Dan Hopes Guitar was created in January 2013 by myself, Dan Hopes. I started playing the guitar when I was 11 years old and have played live in bands within the Bristol area since then. I graduated from the Bristol Institute of Modern Music (BIMM) in 2012, with a degree in Professional Musicianship. Here, I was taught by some of the best guitarists in the country and attended masterclasses from players such as Guthrie Govan, Greg Howe (Michael Jackson), Gus G (Ozzy Osbourne), Newton Faulkner, Clive Carroll and Carl Verheyen (Supertramp).

 

I have played in cover bands over the years performing in pubs, social clubs, weddings, beer festivals and am currently part of an acoustic band called Quiescent which formed in 2012. In 2014 Quiescent successfully crowd funded their debut EP 'The Doldrums' in December 2014 and have worked with Thomas Brooman (CBE, Co Founder of WOMAD). Quiescent have supported Graham Gouldman (10CC), Josh Flowers & The Wild, Ellen & The Escapades, and have performed at the Bristol Harbour Festival in 2013, 2014 and 2015. Quiescent have been featured on independent radio stations across the country, including BBC Introducing on BBC Bristol.

I have been teaching the guitar professionally for over 3 years, and teach over 160 students on a weekly basis across schools throughout the South Gloucestershire area. I teach students between the ages of 6 to 65 years old and have a 100% success rate for grade entries, with the Trinity and RGT syllabus, these included students who have taken their first grade with me. The students I teach have performed as part of a band and within orchestras all over the Bristol area including school concerts, pub gigs and the Colston Hall.

I have been playing guitar since the age of 16 and started my professional career in 2009 as a guitar teacher.  I played Angus Young in an AC/DC tribute band 'Hells Bells'. I have played all over the UK, toured Europe and supported Iron Maiden in front of 35,000 people. I also play in an original band and a live lounge style acoustic band.  My experience also includes playing with a full orchestra in a music pit at the theatre.  While I enjoy playing all types of music I have a passion for blues, jazz, rock and acoustic finger style.
