Hi, I’m Nigel Wheeler. I am a guitarist/songwriter and guitar tutor based in Wymondham, Norfolk.
I have worked professionally as a guitarist for over 25 years in which time I have performed as a live and studio player in many different settings and styles from solo finger style acoustic guitar to Blues, Rock, Funk, Jazz, Country, Bluegrass to Western Swing and Gypsy Jazz. I’m accomplished in most styles.
In the last 10 years I have become very active on the Gypsy Jazz scene and have worked intensively on developing my playing in this style. For the last 9 years I have been running a successful Gypsy Jazz session every other Monday evening (occasionally on a Sunday afternoon/evening) at my old local pub in North West London the ‘Oddfellows Arms‘ which has become a regularly attended event by both players on the scene and fans of the style. I also now run two sessions in Norfolk one at The Feathers in Wymondham and another at The Reindeer in Norwich both sessions are alternating every two weeks on a Tuesday evening.
As well as being a busy live performer I spend anytime I’m not teaching or playing in my home studio writing and composing original music and have written music for Sony, The Daily Star, Other Productions and have also written and produced music for online catalogues including works for Zone Music and more recently No Sheet Music
I have been a guitar tutor for over 21 years, teaching all styles and levels from grade 1 through to grade 8 and beyond. I have also developed 2 courses for beginners and intermediate levels that have received a lot of praise over the years. I have successfully run these courses at a number of TV and media companies including the BBC.
