Matthew Nisbet is establishing a classical guitar teaching practice in Wrington. He may be familiar to some of you from the front cover of the November 2013 Journal. In that photograph, he can be seen playing an instrument called a theorbo, an old member of the plucked-string family of instruments popular before the classical guitar arrived. After studying with the celebrated English guitarist John Mills at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and in masterclasses with John Williams, Matthew taught the classical guitar professionally for several years. During this time he worked as a peripatetic teacher, as a specialist tutor at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. He also delivered courses in the guitar and music history at the University of Liverpool. Matthew went on to pursue his studies further at Indiana University in America. He currently teaches at Weston College and is also on the staff at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama Junior Conservatoire (for ages 4-18). Matthew lives in Wrington with his wife Emily and their daughter Lilia. If you are interested in studying the guitar with Matthew please email or telephone - see above. Lessons are held in the Reading Room and the fee is £17 for half an hour.
