New Teacher: Welcome Isabel Torres!

We’ve recently welcomed Portuguese Guitarist Isabel Torres on board at Bruce Music.

Isabel relocated to London a few years ago to study for a Music Degree, and has joined our team of London Guitar Teachers in early 2015.  She is a virtuoso Guitarist and performer and an experienced teacher, having started teaching at a very young age in her native Portugal.  She has particularly impressive experience with SEN (Special Educational Needs) students, and groups of young children.

She has performed live on Portuguese Television when aged just 16, and since moving to the UK has become a regular performer on the touring and festival circuits.

She’s comfortable playing just about any style of music, but is a specialist in Rock, Blues and Jazz

Here she is last month, performing some super-cool Jazz guitar!

To book a lesson with Isabel, or any other of our teachers, Get in touch!

Music & London Part 2

Here’s part 2 of our Music & London blog series, celebrating where Music and London meet in a selection of the best videos on the internet.  Here are today’s two offerings:

1) London in 1927

This incredible colour footage of 1920s London shot by an early British pioneer of film named Claude Frisse-Greene, who made a series of travelogues using the colour process his father William – a noted cinematographer – was experimenting with.

The film is set to two unbelievably beautiful pieces of music, made all the move moving by the accompanying cinematic, historic footage.

They are:

1 – “Parasol” by Jonquil

2 – Comptine d’un autre ete – yann tiersen

2)  Busker Jack Broadbent

Great footage of hip-flask-slide-guitar busker Jack Broadbent doing his thing on the streets of London.  His intense, deeply bluesy performances make his busking style one of the coolest, most Guitar-centric around.

Please share your own Music & London videos with us!
