About Chris Pidgeon
CHRIS PIDGEON Music Studio Nottingham
Guitar, Bass & Drum Lessons
I have been playing guitar, bass and drums since 1982. Initially I took up the Classical Guitar, achieving Grade 8 (ABRSM) by age 18.
I was also a keen student of the Electric Guitar, playing in several school bands and musicals.
I also studied the Bass Guitar to an advanced level on both four and five string variants.
Alongside this, I was inspired (at school) to take up drums and percussion. I took classical percussion lessons, eventually achieving Grade 8 (Guildhall) on combined percussion.
I attended the South Notts Music School on Saturdays, eventually leading the percussion sections in their Senior Concert Band and Symphony Orchestra.
I progressed form here into Notts County Concert Band, and finally the Nottingham Philharmonic Orchestra, the regions leading amateur orchestra.
Following these early experiences, for the past 25 years I have played guitar, bass or drums in numerous professional and semi-pro bands, ranging from a flamenco/jazz nylon strung duo to several function/corporate/party bands, performing a vast selection of material at all manner of events and venues.
Teaching and performing music is my passion, and I count myself very fortunate to be able to make my living from doing what I enjoy most.
Away from music, I live with my wife and daughter in Woodthorpe, just north of Nottingham.
