As a professional musician who has performed as far afield as Canada, Middle East and the U.S.A. in bands and appearing as a solo performer, Richard now teaches students of all ages and ability, from children with their first guitar through to the advanced player who is looking to further develop their skills from his studio in Nottingham.
