life is a guitar, live it!
Brendon graduated from the National School of the Arts, Johannesburg, in 2002. Whilst there, he was awarded ‘Best Guitarist of the Year’ every year from 1999 to 2002 as well as ‘Top Overall Achiever’. His performing experience ranges from theatre shows and corporate functions around the world to touring festivals and main stages all over South Africa.
He is best known for playing lead guitar in rock, funk, trip-hop band, Voodoo Child, of which he is a founding member. During his years with Voodoo Child, Brendon played at Jethro Tull’s South African Tour in 2007, FORR Festival in Mozambique as well as Woodstock to name but a few. Voodoo Child received extensive radio play and global sales and were even nominated for the African Music Awards in 2010.
Along side his performing career, Brendon has been teaching since he graduated from the National School of Arts. As well as teaching private students at homes and studios, he was also the main guitar teacher at St. Stithian’s College and St Mary’s School and worked in both schools for quite a few years before he came to Hong Kong. He has trained students using the Trinity College Rock School grades as well as catering for students with more individual needs. Brendon certainly hasn’t been shying away from the stage since he arrived in Hong Kong, we’re sure you’ll find him playing on a stage near you soon. The man certainly has his finger in quite a few pies!
Brendon is currently teaching acoustic guitar, electric guitar, ukelele and bass guitar. If you would like to book a lesson with Brendon, you can get in touch with us.
