About the Author

Brian Ashworth has been performing as a guitarist for 36 years, initially self-taught (coming from an era where popular music had no roots in the education system in England), he wrote and toured with a Rock/Punk Band called Relay before studying classical guitar at The London College of Music. He has continued to broaden his musical interests and skills as a musician be it the study of Jazz, learning to play the drums, teaching ukulele, working in musical theatre, or playing various string instruments on TV adverts. Having played and recorded as a soloist and in many types of ensemble over the years, he has in the past decade returned to his first instrument and his interest in the electric guitar. Brian's work with Rockschool as an examiner has led to numerous presentations and workshops throughout the world, including Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Turkey, Canada, Dubai and Jordan, and he was made a senior examiner in April 2006. He also currently teaches guitar, bass and drums in Brighton. Brian was the first member of his family to have that all-encompassing desire to explore music as a teenager, but he has over a period of time and with a great sense of pleasure, seen his three children and numerous students, express a similar passion for that great art form that is music.
