Mark Farrin

I hold a music degree from Dartington College of Arts and also studied at Utrecht Conservatory in the Netherlands. I am a member of the Registry of Guitar Tutors. I am a very experienced instrumental tutor teaching and running music workshops in various schools and privately.
I teach a wide variety of musical styles and have a very holistic and student centred approach to music education. My lessons are great fun and full of musical content. I am passionate about helping my students enjoy reaching their musical goals and potential.
I co-lead a Young Carers Music group in Torbay and Beginners groups for the Torbay and South Devon Music Centre.
