Shaun's name is synonymous with guitar playing in the UK and anyone who has ever picked up Guitar Techniques magazine will recognize the huge gift he has given to the guitar world with his monthly Creative Rock column which has been running since 1994.
Shaun co-founded the Guitar Institute in London back in 1986, where he taught for over 20 years, as well as at the London College of Music. He has also been Head of Guitar at Guitar X, and is now an owner and Academic Director of the Academy of Music and Sound, the biggest network of instrument-specific popular music schools in the UK, which already has 8 centers up and down England and Scotland.
Shaun is also notorious for his groundbreaking album Jazz Metal which was released back in 1993 and it is a tour de force of hi-tech guitar wizardry!
A master of technique, theory and style; Shaun's exclusive Scottish masterclass is not to be missed!
