Elliott Blackler - B.A. Hons / P.G.C.E

I am a music graduate with a PGCE working as a session musician and music tutor across the UK and abroad.

I have 11 years of professional performance experience with function bands, shows and tribute acts in the UK and Australia. I have also worked as a studio
session player and live guitarist for a range of original artists in London including American Idol finalist Trenyce Cobbins. I have performed at The Ritz, The London
Hippodrome, The London Jazz Club, The Jazz Cafe, Ronnie Scott's and Sydney’s prestigious Ivy Lounge.

My extensive live performance experience includes work with a variety of professional ensembles including jazz duos, funk bands, function bands, show
bands, folk bands, country bands and rock bands. I have also lead master classes for the guitar and bass guitar for Hartnoll Guitars.

I’m a versatile guitarist with the ability to read music, improvise and write guitar parts across a wide range of musical styles including Blues, Country Rock, R ‘n’ B, Soul, Jazz, Funk and Soulful House. I have a B.A. Hons degree in Music, a P.G.C.E and have also completed my performance and music theory grades which have enabled me to also gain work transcribing and arranging for ensembles and individual musicians.

For more information please get in touch.

Thank you,
