Hi and thank you for checking out this page.


A little about me, my name is Darren Richards and I’m a guitar teacher from Cornwall, originally coming from Newlyn. I have been playing the guitar since the age of 13 and studied music at Truro College before moving to Brighton at the age of 19 to study the guitar at the Brighton Institute Of Modern Music.

I have extensive live playing experience and have played at venues all over the country and festivals such as The Isle Of White festival. Here is a picture of me playing with my band The Perils at one of our many gigs.

Whilst playing with The Perils I had the pleasure of playing with acts such as The Buzzcocks, Carbon Silicon and below a picture of me playing alongside one of the greatest guitarists of all time, Gary Moore.

After the band went our separate ways I started teaching the guitar full time for The Brighton Guitar Academy as well as working as a dep tutor for The Brighton Rockschool and Sussex Academy Of Music.

Which brings me to today, I am now living back in Cornwall and my main aim is teaching people how to master the guitar through my own guitar courses and lessons. I have been teaching privately at Trevada music since 2013 and currently proving weekly guitar lessons at St.Hilary primary school and Mounts Bay Academy as well as via Skype to students.

Thanks for reading,

Darren Richards
