Solo Classical Guitarist For Functions, Receptions And Events


Having taken up guitar lessons at the tender age of 5, and the Saxophone at the age of 11, Steven successfully auditioned for a place at the Junior Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM) in Manchester.

He went on to further his studies at the world famous Chethams School of Music under Gordon Crosskey and Wendy Jackson.

Graduating in 2011, Steven has gone on performing extensively throughout the UK and abroad as both a soloist and ensemble player.

Notable recent performances include Steven’s London debut in the V&A Museum, Steve Reich’s Electric Counterpoint at the Future Now Festival in Manchester with the composer present; Vivaldi’s Mandolin and Lute concertos at the first ever ‘Classical Music Night’ in Sheffield; 3 world premieres at the 2010 Sounds New Festival in Canterbury and solo recitals at Manchester Guitar Circle, Hyde Town Hall, Whitworth Art Gallery , Captstone Theatre, Bridgewater Hall and St Anne’s Church (Manchester).

He also gave his debut performance of Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez with the Southampton Youth Orchestra in Summer 2013.

A young and experienced musician, Steven is perfect for those looking to host parties, functions and receptions.
