Why I Love Guitar

My journey with the guitar began at the age of 7 when I started learning from my eldest brother. The moment I plugged in his old Höfner Guitar, I was hooked for life. By the age of 15, I made the bold decision to pursue a career as a guitarist in a rock 'n' roll band and performed my first gigs with school friends. 

After numerous lineup changes, our band finally achieved semi-professional status at 17, playing paid gigs around my hometown.

Our hard work paid off, and we gained local success, finding a manager and getting signed to a major record label and publishing house, Warner Chappell Publishing. This led to major tours, recording opportunities, and country-wide recognition.

Since then, I have continued to work as a full-time musician, singer-songwriter, and producer in my studio. Along the way, I earned an HND in Media and completed a year of teacher training. 

Around 20 years ago, I began teaching guitar professionally at Linda Law Music School, where I taught smaller groups of students and eventually set up my own teaching business.
