Gary will deliver an illustrated talk titled ‘How to do your best in Guitar Exams’

He was personally involved in selecting and setting material for the new ABRSM guitar exams, and he is also an examiner for ABRSM, so he is perfectly placed to really know what it is that examiners are looking for and how candidates can prepare most effectively.

The talk will involve all aspects of preparing for an exam, and will include demonstrations of material, with time for discussion. Gary is a wonderful speaker and his talk will entertain and enlighten on the whole subject of graded examinations.

Gary’s live performance titled ‘Redefining The Classical Guitar’

A recital, featuring Gary’s own compositions, as well as classic work from the guitar repertoire.

“staggering technical facility around the fingerboard… Ryan demonstrates his outstanding compositional skills with his own extensive six-movement guitar solo work depicting scenes from the ‘Wild West’, a 26-minute descriptive tour de force of highly technically challenging repertoire which just happens to be exceedingly good fun to listen to.”
