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.
