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!
