Jan Rattle - Classical Guitarist

Inspired by the sound of great players of the instrument in his teens, this classical and Spanish guitarist has studied and played the guitar every since.
Partly through his own learning and partly through study with several teachers, notably Segovia-prize winning guitarist Paul Gregory, he has built a repertoire of evocative music.

He plays classical, Spanish and Latin American music, but also has a repertoire of jazz arrangements, show tunes and pop songs. This music is ideal for weddings or special occasions, parties, corporate events or to add atmosphere to hotels and restaurants.

Recently, he has worked on board the world's largest cruise ship, Royal Caribbean's 'Voyager of the Seas' playing solo classical guitar. In the past, he has played in many locations and festivals including the Brighton Festival, the Chichester Festival, the Lewes festival and the Bedford River Festival as well as in hotels and restaurants and at various private and corporate functions.

As well as playing solo, he has enjoyed performing with other musicians. Available for booking are various duos including: two guitars, guitar and mandolin, guitar and flute & guitar and violin.
