Tim arrived on time, and his playing was amazing. He learnt to play a song I gave him from a youtube clip, which he did to the note. Was one of the highlights of my day and I got a lot of complimentary comments from lots of the guests about his playing.

We absolutely adored Tim's beautiful playing at our wedding last week. Tim's skillful contribution really brought our ceremony to life. We especially appreciated the extra care he took to learn a new piece that we wanted to have played during the ceremony. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to add a friendly presence and an elegant musical component to their wedding.

    FAQs

    Do you require a stage?
    Solo guitar performances can take place in many areas - from huge concert halls to small rooms, and as a result the space required is very small.

    Do you take requests?
    Yes, I arrange many pieces of music for guitar, so even if the piece of music isn't written for solo guitar, in most cases pieces can be adjusted accordingly. As this is a time consuming process, I require a minimum of two months' notice in order to perform the piece at the highest standard.

    Can you help with arranging a set list?
    Yes - I have a huge wealth of experience at playing to different crowds, so I'm able to quickly put together an effective set for any event.

    Do you require amplification?
    In some cases the guitar can be played acoustically, but for best results I will often perform with my electro-classical guitar and a small PA. My PA is extremely high quality and can be set up quickly and without being intrusive.
