From September 28th Enzo Harrison will launch a 5 week guitar crash course at Create98. We asked Enzo to get back to us on some questions, so we could learn more about our new tutor and the course itself, take a look!
How did you get into the guitar and how long have you played for?
Enzo: “I got into guitar in the most 21st Century way imaginable – through playing the video game Guitar Hero III. Needless to say I ended up opting for the real thing instead. I started playing guitar on my 8th birthday but `I really started committing myself to the instrument at 11. I wasn’t very good at being bad at something until I realised you’ve got to walk before you can run. Once that mental hurdle was out the way I started playing for hours a day.”
Who are your music idols/main inspiration?
Enzo: “Most people find this kind of question hard. But this is the sort of thing I think about in the shower so I’ve got a very well thought through answer for you. I have three guitar players that have influenced me the most : Jack White, St. Vincent and John Mayer.
What can budding guitarists expect from your course?
Enzo: “Everyday I talk to mums and dads who bring their children to my lessons saying how they regret not learning guitar themselves when they were younger. Now it’s 2019 – we have some free time, even if it’s a squeeze, if you love music it’s worth it. This course allows you to make the most of that free time, learning the bare minimum to get you on your guitar journey right away. You can expect informally taught guitar lessons with clear learning aims that maximises the time you spend playing the instrument.”
Check out Enzo’s published book of poetry online on Amazon ‘Look, Now I’m All Upset’. This is a collection of “subversive and darkly funny” poetry written in his teens.
