The Cardiff Guitar Festival – Teaching and Performance

I am thrilled to be returning to my hometown and both teaching and performing in Wales’ capital city for the first time in many years!

  • I am very privileged to be working with the advanced students over a period of three days. During this time I will be taking classes which I hope will be original and inspiring. Over the three days I will be:
  • Directing Chamber Music classes, probably using some of my own pieces and arrangements.
  • Leading Guitar Orchestra sessions, again using my own pieces and arrangements.
  • Giving a talk about the importance of understanding advanced chord symbols and how this skill can help classical guitarists.
  • Leading an exciting and original workshop where we will make a recording and film of at least one guitar orchestra piece. The resulting creation will be edited and shared between all participants! This is an exciting and creative process which is becoming increasingly-important for tomorrow’s professionals.
