Timothy is a young vibrant musician specialising in high quality performances of Classical and Spanish music on the guitar.

With a large number of weddings under his belt, he has a wealth of experience performing, picking music to suit each occasion, and communicating with clients in the build up to their wedding day, to ensure they are getting exactly what they want when they want it.

Allow his finesse and musical poetry to win you and your guests over with his expansive repertoire spanning the Baroque to the present day with music from all over the globe. Request a specific genre or favourite piece in advance and arrangements can be made to tailor a perfect soundtrack to your wedding day.

He begun playing the guitar at the age of nine and has studied at the Norwegian Academy of Music, Oslo and with John Mills and Christopher Stell at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama where he graduated with a Batchelor degree with a distinction in performance and a Masters degree.

During his studies he performed at the William Walton Festival in Oldham in Spring 2004 attended by Lady Walton, and was invited to perform at her estate on Ischia, Italy the following April. He has also performed for the Singaporean Prime Minister, and at the Bolivar Hall International Guitar Festival in London and gave the first guitar recital in the Wales Millennium Centre.

In addition to playing recitals throughout the British Isles, he is available for wedding receptions and ceremonies. Either for unobtrusive live background music or informal recitals, bring style and elegance to any sized occasion with the beautiful sounds of the classical guitar.
