We’d like to introduce you to Guitar Noize and share their latest feature on Lichty Guitars.
Meet Jon Bloomer, Founder of Guitar Noize. Jon began playing guitar when he was young and received his first electric guitar at age 12. As Jon shares the story …
“By the age of 16 I was a competent electric guitarist winning a Dudley Schools Scholarship for my performance of Vivaldi’s guitar concerto in D Major arranged for electric guitar which I used to buy my first Classical Guitar. That year I also moved on from School to Kidderminster College in England where I studied A Level Music and Performing Arts. I also began Classical guitar lessons and in 2 short years managed to attain a Distinction in my Grade 8 guitar exam and then a Trinity College Performance Diploma.
At the age of 18 I began my music degree at Birmingham Conservatoire (England) studying Classical guitar with Simon Dinnigan, Jazz with Fred Baker and Composition with Prof. Andrew Downes. During my time at the Conservatoire I also studied Sitar, took part in a 120 person choir performing music such as Mozart’s Requiem Mass and eventually helped create a new Music Technology & Composition course that I also taught in my final year to 1st and 2nd year students. I graduated 4 years later with a 1st Class Bmus (hons).”
Now, a few years down the road, what makes this so cool is that Jon has gone on to create a career in music, through his playing, his teaching (yep, he even teaching guitar internationally via the web through Skype) and through the creation of a website for guitar enthusiasts: www.guitarnoize.com. This site is chock full of resources and reviews!
The focus is heavy on electric guitars, and from time to time, Jon spotlights acoustic guitars. Most recently, an acoustic guitar builder, Jay Lichty. We hope some of Jon’s readers who are electric guitar fans are looking for that really special custom acoustic to add to their collection!
