very useful for outdoor bookings.
"Just wanted to say many, many thanks for your playing on Saturday. My Mum really loved it and lots of people said to me how nice it sounded. I will certainly recommend you in the future! Best wishes and hope you have a lovely Christmas!"
"A fascinating musical experience" Birmingham Post
"It is a great CD with all the varying moods created. It was lucky that I found notification of your appearance on The Net and was able to combine your show with a bit of retail therapy!!! What a treat!! I thoroughly enjoyed seeing you at the Art Gallery."
"Hi Geoff, we were extremely pleased with the guitarist. He was very professional throughout and both flexible (due to the weather) and approachable (to conversation with guests). He even learnt a specially requested song for the day. I would recommend both him and The classical Guitar Agency again. P.S. the free CD was a big help in deciding."
