Colin Elsworth (electric and classical guitar)

Colin Elsworth, although first and foremost a contemporary electric guitarist, studied classical guitar at the Birmingham Conservatoire of Music under the auspices of leading virtuosi Mark Ashford, Mark Eden and Simon Dinnigan.  Whilst here, as well as graduating with honours in the summer of 2006, he was also awarded the Birmingham Conservatoire Guitar Prize for outstanding performance.

Today Colin is in high demand as a tutor due largely to his stylistic diversity as a guitarist, delivering everything from a modern yet traditional approach to the classical instrument, to the contemporary techniques of today’s virtuoso electric guitar players.  As such Colin’s appointments have included everything from solo and chamber classical guitar recitals, to contemporary dance shows and musicals.
