Tom Hodgkinson, ATCL, is a 17-year-old classical guitarist, currently studying under Rebecca Coulthard at Junior Trinity Laban in London. He has a genuine passion for the music of Bach, and has recently performed a recital consisting just of his music; however, he also performs much of the best-known classical guitar repertoire, such as Sevilla and Asturias. He has recently been talent-spotted by the world famous guitarist, John Williams, with whom he now enjoys the occasional lesson via Zoom!
Tom has had great success in a number of competitions, including being a Gold winner in the New Talent British International Youth Music competition in 2020. He won the prestigious Tony Gill trophy in the Leicester Guitar Competition in 2021, and was awarded the Director’s Prize for Excellence and the Aiden Massey String Prize at Junior Trinity Laban. In his spare time, Tom is an accomplished jazz guitarist and composer. He hopes to become a professional classical guitarist in the future, and loves performing!
