Performance at the Limit

Simon Taylor, Guitarist & Guitar Teacher

Simon Taylor, Contemporary Guitarist

Welcome to my website. I'm a versatile contemporary guitarist recently relocated to Pant, just outside Oswestry on the Welsh border. I play acoustic and electric guitar, in both classical and a wide variety of contemporary styles, incuding blues, jazz, rock & pop, soul and other dance styles. I also compose music for non-commercial purposes. I'm available as a session player, performer, composer and teacher.

I've been playing guitar for 35 years during which time I've performed and recorded in a wide range of musical settings. I am the guitarist with Caribbean function dance band, PapaMengo alongside the amazing Ruiz brothers, Curtis and Felix, and perform in my acoustic guitar duo Akustiko with the amazingly musical guitarist Russell Jarrett. I have 20 years teaching experience and have taught guitar in both primary and secondary schools.

Please take a look through my website if you are considering hiring a guitarist or band, or if you are thinking about taking guitar lessons, either as a beginner, or more advanced player. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me by email, or telephone.
