About Adam Smithson, Guitar Tutor
I started playing guitar at the age of fourteen. After a stint teaching myself I went on to study with Philip Quigley at Lancashire Music Lessons. Soon I began performing and recording with a number of bands around the North, covering a variety of styles from metal to surf. I am now lead guitarist in North West based band Jessicas Ghost.
I have been playing for over fourteen years and have studied the syllabi of both Rock School and ABRSM, as well as having a degree in professional music production.
I am a member of the Musicians’ Union, have completed Child Protection Awareness training with The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, and have an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check (this is the system that has replaced Criminal Records Bureau checks)
