Ian Griffiths

Guitar Tutor

Ian Griffiths is the Guitar Tutor at the Academy. As a youngster, he took classical guitar lessons, and cut his teeth playing guitar, bass and the occasional harmonica, and performed in church bands, youth rock groups and the open mic circuit. More recently Ian has studied under acclaimed performer and composer Nick Fletcher. 


Having studied Architecture at university in Sheffield, Ian found his passion for music outstripped his planned career, and soon moved into the musical field. He has since taught guitar and mandolin privately, at Birkdale School and the Sheffield Music Academy as well as performing regularly in Sheffield an the surrounding area.


Ian has also worked in Artist Management as a press writer and publicist, and has promoted a number of international touring musicians in this role. Outside of the musical world, he enjoys old computer games and digging up the allotment with wife Jenny.
