This is how a referee rated Brett:
Brett Charles Luthier
I was born in Skipton, North Yorkshire in 1965. I first started playing the guitar aged thirteen, then went on to study music at Harrogate School of music and arts. I was taught by Peter Newsome and Mark Stockall.
I became good friends with Robin Pearson and Kate Dickison of the Nottingham Guitar Centre and met Julian Bream and Dame Peggy Ashcroft also in Nottingham. I made my first guitar aged fifteen. I Then had along lay off from the guitar from the age of twenty one, only playing occasionally.
When my father died in 2007 it was what motivated me to start playing the guitar again. It was then that I started to make the Spanish Classical Guitar.
My aim is to achieve success along with the top Luthiers off today. I met Luthier Kenneth Roberts when I was aged fifteen and having got in touch with him Three years ago we have become good friends. His advise has been invaluable and i'm also friends with Luthier Peter Barton and Bill Dinsdale. They are both professional guitar makers who also have been a great help to me with their knowledge and wisdom.
With their encouragement my guitar making is going from strength to strength.
I have been teaching the classical guitar for 30 years, teaching students of all ages from beginners to advanced players.
My Approach to Tuition is I first like to understand what a student wants from the tutor, e,g, If one wishes to study electric guitar or folk guitar or just wishing to learn chords. Then this can be discussed, But I am a classical guitarist and like mainly to teach the classical guitar. for beginners I teach a student to sit correctly with the guitar with the correct posture and to read music. Studying from the Sophocles Papas Method for the Classical guitar. For more advanced players I Help more with technique problems.
