Rupert Horne started Guitar Clubs in 2004. He has been teaching guitar in East and West Sussex at local schools and privately since then.

During that time, he discovered which teaching materials his pupils enjoyed the most and put them in this book!

He has been playing guitar for over 30 years. When he first started learning he was lucky enough to be taught by John Whitworth, the author of the guitar tuition books ‘The Guitarists Way’. More recently he has been studying classical guitar with James Westbrook, founder of ‘The Guitar Museum’ and has regular weekly jazz guitar lessons with the acclaimed Paul Richards.

Rupert studied guitar at Chichester College and has a Diploma in Jazz guitar and performing arts. He also achieved a distinction at Grade 8 acoustic guitar with the London College of Music, of which he is a registered tutor with, and has studied classical guitar through the grading system with Trinity Guildhall. He has a Diploma in Music Teaching (DipRSL).

He also has a passion for song writing and has written and recorded four albums to date.

He lives with his wife, son, and daughter and in West Sussex.
