The Manchester Classical Guitarist - Classical Guitarist

The Manchester Classical Guitarist is a graduate of Birmingham Conservatoire, Robert studied with International classical guitarists Craig Ogden and Simon Dinnigan, and composers Andrew Downes and John Mayor.

The Manchester Classical Guitarist has more than 25 years experience playing Spanish & classical guitar at weddings, functions and events. His versatility means he can bring whatever mood a particular event requires, from soft, gentle, beautiful, to more upbeat. However, his unique selling point is his general pazzazz as a guitarist and his ability to really liven things up if required!

He performs regularly for both events and the concert stage, and is well known for being a truly versatile musician. Whilst classical guitar is his main focus, he is also a top acoustic finger style player, a soulful electric pop/rock/blues player, a blues/jazz pianist, a bass guitarist, a keen ukulele player and finally, a country pickin' tenor banjo player.

The Manchester Classical Guitarist is an active composer with a string of international radio, TV and online credits to his name for his music in advertisements, documentaries and information films.

As a guitarist, his versatility means he can skip between genres, styles, techniques, and moods flawlessly, as demonstrated on his 2015 album 'Worlds of the Guitar'.

In his solo concert performances, he combines both classical and cross-over repertoire covering a whole range of styles from baroque to blues, classical, Spanish, jazz, folk, world music and popular. He also features a number of his own compositions.

A former 'Young Musician of the Year' contestant, he has performed in Japan, Malaysia, Morocco, Germany, Poland, throughout the UK, and he is one of the few British musicians to have been invited to perform in Belarus, in 2010.

In addition to performing, he runs his own Music School in Cheshire.
