David Bailey

David Bailey started to play the guitar at the age of thirteen, inspired by the electric guitar sound of Hank Marvin. Throughout his teenage years, he received further inspiration from a variety of musicians of the 1960’s including the Beatles, Rolling Stones and Eric Clapton. Around this time David played in local bands.

David later became interested in both folk and classical guitar, inspired by John Williams, Julian Bream, Bert Jansch, John Renbourne and Segovia.

Following study at the Spanish Guitar Centre in London, where David studied under Simon Munting, he received further tuition from Oliver Hunt, professor of guitar at the London College of Music. After four years of intensive study, David Bailey was awarded his Associate of the London College of Music diploma in guitar performance.

In 1990 David attended Dartington College of Arts as a full time music student, graduating after a three year study period. During his time at Dartington, he studied steel string guitar under John Renbourne and Classical guitar under Stephen Gordon.

In addition to giving public performances, David has played at weddings, restaurants, hotels and for a variety of private functions. His reportoire includes Renaissance dances, 19th century guitar compositions, JS Bach, Latin American music, the Beatles, Delta Blues, Ragtime, Easy listening, Soft Rock, Folk and Celtic music.

David teaches guitar both privately and at schools. He has entered students of classical and electric guitar for Trinity College of Music and Rock School grade examinations resulting in high pass rates.

David has recorded a CD titled, Utopia, featuring a variety of instrumental guitar styles. Utopia is also one of three tracks which David composed.
