I was born in Hungary in 1979 and finished my Music School in Debrecen at the Simonffy Emil Music School in 2005. I started to teach classical guitar back in 2002 and then when I moved to Bristol I joined the teaching staff of the Bristol Spanish Guitar Centre in 2008 where I am still working at present. Later on I joined the Bristol Classical Guitar Society too and I became the Musical Director of it until 2012.
I am a classical guitar specialist and would be delighted to teach you how to play the classical or Spanish guitar, as well as blues or metal guitar.
"Zoltan Farkas was an eminently talented guitar student at the Simonffy Emil School of Music in Debrecen, Hungary, where he studied under Adam Balint.
During six years of exceptional academic and performance success, Zoltan gave many acclaimed solo recitals in Debrecen and Ozd. His talent as a guitar teacher was widely acknowledged in Debrecen, which led to his participation in Educational School Programmes and he was well known for his work in the Institute of Physically and Mentally Handicapped Children and with children suffering from leukemia." - Music School from Hungary
"We are delighted to have a guitarist of Zoltan’s ability joining the teaching staff at the Spanish Guitar Centre, where he has presented concerts featuring his pupils of all abilities – from elementary to diploma standard. In recognition of his stature, the Bristol Guitar Society has appointed him their Musical Director." - Bristol Spanish Guitar Centre
