Very nice day today! My student Zak got his first proper instrument a beautiful oil finish guitar from the Scottish Luthier Michael Ritchie.
Zak will begin his undergraduate studies at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in September studying both Clarinet and Guitar.
Zak is in his final year at the Junior Royal Conservatoire at the moment and achieved Grade 8 with Distinction in Guitar last summer. It was a difficult choice for him to choose between guitar and clarinet as he was offered places on both instruments at various Colleges and Conservatoires across the UK. Luckily here in Scotland he will get the opportunity to study both at a high level with Clarinet winning out as his principal study.
I remember the day I got my first really great guitar........
Good luck Zak!
