Gary has been playing guitar since early childhood and was playing with various bands by his teenage years. During his early twenties, Gary developed a passion for the sound of the classical guitar after hearing a recording of John Williams and Julian Bream playing together. What struck him most, apart from the beautiful sound of the playing, was the fact that a classical guitarist can bring out the melody, bass and inner harmonies simultaneously to produce wonderfully rich and vibrant music.
Gary took to the classical guitar very naturally and soon achieved grade 8 with distinction, whilst forming a guitar duo with his then teacher, Guiseppe Calabro, playing in various cafes and restaurants. He then went on to pass his Associate of Trinity College London performance Diploma and performed in various solo recitals organised by his second teacher, Johnathan Richards. Since obtaining a Bachelor of Music degree in 2006, studying classical guitar under Charles Ramirez and Neil Smith, Gary became a full time performer and guitar teacher.
Gary now performs as a solo classical guitarist, providing beautiful, elegant background music at restaurants and various functions including weddings, parties and dinners. As well as playing music from the standard classical guitar repertoire, Gary also includes some flamenco, celtic, jazz and South American tunes in his set to add variety to the occasion.
In addition to this, Gary is also able to arrange music for the guitar and he has a selection of pop songs in his repertoire that are his own arrangements. He is also happy to provide this service to anyone who wishes to hear a specific tune at their special occasion, for example, a special tune to walk down the aisle to. A small amount of notice would normally be required for this to allow time to prepare the perfect arrangement for you.
Where are they based?
Gary is based in the Conwy area of North Wales and frequently plays at venues across North Wales, the North West and the West Midlands
