SEK 1: Showcases, Tutors & Venues
From November 2018 – February 2019 young & emerging guitarists from across Cornwall & the Isles of Scilly worked together to create new music with professional support. Groups from Five Islands Academy Isles of Scilly, Cornwall College St Austell, Live Wire Saltash, DBS Music Camborne & Penryn College created their own exciting music + a piece inspired by Jimi Hendrix.

John Bruce, Co-facilitator
dBs Music Hub
When I was young I was fascinated with the guitar. At the age of 14 I would sneak into my brother’s room and secretly play his guitar till I got caught! A week later when my brother sold me his guitar I couldn’t put it down and played all day long and the rest is history. I have worked as a musician playing in bands all across Europe and working as a session musician on people’s albums. Over the last 25 years I have worked as a guitar tutor and work in several schools across Cornwall as well as teaching at home! I am also a songwriter and record my own songs at home!
