Derek Hasted

I'm Derek Hasted - a Classical Guitarist in Poynton, Cheshire.

Classical Guitar is my job, my career, my vocation. I have a teaching diploma and I'm a Fellow of the Independent Society of Musicians

I teach at all standards from beginner upwards - I have a dedicated teaching website if you are interested in lessons with me

When I lived in Hampshire, I founded an informal Guitar Ensemble for adults who are novice to intermediate standard - a fortnightly chance to play music with friends and enjoy a big sound for not too much effort - it still continues!

I compose & arrange - my music is played in Europe, Canada, the Americas, Australasia... Search for me on YouTube

I perform in concerts
