Teacher's Biography:

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.

5 reviews for Zoltan Farkas


Greatly knowledgeable and meticulous teacher.
He showed a great attention to detail in our first class capturing immediately flaws in my technique towards improver level.
Thoroughly recommend!


Zoltan had been my daughters’ guitar tutor and supported tgem with accessing tgeir Trinity College grades for years. They achieved great results and always had a sense of achievement following their exams thanks to Zoltan’s systematic way of preparation. He is a hundred percent reliable, well-organized and an extremely knowledgeable Musician!


Zoltan is a fantastic, reliable and the most amiable guitar tutor I have ever had! I have been attending his lessons for about two years now (I am a grade 7 guitarist); there are no words to express the amount of improvement my technique, musical understanding and performance skills have gone through! I always look forward to his lessons, as I know I’ll come out of the room feeling a thousand times better than before. Zoltan is also very supportive: he prepared me for my grade 7 Trinity exam and for the Rotary Young Musician of the Year.
I can’t recommend him enough!


Zoltan is a stunning musician as well as a first class guitar tutor. He is easy going, friendly and above all patient…which with me he needs to be! He pays great attention not just only to technique and musical understanding but also to the different expression of feelings that can be found within a musical composition, and how to bring these alive.
Just a truly great teacher.


I was referred to Zoltan via the now defunct Bristol Spanish guitar centre. I had no previous experience of playing the guitar or indeed any other instrument nor could I read music. Zoltan was incredibly patient of my initial stumbling steps to become acquainted with the instrument. Always encouraging but nevertheless determined to ensure that I attained good basic technique before allowing me to move on. His joy when I managed to get something right was palpable.
His enthusiasm never dwindles.
Zoltan is also a fabulous player and listening to his playing is always a motivation to continue to learn.
