"I’m a classical guitarist who has been learning since the age of 8. I studied on a scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music, graduating with BMus (Hons), MA, and AdvDip, achieving a DipRAM for an outstanding recital. I’m currently performing and competing at festivals and competitions all over the world, as well as teaching students of all levels and ages. My favourite classical composer is John Dowland, and current artist is the rapper Dave. Something most people don’t know about me: I used to do Taekwondo when I was younger and got to black belt before deciding I preferred playing guitar to being kicked!"

Stefanos Karageorgie

"Stephanos began playing the violin and piano aged 4; in the following eight years, he had completed all of ABRSM's 8 grades on both instruments and began developing himself in areas not covered by the syllabus – chiefly improvisation and composition. A keen self-taught guitarist, this new instrument opened up a new palate of genres (rock, jazz, pop and more) which he incorporated into his violin and piano playing alongside Middle Eastern and Oriental influences from his family heritage. At age 15, he also added grade 8 viola to his list of qualifications. Alongside teaching, he now performs around the UK and Europe."

Codrut Muresan

"Codrut started to play guitar in high school, being part of a rock band initiated by his older brother at drums and a friend at bass guitar. His teaching activity begun before going to university and developed into a full time profession after graduating from National Music University - Bucharest, Romania. Last two years of teaching at ‘Little Strummers’ gave Codrut the chance to discover the vast British popular music from the ‘30s ukulele’s hits to the ’80 rock anthems through individual and group lessons that regularly take place at West Wycombe studio and other Little Strummers’ locations.

His main hobbies include history, politics, travelling, cooking and he likes to get involved in any live performance activity that he happens to be present at."
