Hotels, restaurants, cafés, bars, garden parties… you get the idea. Reggie can provide modest background music which will add to your venue’s atmosphere like an exquisite soundtrack to a film.
Receptions, breakfasts and post-functions. All kinds of packages are available to make your special day that bit more special. Please put forward any special requests.
If you’re interested in organising a recital, or perhaps featuring a guest artist as part of a concert, Reggie has tremendous experience at presenting, performing and entertaining audiences.
Reggie can provide up to five hours worth of live music. Every hour will generally be followed by a short break which can be occupied with pre-recorded music.
Reggie can supply his own amplification, if necessary, which consists of a 600i Yamaha PA System; this equipment can comfortably fill a large area with 100+ people as well as more intimate setting at appropriate levels.
Rates are subject to events so please get in touch for an estimate or quote.
Reggie also performs with acclaimed Cellist Piaf Knight in concerts and weddings. Please visit their Facebook page or contact Reggie directly to find out more.
I have a tremendous passion for teaching guitar and have had the good fortune of working with many enthusiastic students from a large range of backgrounds. I have a broad knowledge of guitar I have acquired through years of study and experience as a professional musician. I take great pleasure and pride in the work I do and feel I am a suitably qualified tutor.
My mission statement is: “My primary role is to help you develop the abilities you need to realise what it is you would like to get out of guitar and music. I will introduce you to ideas and materials that best coincide with your interests to achieve this.”
I produce my own teaching resources and so students need not purchase any specific books/pieces as part of our lessons. That being said, I am very encouraging towards integrating a student's interests into our lessons. I do teach the ABRSM and Trinity Guitar syllabuses (graded exams) although I do not advocate these methodologies, at least not to begin with.
The first session is always free and will mostly be a discussion about what it is you are wanting to achieve with guitar and music and what I can do to help. However, I promise we will get the guitars out and make some sounds before we finish!
If you do not own a guitar I can happly supply you with one of my student guitars until you make the comitment.
My teaching rates are £12 per 30 minutes, £18 for 45 minutes and £24 for one hour.
I am DBS checked as of July 2015.
Reggie Lawrence is a freelance guitarist from Doncaster, Yorkshire, based in Epsom, Surrey. Reggie was first introduced to the guitar at age seven and studied with Vicky Bodman throughout his childhood. Reggie continued his studies at the University of Hull where he went on to complete an Undergraduate Degree in Music and a Master’s Degree in Classical Music Performance working with Rob Johns, Gilbert Biberian and Graham Wade.
Reggie has performed with several musicians including fellow guitarist Richard Silvester, cellist Piaf Knight, and guitarists Matt Burton and Scott Williams as part of the guitar trio ‘Three Quarters’. Reggie is currently preparing new repertoire with Piaf for a series of concerts taking place over winter across the South East/ London area.
Reggie has composed many pieces for solo guitar and ensembles that have featured in numerous concert programmes. Reggie has been commissioned to write music for the software development company Smashed Crab Studio and continues to collaborate with them in future projects.
Reggie is highly interested in editing music and has dedicated much of his academic work towards the development of editing practices of guitar music. Reggie is currently re-editing the guitar music of the 19th century guitarist Fernando Sor as part of an extended research project with Professor Stephen Goss.
Reggie writes a guitar-focused blog called, unsurprisingly, ‘The Reggie Lawrence Guitar Blog’. Reggie releases a new article every other Friday that discusses some aspect of his ‘ever expanding philosophy of all things guitar’.
Reggie is an avid research of the guitar and has given lectures at Sydney Sussex College, University of Cambridge and the University of Hull. Reggie is a member of The Cohort of Guitar Research.
