Classical Guitarist Wellington

Kia Ora

My name is Barry and I play solo Classical Guitar. I am an experienced musician who loves to play, and have done so for over 30 years. I studied at music at  Otago University, graduating in 2004.

If you are looking for some relaxing accompaniment or background music  for your wedding, corporate event or private function then the classical guitar is an ideal choice.

Intimate and unobtrusive.  It is ideally suited to both acoustic or amplified environments and can add a real sense of style to an occasion.

 Situated in Karori,  I’m available for weddings, private or corporate events and special occasions in Wellington, Upper, Lower Hutt’s and the wider Wellington area.

The Classical Guitar

The Guitar has been gradually developed over hundreds of years and there is a  rich repertoire of material available as a result.  Many pieces have been composed specifically for light entertainment, such as divertimento and interludes, right through to more contemporary and romantic pieces. Something to suit every mood or occasion. My repertoire  includes examples from all the main historical periods of the guitar’s history. Including Renaissance, Baroque, Romantic and Classical as well as some more contemporary pieces and some of my own compositions.
