Tea and a Tune with Luke Anderson

March 7 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Luke Anderson is a 24 year old Scottish guitarist currently in his final year of study at the Royal Conservatoire Scotland (RCS) pursuing a Bachelors of Music in Classical Guitar Performance. Since starting his degree, Luke has had the privilege to receive lessons from Professor Allan Neave and Ian Watt.

Luke’s formal education began in 2015, when he attended the Junior Academy at RCS. He studied under the tutelage of composer and teacher Peter Stewart and in 2019 was accepted for full time study. Throughout this time Luke attended guitar festivals including
the Big Guitar Weekend, Classical Guitar Retreat and Ullapool Guitar Festival.

Last summer Luke had several concert highlights including the Edinburgh Society of Musicians, Classical Guitar Retreat Young Artist Series, Glasgow’s Spire Concert Series and St Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh. Other projects have included teaching on the RCS
Guitar Summer Course and being invited to conduct the RCS Guitar Orchestra – an initiative which brings together young musicians. Additionally, Luke was also part of a recent recording project for luthier Ryan Gibson which involved recording various pieces
on newly built classical guitars.

Aside from his work as a solo guitarist, Luke performs across a wide range of genres. He regularly plays in musical theatre shows and can be found performing across Scotland with his band Travelling Jukebox at weddings and corporate events. Luke also has a passion for teaching and runs a studio in his home town of Gourock where he teaches weekly.

Throughout his studies Luke has had the opportunity to receive masterclasses from renowned players such as Sean Shibe, Paul Galbraith, Stephanie Jones, René Izquierdo, Thomas Viloteau and Gabriel Bianco.

“Classical guitarist Luke Anderson performed as part of the Spire concert series in Glasgow on Saturday 17 September 2022. It was a flawless performance from start to finish. Luke’s choice of programme in addition to his fluid dexterity and superb dynamic nuances made this an exciting recital in front of a spellbound audience. His introductions to the pieces were well thought out, and delivered in a relaxed and pleasant manner. A young man with an exciting future ahead of him.” – Daisy Henderson, Classical Musicians Scotland
