    Story

    Hi everyone!

    I am so happy to announce that I have been offered a place on the prestigious Master of Classical Guitar Performance course at Universidad de Alicante, Spain! Unfortunately, I am not eligible to apply for a postgraduate loan as the course is outside of the UK. However, I am hoping that a few donations from friends, music lovers and anyone wanting to support my education can help me get to Spain where I will have the opportunity to study with world renowned maestros of the guitar, such as David Russell, Manuel Barrueco and Sergio and Odair Assad - to name a few. Read more about the course here...

    If you know me, then you know music is my life! I am a music teacher and perform regularly across Merseyside as a soloist and chamber musician (notably as one half of the D2e Duo and with the Woodside String Quartet). I am the Musical Director of the fabulous Liverpool Guitar Society, without whom I would not have embarked on a career in music. I also work part time in a supermarket, and will be doing a bit more of this to help with the funds!

    As well as having this page set up, I am going to work hard, play (guitar) harder and save, save, save! I also propose to do a number of fundraising concerts, so even if you can only donate £1, please come and listen to me and hopefully I can show you how much playing the guitar means to me!

    My target fee is the cost of the course so I would at least like to get this covered but any extra would be absolutely fabulous and would help to cover my rent and living costs for the duration of my studies.

    I will be eternally grateful if you could donate anything - no matter how small - to help me get to Spain and pursue my passion.

    Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.

      A brilliant magical evening in Moreton! Wonderful phrasing, superb diction and tonal contrast. A well-chosen programme of music. The best of luck with your studies in Spain in January!
