About Alan Green

Alan's musical adventures began with the Headmistress of his School giving recorder lessons when he was six. Those early lessons are so ingrained upon his soul, that today Alan still talks about Bars, Quavers and Minims, and twitches visibly whenever the name Mrs Bailey is mentioned. Later escapades included Mother's Ruin, Block A and more bands that nobody has ever heard of. Eventually, he arrived in the Classical Guitar world where he lives to this day (actually, he lives in Essex in England but that part of Essex is really unromantic). As well as performing, Alan Green teaches guitar in ten mainstream Schools, and two specialist Music Schools in Essex and provides private guitar tuition. Contact him about private lessons via his website Rollmop Music.
