Head of Guitar
Steve has been playing both electric and acoustic guitar since he was eleven years old. With over ten years of teaching experience, he brings a real passion and energy to his lessons. Some of Steve’s previous students have continued their music studies in the UK either at university or at BIMM. Steve’s passion for the electric guitar in particular, has seen him play in local band The Boogie Men while more recently he has joined a function band enabling him to play anything from contemporary music to good old rock n’ roll!
Glenn brings with him a wealth of experience both in his instrument and in performance – skills which have been acquired over the course of several decades.
Brought up in a musical family, Glenn dabbled with several instruments at an early age before deciding at the age of 9 that the guitar was the one for him. He began honing his skills by playing in church before going on to play in Christian band Filament. In 1989 Glenn joined local heavy metal band Nemesis and in 1995 he became lead guitarist/vocalist in Guernsey’s longest-running functions band City Limits of which he is still a member some 20 years later. City Limits still enjoys great success in Guernsey being regularly booked for private functions as well as performing publicly in various popular music venues.
Glenn is an extremely skilled and versatile guitarist who is keen to help others get the best from their guitar and achieve their goals in music.
Joe started playing guitar aged 11 and has been playing in local bands and recording music ever since. He has played at local venues including the Fermain Tavern and The Vault and at events such as Vale Earth Fair and Chaos. His band ‘Dead Steady’ won Thirst’s ‘Battle of the Bands’ competition in 2018. Having achieved an A grade in GCSE Music, which involved song-writing and performing, Joe is still invited back to St Sampson’s High School to play bass guitar in its orchestras and jazz band. Joe is passionate about the guitar and enjoys sharing his enthusiasm with others. He recognises the freedom of expression that playing a musical instrument offers and is keen to help others realise their musical potential. Joe’s musical influences include Red Hot Chili Peppers, Gary Moore, Thin Lizzy, Rush and Bob Dylan to name but a few.
