About Dan Nixon

Professional guitarist available for teaching, theatre, recording, and live shows.
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Hello! I’m Dan and I’m a guitarist based in East Sussex, UK.  I find myself in a very fortunate position that I play guitar for a living, and I couldn’t be happier doing it! I’ve been playing guitar for over 15 years, having been inspired to take up the instrument from listening to players such as Eric Clapton, Tony Iommi, John Frusciante, Jimi Hendrix, John Mayer, and David Gilmour, to name but a few. In 2011, I graduated from BIMM with a First Class BA (Hons) in Professional Musicianship, and since then have embarked on a varied and highly rewarding career playing the guitar through gigging, teaching, touring, performing in musical theatre and aboard luxury cruise ships. ​ ​ ​

My Daughter had guitar lessons with Dan and was utterly inspired by his teaching. It makes a huge difference for children to be taught contemporary tunes by professional musicians to whom they admire and look up to. My daughter now plays electric guitar and bass at home, in her secondary school band and rock band. I'm not sure if there is a better endorsement than that.

Dan played for our summer party and was fantastic, great fun tunes with a wide range to please everyone, and his guitar skills are second to none! Nice guy too! Hoping he's free for our next event!!
