Classical Guitar / Banjo / Double Bass



John Breese studied classical guitar with virtuoso musician and composer Vincent Lindsey-Clark, where he achieved the highest distinction mark in his year for performance at Masters level at university. John now performs professionally, giving solo recitals on guitar, as well as touring internationally playing banjo and double bass with bands such as Cardboard Fox, Pet Yeti, Vintage Roots and Thunderbridge Bluegrass Band.

Currently based in Bath, John is an experienced teacher. An important aspect of his Masters degree was recognising the significance of individually styled tuition in order to inspire and motivate students. He welcomes all ages and abilities, offering a carefully structured course, providing the opportunity for students to prepare for and enter exams. John has a broad knowledge of contemporary and traditional repertoire to enhance learning. John has consistently achieved distinction for all his guitar exams up to and including performance at masters degree level.
