About Us

Torbay Guitar is run by Duncan Searle. I am passionate about music and love teaching.
Before establishing Torbay Guitar in 2009, I spent five years teaching music tech and media at the West Of England School And College in Exeter. I gave this position up to care for my baby daughter and concentrate on teaching guitar privately. Since then I've been lucky enough to teach hundreds of people how to play. I now teach in a number of local schools as well as teaching privately during the evenings.  
I play a wide variety of instruments but my first love was the guitar, which I have played for around 18 years. I have played and gigged with many bands in this time, I currently play Guitar with popular local band King Rat as well as performing solo. Music seems to take up a lot of my time!
Considered laid back and easy going, I enjoy meeting new people particularly those who share my love for music.
