Classical Guitar Lessons

Duncan Gardiner

Described as “an excellent ambassador for the classical guitar”, I am a performer, composer and educator. My playing has been described as “delicate, serene and magical” as well as atmospheric and full of nuance. My compositions have attracted similar praise: “Duncan's extraordinarily attractive music is a pleasure to listen and a delight to play”. I have performed across Europe in addition to concerts in Australia. My music is often played nationally on ABC Classic FM.
