Who We Are

From 1995 to 1998 he attended the London College of Music where he studied classical guitar with "...one of the great communicators of the guitar world"*, Carlos Bonell. Upon graduating, David continued in South London teaching, performing and studying, gaining an IMF teaching diploma as well as a guitar diploma from the London College of Music.
